Broke through last August to win his first major title at the PGA Championship. Title meant a lot to Thomas, whose father, Mike, is a PGA of America professional and Justin's instructor. His five victories during the 2016-17 season earned Thomas PGA Player of the Year honors. That included consecutive victories in January at the Sentry Tournament of Champions at Kapalua and the Sony Open of Hawaii, where he carded a 59 in the first round at Waialea Country Club. This season, he won the CJ Cup in Korea and The Honda Classic before losing a playoff to Phil Mickelson at the WGC-Mexico Championship. During his collegiate days at the University of Alabama, he won the 2012 Haskins Award, given annually to the country's top golfer. He helped the University of Alabama to the 2013 NCAA championship. A few months later, he was a member of the victorious USA Walker Cup Team. Thomas also represented the USA on the victorious 2012 World Amateur Team in Turkey. Last fall, he helped the USA win the Presidents Cup.
