Broke through to win his first major title in the 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, N.C. The 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 in 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. Took over the No. 1 spot in the Official World Golf Ranking from Jon Rahm with his victory in the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational in Memphis, Tenn. It was Thomas' third win of the 2019-20 wrap-around season and first since the Sentry Tournament of Champions in early January. In March 2021, Thomas claimed The Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass to push his PGA Tour victory total to 14. During his collegiate days at the University of Alabama, he won the 2012 Haskins Award, given annually to the country's top golfer, and helped the the Crimson Tide 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. He was a member of the victorious 2017 and 2019 U.S. Presidents Cup Teams, and represented his country in the 2018 and 2021 Ryder Cup Matches. As a junior, he was the runner-up in the 2010 U.S. Junior Amateur to Jim Liu.
