Roll of Honour

Walker Cup player (2013). Multiple wins on the US PGA Tour. Youngest of the seven players to shoot a round of 59 on the PGA Tour.


Did you know?

During a highly successful amateur career, Thomas became a leading member of the Crimson Tide (University of Alabama golf team). As a university freshman in 2012, he won the coveted Haskins Award as the most outstanding collegiate golfer in the USA.

After turning professional in 2013 and playing on the Web.com Tour, Thomas moved up to the full PGA Tour in 2015. In November of that year, playing in the CIMB Classic in Malaysia, he recorded his first PGA Tour win. A successful defence of that title was made in 2016, before Thomas really hit the headlines by winning both PGA Tour events in Hawaii in January 2017. At the second of his back-to-back Hawaiian wins, the 23-year-old Kentuckian became the youngest of an elite group of seven players who had recorded a round of 59 on the PGA Tour.
