Former University of Alabama golfer
Justin Thomas wins again as he takes the
SBS Tournament of Champions for his third PGA Tour title
Former University of Alabama golfer Justin
Thomas is really making a name for himself in the
professional game, as his win Sunday in the select-
field SBS Tournament of Champions at Kapalua in
Maui, Hi. further cemented his standing.
He has now ascended to the 12th-ranked player
in the world and is a threat to win whenever he
tees it up. With three PGA Tour wins in the last 16
months and a power-packed game, the sky seems
to be the limit.
Thomas' Alabama career was highlighted by
being honored with the 2012 Haskins Award and
the Nicklaus Award, presented to the National
Player of the Year. He was also honored with the
Phil Mickelson Award, as the National Freshman
of the Year, that same season, becoming the first
Alabama player to capture those honors.
He helped lead Alabama to the 2013 National
Championship, won his first collegiate event and
never looked back, garnering a school-record
four medalists honors and nine top-10 finishes
that season. He turned pro after two years at UA
and played the 2014 season on the Web.com Tour,
graduating to the PGA Tour in 2015, where he
firmly established himself as a regular contender.
The 23-year-old hails from Goshen, Ky., where
he grew up in the game under the watchful eye of
his father, Mike, a long-time PGA club professional.
And his grandfather Paul Thomas has been a club
professional for over 50 years. Needless to say, he
has great respect for the game and an incredibly
bright future among the best in the world.
His first two PGA Tour wins also came a long way
from home (he now lives in Jupiter, Fla.) at the
CIMB Classic in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, as he has
won the last two playings of this PGA Tour event
co-sanctioned with the Asian Tour.
