Over the course of Justin Thomas’ professional career, he has managed to rack up 14 PGA tour wins, 3 European tour wins, 2 Asian tour wins, and 1 Korn Ferry tour wins. The Korn Ferry tour is a professional golf tour one step under the PGA tour. This is where aspiring golfer go to battle in tournaments for a chance to win their PGA tour card at the end of every season, but only few get their cards. A few of Justin’s most notable wins are the 2017 PGA Championship, the 2021 Players Championship, the 2017 FedEx Cup, and not technically a PGA tour event, but he also was announced the PGA player of the year in 2017 after he won 5 tournaments that season. JT has also made history by being 1 of only 7 people on the PGA tour to ever shoot a round of 59 or better and is also tied for the record of shooting the lowest score in a Major tournament with the score of a 63. A score of 59 means that the player took only 59 strokes to finish an 18-hole match of golf. The courses on the PGA tour usually play anywhere from a par 70 to a par 72 and it just so happens that week the course was playing at a par 70 that week. This means that JT shot an amazing score of 11 under par.

Over the course of Justin’s career, he has countless hole-in-ones. So many hole-in-ones in fact that in a recent interview he mentioned that he has honestly lost count of how many he has made! Wouldn’t that be something that we would like to brag to our friends about. JT has hit some clutch shots throughout his career as a professional golfer, but none more clutch and luckier as his final tee shot of the 2021 Player’s Championship. Standing on the 18th tee box with a long dogleg left par 4 at the world renowned TPC Sawgrass golf course in front of him, JT was one up with only one more group behind him. He hooked his 3 wood around the bend in the fairway, landing it just 5 feet from the water hazard on the left. He would go on to make par while the other two players made bogey and won his first ever Player’s Championship.
