How impressive is Justin Thomas. In a very short period this young man has risen to the top. He only joined the PGA Tour in 2015. OK, let me say this again! Joined the PGA tour in 2015 and he is currently ranked number 4 in the World! WHAT!

Justin is the Son of Mike Thomas, PGA Professional at Harmony Landing. Justin’s Grandfather was a 60 year Member of the PGA of America. The current PGA champion is making a very big name for himself. With two tournaments still left in the FedExCup I think he has already rapped up the Player of the Year award for 2017. The only person standing in his way is his friend, Jordan Spieth. If Jordan wins the last two tournaments it would be tough not to give Spieth the award.

It has been a while since I have enjoyed the excitement of the PGA Tour. The next two events are going to be incredible. 14 – 17 September is the BMW Championship and the week after that is the Tour Championship.

I cannot wait to see it all play out!
