    Great to see. I love it when studs win majors and he is the definition of a stud. Really cool to see Rickie and Jordan congratulating him after...especially Rickie as he was in the hunt and just came up short...today had to be painful for him as he was close and has still not won a major and it has to be tough to see his buddies winning them when he has not yet...total class act.

    Congratulations Justin. Wouldn't be surprised to see him continue to win, and win often.

    4th win this season, I think.

    Shot a 59, set the single-round major championship scoring record, won a major. In the player-of-the-year discussion at this point.

    He won the tourney at 17. Everyone was bailing right and two putting. He goes at the flag and birdies. Clutch and gutsy. He won teh tourney. Majors are much better when someone takes it, makes the shots, and it isn't choked to them.

    I only got to watch that hole on replay, did he really hit 7iron? I thought I read that this morning.

    That's what they said.

    Jeez, I'd have had to hit a hybrid. His length is pretty amazing.

    I think on one hole he hit a 3 wood 320. I believe that is what I heard.

    Congratulations to Kentucky native and resident Justin Thomas.

    The theme of being the 'son of a PGA professional' was very reminiscent of Davis Love's win at the PGA and has to make that much more special for him and his family.

    Guilty of the following:
    When I coached high school golf, I would sneak away from my players to go watch him play a couple of holes.
    It was amazing how much more advanced he was than the other kids playing in the event.
