Reached world No. 1 in 2018 after seven victories in two years, including his first major at the 2017 PGA Championship.
A runner-up finish at the Tour Championship a month later made him the $10million winner of the FedEx Cup play-off series and in 2018 he also achieved a 59 with an eagle on the final hole of his opening round at the Sony Open, which he went on to win by seven.
A 63 at the U.S. Open, completed with another eagle, equalled the then major record and was the first nine under par round in the event’s history. Thomas then achieved his first World Golf Championships success at the 2018 Bridgestone Invitational and when he added the 2020 WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational he returned to world No. 1.
He first made a PGA Tour halfway cut at 16, and captured the Jack Nicklaus Award as America’s top college player.
Thomas made his Ryder Cup debut in 2018, top-scoring for Jim Furyk’s well-beaten side with four wins out of five, including the top singles over Rory McIlroy. He was also their top-scorer in the Presidents Cup win in December 2019 during a purple patch of three titles in seven starts, including the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.
He returned to centre stage in March with victory at the Players Championship, where he finished 64-68 to take the title.
