Thomas fills hole in resume with first WGC win

AKRON, Ohio – A light rain was falling when Justin Thomas headed out for a practice round on Tuesday at Firestone.

A two-time winner this season on the PGA Tour and a lock to don the red, white and blue later this year at the Ryder Cup, this was hardly a lost season. Yet, as Thomas made his way around the South Course he had something to say.

His game had been solid this summer, but the results had proven to be elusive, with just a single top-10 finish since March. This was more than just another practice round, this was an intervention.

“We sat down and just said, what are we doing wrong? What can we do better?” recalled Thomas’ father and swing coach, Mike. “He initiated it, he said this what he wanted to do. I told him, that’s really mature of you. When I was 25 years old I wouldn’t have done that.”

The impromptu meeting was much more than simply a pep talk, the reigning PGA Tour player of the year doesn’t need that. This was an unfiltered talk about what Team Thomas needed to do better.
