Former Tiger Justin Thomas is a great golfer, and the national media is paying more and more attention to Thomas and his success on the links. Thomas is currently ranked 37th in the world and 5th on the PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup points race. Wednesday, PGA.com wrote a piece on Thomas and how he grew up in a golf family.

With the PGA of America kicking off the celebration of its Centennial year at the PGA Merchandise Show, a lot of the talk this week is of the men, women and families that have lived the game down through the years.
Among the more prominent golf clans at the Show is the Thomas family of Kentucky. Longtime PGA Professional Paul Thomas, now 84, is back home this week, but his son Mike, the head professional at Harmony Landing Golf Club in Goshen, Kentucky, and Mike’s 22-year-old son Justin were on hand Wednesday morning to take part in Titleist’s kickoff program.
Another update on Thomas real quick. Justin Thomas is now the first PGA Tour Player that has signed with GoPro.
“As an avid social media user I have always been a fan of GoPro content and can’t wait to capture and share moments of my life with my social following through a GoPro lens,” Justin says. “As a Tour player we get to travel the world and see and do some amazing things. Not only will I be capturing my own photos and videos, I will also be collaborating with the team at GoPro to create some new and unique golf content.”
