Yesterday, 25-year-old Davis Thompson clinched his first-ever PGA Tour title at TPC Deere Run. Birdieing five of his first six holes en route to a final-round 64 – good for a John Deere Classic record 28-under-par – Thompson cemented himself as a capital-C Contender on tour. If you’re still unfamiliar with the young American, however, there’s only one thing you need to know:

The kid can ‘ball’.

By our count, this video makes Thompson the only other tour pro besides Tony Finau capable of throwing down. Both are 6-foot-4 (193 centimetres), so that certainly helps, but Thompson’s overall game is pretty complete, knocking down long-range jumpers in attack and picking pockets in defence.

The ”Are golfers athletes?” debate shows no signs of abating, but with Thompson rattling rims and firing at pins, it appears he’ll be valuable asset for Team Golf for years to come.
