In case you haven’t been paying attention to golf since the Ryder Cup, let me tell you a little bit about this Justin Thomas fella. The 23-year-old has won three times this campaign, highlighted by a 59 at the Sony Open. He’s ranks first in birdie average, already pulled in $3.8 million on the season and bought a custom Range Rover.
But don’t take our word. Here’s Thomas putting that excellence on display during the first round of the WGC-Mexico Championship, knocking in a punch shot from 100 yards out.

The MJ shoulder shrug could use a little work. Not that he’s feigning it. Rather, when you’re operating on such a supernatural plane, you start to expect the unexpected.
