Not a bad little jump in the world rankings for PGA Tour rookie Justin Thomas. A year ago at the conclusion of the Humana, Thomas was honing his game on the Web.com Tour, ranked 1,073rd in the Official World Golf Ranking.
Since then, the kid from Kentucky has polished off a successful training season on the Web.com Tour, earned his PGA Tour card and posted top 10s in two of his past three starts early in the 2014-15 season.
In his past three tournaments – Sanderson Farms Championship, OHL Classic at Mayakoba and Sony Open in Hawaii – Thomas is a whopping 34 under, with eight of 12 rounds in the 60s.
Oh, and he’s 107th in the OWGR.
