Justin Thomas emerged victorious on Sunday at the Honda Classic, defeating Luke List on the first playoff hole. It was Thomas’ eighth career PGA TOUR win, placing him an elite group.
Thomas will not turn 25 until the end of April. Over the last three decades, only two other golfers have won eight PGA TOUR events since turning 25. Thomas joined his buddy, Jordan Spieth, and the great, Tiger Woods.

Needless to say, Thomas is rubbing shoulders with some pretty impressive company.
Six of those wins have come since the beginning of 2017, including the 2017 PGA Championship. Thomas isn’t the top ranked golfer in the world. But it’s hard to imagine a much hotter golfer.
