A look at the 13 PGA Tour wins for Justin Thomas


Justin Thomas has won 13 times during his PGA Tour career, most recently at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational in Memphis, his second WGC win.

Since 1960, only Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus reached 13 career wins at a younger age than Thomas.

Before hitting the top circuit, Thomas won the 2014 Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship on the now-Korn Ferry Tour in a playoff.

He has won a PGA Tour event every year since 2015, including three times during the 2019-20 season, which is a Tour-best. He is also one of two golfers to win this season before and after the 91-break for the global COVID-19 pandemic.
