As a child, at the end of every training session, Justin and his dad used to bet $ 1 on the last fight of the day. One of Thomas’s most memorable memories is at Valhalla when J.B. Holmes won a win for the US team after the 17th green. Since his father was on the board of the USA PGA, Thomas was allowed to hang out with all the golfers that week.
