How he does it
It has been a career-best season for Justin Thomas with five victories, including his first major title at the PGA Championship. While much has been made about his game from tee-to-green, his incredible improvement on the greens should not be overlooked as playing a major role in his success. In 2016, he ranked 124th in the percentage of one-putts on the PGA Tour. The FedEx Cup Champion of 2017 ranked No.2 in the same category this year. Of the 1,422 holes he played in 2017, Thomas one-putted 43.67 percent of them – that’s 621 one-putts.
So it’s not surprising when you roll it that well you might rank second in birdies per round (4.48) and have a scoring average of 69.359. It might also explain why he won $9,921,560 and led the money list.
There’s nothing unorthodox about Thomas’ set-up and putting stroke. He’s technically rock solid and if there is one thing every amateur golfer should copy about this putting stroke it’s the position of his head, or more importantly, his eyes over the ball. If your eyes aren’t over the ball it compromises your ability to see the line of the putt.
