Justin Thomas is one of the best golfers on the planet. The 27-year-old right-hander consistently ranked inside the top-five of the world rankings is always near the top of leaderboards during majors and captured his first (and only) at the 2017 PGA Championship.
Despite being relatively young, the budding star has won 13 PGA Tour tournaments, including the FedEx Cup in which he took home a ridiculous $10 million.
Since turning pro in 2013, Thomas has earned a whopping $40 million on the PGA Tour, according to ESPN.
Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, Justin Louis Thomas learned the game from his father Mike Thomas before quickly becoming a star golfer at St. Xavier High School. He played in a PGA Tour event, the Wyndham Championship, in 2009 as a 16-year-old.
Thomas continued sinking putts and scoring birdies for the University of Alabama Crimson Tide. He won the Haskins Award and the 2013 national championship while in Tuscaloosa.
Considering his success, it’s no surprise the 2017 PGA Tour Player of the Year is taken.
Who is Justin Thomas’ Girlfriend Jillian Wisniewski?
Justin Thomas is dating a woman by the name of Jillian Wisniewski.
Wisniewski have reportedly been together since 2016 and she lives in Chicago, according to Golf Monthly.
Per her LinkedIn profile, Wisniewski is much more than the girlfriend of a professional golfer who fans see on social media. She’s a senior production business manager at advertising agency McGarryBowen and graduated from the University of Kentucky with a degree in journalism.
She Nearly Missed His First Major Win
Back in 2017, the biggest year of Thomas’ career, Wisniewski almost missed watching her boyfriend lift up the Wanamaker Trophy at the PGA Championship.
She was scheduled to get in to the Quail Hollow Golf Club in Charlotte, North Carolina, but she hopped on an earlier flight after Thomas told her he was confident he was going to win the tournament in the final round.
“I truly felt like I was going to win. I remember my girlfriend was supposed to fly out at about 7 p.m. and I was like, you need to change your flight to later, I just feel like I don’t want you to miss this. I feel like I’m going to get it done,” he said, according to the U.S. Sun.Advertisement
Whether it’s the first round of the U.S. Open, in the fairway at the Presidents Cup, a singles match at the Ryder Cup in France, The Masters at Augusta inn Georgia, a playoff or THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass, it’s clear Wisniewski will always be Justin’s No. 1 fan on and off the golf course.
As the golfing star competes against Brooks Koepka, Dustin Johnson, Tiger Woods, Jordan Spieth, Collin Morikawa, Lee Westwood, Patrick Reed, Phil Mickelson, Rickie Fowler, Bryson DeChambeau and Rory McIlroy in tournaments in the United States and abroad, it’s time we get to know the woman behind the world number three golfer with a growing net worth.
