Thomas Ready to Return to Golf
Former Alabama golfer and PGA player Justin Thomas is tired of sitting around. It has been nine weeks since the golf world has had an event and will be four more weeks until the next PGA Tour event. Thomas recently told Bob Harig of ESPN that he would be comfortable starting back next week.
"I'm 120% comfortable and confident. I'd start next week if I could.... I know the tour is not going to let us start and would not be running tournaments if they didn't think it was safe and smart....It's unbelievable the work they have put into all of these plans and thought processes," said Thomas.
Thomas has the support of four time major winner, Brooks Koepka and tour player Max Homa.
The next PGA Tour event will be the Charles Swab Challenge at Colonial Country Club in Fort Worth, Texas from June 11-14. The tournament director Michael Tothe was excited to be the event that restarted the golf season.
"We're working hard to make sure that all the safety protocols are in place for when we return to golf. We're really excited about launching the PGA Tour calendar and being back at it. We're working day and night, hand in hand with the PGA Tour and Charles Schwab to ensure everyone on property is safe and sound in these times," said Tothe.
In the meantime we have a few private matches to enjoy until the entire field is back in action. This Sunday there be the TaylorMade Driving Relief Match between teams of Dustin Johnson and Rory Mcilroy vs. Rickie Fowler and Matthew Wolfe at Seminole Golf Club in Juno Beach, Florida. The following Sunday will be Capital One's "The Match: Champions for Charity" with teams of Tiger Woods and Peyton Manning vs Phil Mickleson and Tom Brady at the Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Florida.
