The American Justin Thomas is the new world number 1 golf.
A title deserved, thanks to its 11th place in the Players Championship, Sunday in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.
Originally from Kentucky, the golfer started the week in 2nd place worldwide. He was part of a group of four players competing to dislodge Johnson from first place.
It’s done today. With his eleventh place in the Payers Championship, Thomas dislodges world No. 1 compatriot Dustin Johnson.
Indeed, Dustin Johnson has spent nearly 2 years in the throne of World No.1 since taking office in February 2017.
According to the results of the latest golf classification, Thomas is the 21st world No.1 since the introduction of the ranking in 1986.
In February, he won the Honda Classic, his 8th title on the North American Professional Golf Course (PGA).
In their various performances, Thomas chained cards of 68 (-4) and 66 (-6) Saturday and Sunday for a total of 277 (-11).
Johnson, the former number 1 still champion a few days ago, has meanwhile achieved a performance (278, -10).
According to AFP, he started the year 2018 by winning the Tournament of Champions, but he had to settle for 10th place in the Masters, the first Grand Slam tournament of the year.
