Justin Thomas’s latest input of OWGR points matter

The new system of awarding OWGR points has been in question ever since its launch. As per this system, it has been pointed out that the chances of international players coming into the big picture get thinner. This is because the points awarded for events like the Hero World Challenge are much more than that awarded at other Asian events.

This could potentially result in an inherent inequality in the system, according to many people online. However, Justin Thomas refuses to believe so.

He defended the stance saying that the number of points is directly proportional to the quality of the field which is higher in the case of the aforementioned. According to JT, it is, hence, justified.

However, fans did not stop there. Thomas was questioned about what he thinks of LIV golfers getting world ranking points in that case.

To this, he said, “I have no problem… they just need to meet the criteria. But they don’t in 7 of the 8 categories. Every tour went thru the 2-3 year process to earn OWGR pts, no reason they shouldn’t be different right?”

Thomas, hence, made sure to put his point forth on the burning issue. He talked about how LIV players should follow the same procedure that was to be followed by every other tour. He also pointed out how that has not been fulfilled as of now.
