Justin Thomas is one of the most loyal players on the PGA Tour. The golfer has been fully against the idea of shifting to the new Saudi-backed league. He also commented on the players who joined the LIV Golf league and said he was unhappy with their decision. However, proving his loyalty to the former tour once again, Thomas shared his annual report card on Instagram on completing eight years with PGA.

All athletes have set goals for themselves, including the ones that they are unlikely to achieve. But only a few players share those goals with their fans. And Justin Thomas is now among those few after he recently shared a list of goals he had set for himself for the past year.

The note contained several targets that the player wanted to achieve. He posted a screenshot of them on his Instagram profile after completing 8 years on the PGA Tour. The first one on his list was Make Tour Championship and the golfer successfully made it to the tournament. Next up was making it to the Presidents Cup team, which was another goal in which the golfer succeeded.

However, there were a few disappointments along the way for JT as mentioned in his list. He wanted to make it to World No. 1 this year, but unfortunately, couldn’t take that away from Scottie Scheffler. He also wanted to win four tournaments in the past year, but couldn’t achieve that goal too. But there were more “tick marks” than ‘cancel’ emojis in the list of goals that Thomas shared.

Thomas’ take on the LIV Golf players being disallowed to play the in FedEx Cup Playoffs

The LIV Golf players were recently denied to participate in the FedEx Cup Playoffs after the court’s ruling. Justin Thomas was happy with the decision of the court and used an amusing analogy about the situation. He said“You can have your cake, but you don’t need to eat it, too…And they got their fair share of a large, large amount of cake and go eat it on your own means. You don’t need to bring it onto our tour.”

The way Thomas referred to the PGA Tour as ‘our tour’ gave away his loyalty toward PGA. However, many players who claimed to stick to the PGA Tour for life have now transitioned to LIV Golf for personal reasons. But the chances of Thomas shifting to LIV Golf, as of now, remain pretty slim.
