Justin Thomas has been the hottest golfer on the planet for the last month! His win last week at the Sony Open in Hawaii and the week before that at the SBS Tournament of Champions saw him collect $2.3 million ($3 million AUD) for the last two weeks alone! Like any lad, first stop for Thomas was to drop a little cash like any 23 year old baller does. With a brand new custom Range Rover!!
With record breaking scores at the Sony Open, with an opening round 59. Becoming only the 7th player in PGA tour history to achieve such a feat, Thomas is fast becoming a favourite for the first major of the year, The Masters. I would suggest his good buddy Jordan Speith and he will go in as close bookie favourites, behind the likes of Dustin Johnson and Rory Mcilroy.
Just to show you how good a two weeks Thomas has had, heres a breakdown for you!

If you then go on to add his win at the CIMB Classic early this year where he took home another $1.6 million to the pile you can see this young 23 year old is not short of any cash. Then go an add the sponsors dollars from Ralph Lauren and Titleist and you can see why pro golfers are buying $14 million homes by the the time they are 25!!
