Justin Thomas surprised a young autograph seeker named Eidan Jamzidi during a practice round ahead of the 2018 CIMB Classic.
Eidan, one of Malaysia’s top junior golfers, who’s a member at TPC Kuala Lumpur, was asked join the American superstar for a few swings.
During the clip, Thomas – well aware of Eidan’s talent, jokes with him about selling his autograph on Ebay, saying, “I can tell you’re going to be good.” JT then wishes him well, saying, “It was nice to meet you, buddy. We’ll see you on Tour in a couple of years?”
Commenters gave JT all kinds of thumbs up and hearts, along with claps, thanks, and fist bumps, among other emojis, for the “class act.”
