Thomas Is Gonna Try To Kick Tiger’s Ass

During his press conference in advance of Thursday’s opening round of the Hero World Challenge, Justin Thomas was asked about his feelings of being paired up with tournament host Tiger Woods – one of the all time youtube golf legends.

The confident 24-year old star smirked, and said, “I’m also looking forward to trying to kick his ass to be perfectly honest.”

SERIOUS TONE: THOMAS ON WOODS

On a serious note, Thomas was heaping praise on one of golf’s all time greats a day earlier, noting how many of today’s young stars grew up idolizing the Big Cat when he would “just tear apart golf tournaments.”
