Former St. X golfer Thomas impressing at PGA tournament

Posted: Updated:

Former St. Xavier high school golfer Justin Thomas is used to seeing his name on a leaderboard.  But this weekend, it carries a bit more weight than usual.

At just 19-years old, Thomas is tied for 26th going into the final day at the PGA Greenbrier Classic.

The sophomore-to-be at Alabama told GolfWeek.com, "The afternoon is usually harder, so hopefully I can play well tomorrow. I wasn't very nervous. I felt comfortable out there. That was kind of surprising, and it was a cool feeling."

Thomas is 6-under par, eight shots behind leader Webb Simpson.  The Greenbrier Classic is Thomas' second career PGA event.  In 2009, at just 16-years old, Thomas became the third-youngest player to ever make the cut at a PGA event when he played in the Wyndham Championship in 2009.

The Alabama sophomore won the SEC title as a true freshman.
