Justin Thomas returns to the putter he has used since he was a child

The defending PGA champion hasn’t played this type of club in about 10 years.

Justin Thomas takes his tried and tested “back to basics” strategy to the next level this week at the Sentry of Champions Tournament in Hawai`i.

At the first PGA Tour event of the calendar year, it’s common to see players using the latest gear in their pockets for the week. However, Thomas is updating his not-so-new and shiny club squad.

This week, the defending PGA champion will reunite with his Scotty Cameron Newport Circle T, whom he apparently played for the first time during his college golf years. The last time Thomas used a putter to play was in college. The Kentucky native played for the University of Alabama until he turned pro after his sophomore year in 2013.

“I like to book with”. “Then why hit him?” Thomas said. The two-time major champion previously used the Scotty Cameron Phantom T5 prototype on the green, which looks quite different from his college weapon. Thomas’s typical putter has a winged mallet design, while the one he’ll be using at Kapalua has the slim, classic look of a racquet.

This means that Thomas, the eighth player in the world, will use a putter that hasn’t been played in nearly 10 years this week.

Thomas continued: “I travel a lot with this cane. “I’ve taken it to tournaments without actually using it, but it’s great for practice.”

You know what they say: if it works, it works.

Thomas will be leaving for the Crop Course at 5:45pm. ET is with Xander Schauffele.
