On the face of it, it has been a broadly successful year for Justin Thomas.
The 25-year-old, still only five years into his professional career, won three times on the PGA Tour’s 2017/18 wraparound schedule, climbed (albeit briefly) to world No.1, and impressed on his Ryder Cup debut at Le Golf National last week.
However, judging by the list of goals he set at the start of the season and revealed today on Instagram, there’s still lots of room for improvement.
The American revealed he set himself 14 goals for the 2017/18 PGA Tour campaign… and he hit only half of them.
Amongst those he failed to achieve are making every cut, winning a major, defending one title from the previous season, and finishing in the top ten in at least half of his starts.
He also failed to reach his goal of having fewer than five double-bogeys or worse across the entire season (‘BIG N’), didn’t win the scoring average title, and failed to record a driving accuracy of 60% or better.
Still, the goals he hit are still pretty impressive!

Every year/season my team and I come up with goals for the year... it’s something I’ve always found important. A few goals that are very attainable, some that are going to require some hard work, then some that are extremely difficult. I ask every person in my on course team (caddie, dad, putting coach), to make a their own list. This keeps us all accountable the entire year that everybody is doing what they should be doing on and off the course to make sure we are as ready as possible every time I tee it up. Time to get started on next years list! (And no I will not share it until the season is over 😜😜) I challenge you guys to make your own list of goals and see how many you can achieve!
