The popular American is a multiple major championship winner, but who is Justin Thomas’ coach? 

While many professionals look to seek advice from those outside their circle, Justin Thomas doesn’t look too far from home for his advice. 

Despite rumours of the pair splitting ahead of the 2023 Ryder Cup, Thomas has remained with his coach, and that man is his father, Mike Thomas. 

The work they have done together has established Thomas as one of the best and most recognised players on the PGA Tour. 

Justin Thomas’ coach Mike Thomas 

With over a dozen wins on the American circuit, Thomas has gone every step of the way with his father by his side.  

Mike Thomas is also a PGA professional and has been coached his son Justin since the now world-class golfer was a junior. 

It comes as no surprise, as the Thomas family is full of golf talent. Mike Thomas himself is the son of a PGA professional, Paul Thomas, who was also a teaching pro. 

While reports suggested the duo had ended their working relationship in September 2023, Mike declared that inaccurate. 

• Who is the caddie for Justin Thomas?

• Who is the coach of Jordan Spieth?

He said: “That’s just stupid. It’s ridiculous. I just left Justin. We worked all morning.” Mike added that Justin sends him swing videos every night.  

Predominantly, Mike has coached Justin Thomas in his long game, however he has worked with other coaches on his short game. 

Justin Thomas has worked with John Graham on his putting, as well as Matt Killen, both of whom have aimed to help with his flatstick. 

But Thomas dumped Graham from his coaching team after adopting the Aim Point approach to putting. 

It was reported by Todd Lewis that Thomas wanted to figure out his putting by himself after a continued struggle on the greens in 2023.
