Two time PGA Championship winner Justin Thomas recently returned home to Louisville for his Justin Thomas Foundation junior golf tournament at Harmony Landing. Thomas also appeared at the home of Valhalla co-owner Jimmy Kirchdorfer to preview the 2024 PGA Championship to be held at the iconic Louisville course. In a freewheeling interview in front of about 100 guests, Justin and Jimmy touched on the professional golfer's ongoing dedication to Saint Xavier High School. Thomas is a 2011 graduate of the highly acclaimed Catholic high school. School officials had to be thrilled with the words Thomas rolled out in praise of his alma mater. “I’d do anything to have a week back at St. X…it got me prepared for a great place in life.”

PGA star Justin Thomas aces the philanthropy challenge with his new foundation to assist needy children, junior golf, and military families
Louisville’s first family of golf launched the Justin Thomas Foundation to help needy children, junior golf programs, and military families. 🏌🏾♂️⛳️ The great ones never forget their hometown. 🏆 Great to chat with Justin again.

Campbellsville native Holmes beat Goshen's JT by one stroke. JB takes a lot of flak for his slow play. Justin was miffed that he let the final round slip away but enjoyed seeing JB win. We're Kentuckians. Ain't no hate. How are you other 49 states doing tonight? Well... not exactly what we had in mind on the 4th round! Extremely difficult conditions I just flat out didn’t handle well enough with the wind on the greens. We will be better in the future Bc of days
