08/13/2017 08:10 PM

Sunday will be a day Justin Thomas will never forget.

The 24-year-old Goshen, Ky. native won his first career major championship title on Sunday, taking home the Wanamaker Trophy.

Thomas won the 2017 PGA Championship with a score of -8 for the tournament, beating his closest competitors (Francesco Molinari, Patrick Reed and Louis Oosthuizen) by two strokes.

It was Thomas’ fourth PGA Tour win of the season and his ninth “Top 10” finish on Tour this year, which is tied for the most with Rickie Fowler.

Thomas’ previous best finish in the PGA Championship was a tie for 18th at the 2015 PGA Championship.
