Justin Thomas Quotes

Justin Louis ThomasJustin Thomas quotes: on being a fierce competitor, how to hit the ball farther, splurging after big paydays, and so on.

“I feel like the sky’s the limit. I can do a lot of great things but none of them will happen if I don’t continue to work hard.”

“My attitude is good because I’m a fierce competitor and I have all the confidence in the world that I can beat everybody else. That’s my attitude.”

“The biggest thing is confidence; I’ve a lot of belief in what I’m doing.”

“I’ve always had the highest expectations for myself and expect to be the best at what I do.”

“I’m sort of a needler, sarcastic and sometimes relentless. It’s just the way I roll.”

“And I think the most important thing is I never am or at least I hope to never be disrespectful.”

“I think there’s a very fine line on guys saying stuff because you don’t want to be disrespectful. That’s not the point of it. But you also do need to… there’s nothing wrong with saying what’s on your mind.”

“The main thing is to try and stay positive and patient.”

“I wished that I would have learned patience because if I were to know what I know now, I could have been even more successful.”

“Be able to incorporate patience in helping you become who you want to be. Through the ups and downs you must use it to be able to recoup after a downfall and find out what ways you must improve and how you’re going to do it.”

“Social media is fun to do and I enjoy showing people what we like to do. I think it’s so cool that people are interested in me, so I try to have fun and connect with the people who respond to the things I post on media like Instagram and Snapchat.”

“My dad and grandpa were big golfers, and I think any boy wants to be like their dad. So growing up around him being at the golf course, it was an easy choice for me.”

“That’s what everybody remembers, the first time they beat their dad.”

“My dad has been a big influence on my career: he’s been my role model and coach my whole life and to have him there during this whole process has been really cool. My grandpa has been a big influence, too.”

“So much of my life I’ve dedicated to golf, aspiring to win my first major championship. To be able to do so aged 24 is awesome.”

“I got very fortunate, but I also stuck to my process and tried to stay positive.”

“It doesn’t matter how close I am with someone, I want to beat them so bad that they want to quit golf.”

“I won’t play an 18-hole practice round unless I’m playing for something. That goes for when I’m at home, too. It doesn’t have to be for much, but it has to be for something because I want to hit every shot like it matters. I’m out here to beat everybody. That’s what I’m tying to do.”

“Anybody can win in any given week. The thing is we’re all hungry, and we’re all ready. Not only that, we’re pretty good, too, which is definitely a major factor. And we don’t have much fear. We expect to play well and have a chance to win and when we’re in contention, we’re aggressive and ready to go for it.”

“[On being ranked #1] It’s never something that I won’t want to have and won’t be trying to get to if I’m not there. The thing about that is it’s not about getting there, it’s about how long can you stay there? There’s only a small amount of people who have held it for a long amount of time, and that’s what I’m trying to do.”

“I had the confidence that 
I could do it in the past. I just didn’t necessarily have the resume to go with it. But now I guess maybe I could have a little bit more swag when I’m walking out there. When you’re playing against somebody, and they’re slumping their shoulders and they look exhausted, you’re like, ‘Hey, I can beat this guy.'”

“I still felt pretty confident early in my career that I could play out here with these guys. The biggest thing is the belief that I can get it done.”

“I expect to at least have a chance to win. I expect that if I put in the proper preparation, then I should be able to at least get around the course well enough to be in the hunt and have a chance to make a run on Saturday to get in contention.”

“Golf taught me a plethora of important life skills, built character, and taught me that to be able to get good at something you must practice.”

“I haven’t always been someone who loves to work out. Now, it’s part of my life, part of my daily routine. I hooked up with a trainer and we really worked on getting stronger, and we were always working on core and flexibility, which is so important in golf and for preventing injuries. My body really, really felt great last year. I ended up adding a good 15 lbs to my frame.”

“I’ve made sure to train smarter, and not overdo it with big weights when I don’t need it. My body feels better than ever before, and that gave me a lot of confidence stepping up to the tee. My training is something I take very seriously, and I’ll continue to take seriously.”

“The biggest thing, and nobody is going to want to hear this, but for a regular amateur, honestly doing yoga or something like that could be way more beneficial than going and lifting weights. You could have as big an upper body as you want, but if your hips are tight and your hamstrings are tight and you don’t have a good core, you’re not going to be able to use that strength well. That’s where you’re going to get your strength and power. That’s how people with small frames hit it as far as they do. Look at guys like Rickie Fowler—Rickie is stronger than I am, and he’s a tiny guy, but he’s very flexible and he’s very mobile, and that’s how we both get the most out of what we have.”

“All I can do is get myself as prepared as possible and try and play the best I can. You just don’t know what’s going to happen, but I’m just going to continue to work hard, and see what we can do.”

“I used to not be as good at taking time off and hanging the clubs up.”

“I just feel like it’s very, very important to reward yourself when do you something well or you accomplish something because you did something good. You deserve it.”

“Yeah, I’ve always been someone to celebrate a win, whether it’s enjoying it with people or doing something or buying myself something that I wouldn’t buy myself.”

“Every time I finish in the top 10, I go to the mall. We have a really sick mall here in Palm Beach, Florida, with a lot of high-end stores. I’ll go in there and impulse buy for a couple of hours.”

“I don’t spend a lot of money or buy a lot of things. I’m not a car guy, and I don’t need a boat or a Jet Ski.”

“It’s a lot harder to rack up a big bill on clothes and shoes than on boats and cars.”

“It’s the greatest job in the world and I’m very lucky with the places we get to travel and see, plus the friendships we make along with the memories and good times we have out here on Tour. It’s something you can’t describe and I’m very fortunate to get to experience it.”

“I love me some me!”
