PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla., May 13 (Reuters) - Justin Thomas became golf’s new world number one on Sunday, ending fellow American Dustin Johnson’s 15-month reign.
“It means a lot, but it’s something I want to have for a long time, not something I just want to have once,” Thomas said at the Players Championship where he tied for 11th.
Thomas won his first major at the PGA Championship last August.
The 25-year-old has won eight times on the PGA Tour.
