Justin Thomas on Rory McIlroy: People should look up to someone like him

Justin Thomas has decided to support Rory McIlroy who has come to the defense of the PGA Tour although he has stated that he understands the players competing in the LIV Golf, he also believes the PGA made a good decision because he banned them.

“There’s nobody that, I think, acts better, acts more humble and more grounded for what they’ve done and who they are than him,” said Thomas for skysports.

“I would hope [the guys look up to him]. I know he’s accomplished a lot more than I have. He’s been out here longer. He’s been more successful.

Justin Thomas: People should look up to someone like him

McIlroy has shown many times how great a person he is, and Thomas only confirmed this with the following statement:

“I remember being a rookie and moving down to Jupiter, and he was out at Bear’s Club. Being the person I am, wanting to learn, going up to him and saying, hey, I’d love to play sometime, introduced myself, and he’s like, any time, and gave me his number, and we kind of hit it off. We’re very similar personalities.

“For me, I definitely think that other people should look up to someone like him. I do in some aspects. There’s definitely other parts that he’s still a competitor and someone that I’m trying to beat, but there’s still a lot of things that as a leader that he does really well, and I think that he’s very honest, like I am.

He believes McIlroy did everything to make the PGA Tour progress.

“I’m not going to sit in here and feed a PC answer or just say something to maybe please a certain crowd. If you feel a certain way, you feel like you should say that.

“That’s what he does, and he does it for the best reasons and hopes that it’s going to be the best for the PGA Tour.”
