Justin Thomas will make his debut as an on-course analyst during Sunday’s The Match: Champions for Charity event the Medalist Golf Club.
In a high-profiled match, Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson will be joined by NFL stars Peyton Manning and Tom Brady to raise funds for charity in aid of Covid-19 relief.
Thomas’ involvement will certainly add to the excitement of the event after more than two months off the course due to the coronavirus.
‘We’ll have some fun and jaw at each other. I know if they don’t, I will. I can’t be on a golf course for 18 holes around four competitors like that and not talk trash,’ Thomas told Golfweek.
‘I’m obviously not going to say anything bad or controversial, but you can’t put me on a golf course for that long and expect me to keep my mouth shut.’
The World No 4 admitted he was a bit surprised when he was asked to get involved but saw it as a great opportunity to share the experience with the four sports legends.
‘I thought it was weird at first, because I’m in the beginning of my career and I’m not trying to start a broadcasting career. I keep joking with my parents that we’re going to see how that communications major work I had at Alabama paid off those two years I was in school,’ said Thomas.
