“He has matured a lot, but he was like that in every team event I’ve been with him," Davis Love III, a U.S team vice captain, recently said about Johnson.
"You tell him to do something, he’ll do something.  That’s being a leader. In 2016, on Friday, I called him and he hung up on me when I told him he was going to sit out [the next morning’s session], 
"But when I got to the team room he wanted to play ping-pong. He was the first guy in the car with me on Saturday morning to go to the course.”
Justin Thomas is the most decorated player in the history of CJ Open having won two titles.
