Rayhan Thomas: Beyond the birdie blitz
Rayhan Thomas announced his arrival to the golfing world recently with nine birdies in a row, his eyes are now set on the first tee at the Masters
Rayhan Thomas, born on 14 November 1999, was still a babe in arms when Tiger Woods enjoyed the sort of season that golf might never see again. Having finished fifth at the US Masters in Augusta in April 2000, he won the US Open by 15 strokes, and the British Open by eight, before clinching the PGA championship in a three-hole play-off. Thomas never watched Woods at his peak. By the time he got into the sport, the winner of 14 majors was on a downward spiral that culminated in a car being driven into a fire hydrant and a carefully constructed reputation destroyed.
