Golf fans react to Justin Thomas' GENEROUS GESTURE to tour player Mike Visacki

PGA Tour player Michael Visacki has endeared himself to the golf world this season and now Justin Thomas has given him another big break.

According to Rick Gehman, the founder of RickRunGood.com and the host of the First Cut Podcast, Thomas has given Visacki a chunk of his own money to allow the American to pursue his career on the PGA Tour and play at more events.

At the end of April, Visacki gained thousands of new fans when he was filmed ringing his dad to tell him that he had qualified for the Valspar Championship, which was won by Sam Burns.

Unfortunately for Visacki, he missed the cut at the Copperhead Course on 3-over-par. Visacki was also given an exemption for the Charles Schwab Challenge this week after he received a phone call from Mr Schwab himself. 

Visacki is a popular figure on the PGA Tour and he has clearly left his mark on many of the players, as Thomas has shown that he is willing to offer him help to have more opportunities.
