Justin Thomas' father addresses rumour about his son on eve of Ryder Cup

Justin Thomas was rumoured to have restricted the role of his father and sacked his putting coach on the eve of the Ryder Cup. 

But according to the man himself, that is 'just stupid' and 'ridiculous'. 

Mike Thomas told Golf Digest if that was the case then it was news to him - and he still wouldn't have a problem with it. 

He reportedly laughed at the reporting that initially came from Golf Channel's Todd Lewis. 

JT's dad told the publication:

"You're kidding. That's just stupid. 
"That's what some people in the media do. It's ridiculous. I just left Justin. We worked all morning.
"But, listen, if he did fire me, and it was for the better, then what's the problem? I guess they have to have something to talk about."

The older Thomas did confirm to the publication that the pair have opted for less one-on-one coaching sessions this year. 

But that changed during May as JT has sought to implement swing changes. 

It does appear that Thomas in all likelihood has parted ways with his putting coach John Graham as his father refused to comment on that rumour. 

The duo allegedly split after Thomas missed the cut at the 151st Open at Royal Liverpool and admitted he was all at sea with his game. 

The 15-time PGA Tour winner and two-times major champion was selected as a captain's pick by Zach Johnson for the forthcoming Ryder Cup

Despite boasting a stellar record in the contest, JT admitted that he was fortunate to be selected. 

GolfMagic have already broken down whether Johnson has picked his strongest side.

As for Thomas, he appears to be extremely hard on figuring out his golf swing:
