The opportunity to coach and collaborate with some of the best young talent in the United States is equally unique and a chance I'm looking forward to as much as the competition.

I'm so excited to just play a small part in growing the game around the globe." Thomson was named a Second Team Rolex Junior All American for the 2015 AJGA season.
