Justin Thomas became a major champion in August with his victory at Quail Hollow Club in the PGA Championship.

He's still going strong, having won his fifth tournament of the season on Monday at TPC Boston in the Dell Technologies Championship, the second leg of the PGA Tour Playoffs for the FedExCup.

With a week off on the playoff schedule, Thomas had time to sneak home. And, when he arrived, there was a pretty sweet gift waiting from 2014 U.S. Women's Open Champion Michelle Wie, a good friend of Thomas.

Wie had a pair of red, white and blue sneakers made by Nike, emblazoned with "Major Champ" on the back sent to Thomas.

Very cool.
