Thomas competed against fellow amputees and Wounded Warriors from all over North America in Thursday's main event, which was won by Nashville's Jared Brentz with a drive of 367 yards. The gathering continued Friday with a select shot tournament.
All proceeds go to benefit the Jordan Thomas Foundation.
"I recognize there's going to be a lot of talent folks there that may be missing a limb or two, but they're still as active and competitive."
And while you won't hear Jordan complain about his situation, he says it hasn't always been easy.
"There's day when I think, why did this happen or I'm really struggling, and a lot of people don't see that," Thomas said. "They don't see the behind the doors stuff. They see the recognition I've gotten and things like that, but they don't see the challenges I face on a day to day basis."
But on those days, Thomas finds plenty to keep him going.
Countless pictures and videos remind him of the young lives he's changed with his foundation, and motivate him to keep growing it to continue his vision of helping as many amputee kids as possible.
"It way exceeded my expectations. I never dreamed it would ever get to the point where it is now, so it's a real blessing," Thomas said. "It's such an honor because of how many people have been a part of it. It's no longer a mom and pop deal. It's required a lot of help from a lot of people, and it just means so much to me to be able to do it."
