After the race, Thornton Jr. attempted to split the lap cars in front of him. But Carpenter did not let Thornton Jr box him in.

He was then overtaken by Brandon Sheppard and David Webster.
Despite his recent success, Thornton still needs a lot of work to improve his golf game. Thornton is the third-most successful player in the history of the World of Tour. He has a net worth of around $3 million. While his net worth may be on the rise, his career has largely taken off. His recent success in the Masters has earned him much praise from both fans and the media.
