First- second- and third-round leader Justin Thomas spun a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in today's final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to finish off his third appearance on 27-under 253, good for a 7-shot win over Justin Rose, his fourth PGA TOUR title in his 74th career start (70 pro), and setting a new 72-hole aggregate scoring record on TOUR by one stroke.
The 23-year-old moved to a career-best 12th in OWGR with his 3-shot win last week at the SBS TOC, and bumps to No. 8 with his wire-to-wire masterpiece at Waialae CC -- the first player to complete the Aloha double since 2003 (Ernie Els). Along with his 3-shot win at the CIMB Classic (for back-to-back wins in Malaysia), this is his third win of the season in five starts and assumes the FedExCup lead. The Kentuckian, who led by 7 entering R4, opened the week with a hole-out eagle-2 en route to a course-record career-low 59 and chased with 64-65-65, setting or matching several records along the way. For the week, he tallied three eagles and 26 birdies versus five bogeys for 20.238 in SG: Total. Thomas has been tied or atop the leaderboard after each of the last seven rounds on TOUR.

First- and second-round leader Justin Thomas smoothed a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-31=65 in the third round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to post 22-under 188, good for a 7-shot lead over 2009 winner Zach Johnson, and matching the low 54-hole score in PGA TOUR history.

The World No. 12's 54-hole aggregate breaks down to a course-record 59, 64, and today's 65, tying Steve Stricker's 54-hole tally at the 2010 John Deere Classic. He began the third frame leading playing competitor Gary Woodland by five on 17-under 123 -- a new 36-hole low on TOUR -- and was seven clear of three others that were tied 3rd. The 23-year-old opened with eight straight pars, including a 12'7" par-saver at the par-3 seventh, before breaking the ice with a 2-putt birdie at the par-5 ninth. He hit 14 greens in regulation for a third straight lap, adding circles on holes 10, 14, 16 and 18, each from inside of 14 feet. Thomas will be going for his third victory of the season in five starts and looking to become the first player since Ernie Els in 2003 to win the Hawaii double.

On the heels of a career-best 59, Justin Thomas tackled Waialae Country Club to the tune of a 6-under-par 33-31=64 in round two of the Sony Open in Hawaii, reaching the midpoint with a five-shot cushion on 17-under 123 to set a new PGA TOUR record for lowest 36-hole scoring mark.

Thomas put on an aerial show for the second straight day at Waialae Country Club. Despite missing seven (of 14) fairways, he gained 1.751 strokes off-the-tee, putting an emphasis on his extreme length. After the missles have been launched off the tee, Thomas has been terrorizing flagsticks, as well. Most notable today was his 161-yard tee ball at the par-3 seventh which ended up just five inches from the cup. On the week he ranks third in strokes gained approaching-the-green. The only blemishes on the round came with the flat stick, as he missed twice from inside five feet. Despite the few bunnies missed, Thomas set a new record for lowest 36-hole score to open a PGA TOUR event, previously 124 held by three golfers, most recently Jason Day at the 2015 BMW Championship. Thomas is completely locked in as he continues to expand on his 2016-17 breakout tour.

Fresh off a win at the SBS Tournament of Champions, Justin Thomas blitzed Wailalae Country Club with an 11-under-par 30-29=59 to kick off his week at the Sony Open in Hawaii, staking his claim as the early clubhouse leader.

It would have been easy for Thomas to put it on cruise control after a big win last week, but he planted his intentions with an eagle at his opening hole (par-4 10th). Thomas followed that up with a bogey at the par-3 11th after finding the greenside bunker off the tee. That would be his lone blemish of the round. The 23-year-old was smothering flagsticks all day, gaining 3.617 strokes approaching-the-green but his flat stick was the wildcard that gave him the extra boost needed. Thomas splashed home four putts from 11-to-17 feet on the round to gain 3.882 strokes putting. This will go in the books as just the eighth sub-60 round ever recorded on the PGA TOUR and also eclipses the previous course record of 60 held by Davis Love III (1994 when it played as a par 72). Thomas is riding high right now and showing no signs of slowing down in Hawaii. There have been seven wire-to-wire winners at the Sony Open and Thomas is hoping to become the eighth by week's end.

With a birdie-birdie finish, overnight leader and World No. 22 Justin Thomas overcame a late double bogey-7 to card a 4-under-par 33-36=69 in today's final round of the SBS Tournament of Champions, posting 22-under 270 and a three-shot win over playing competitor Hideki Matsuyama, who shot 70.

The 23-year-old, who also co-led at the midpoint, hoists the trophy for a second time this season in four starts and claims his third PGA TOUR title in his 73rd career event (69 as pro). All three of his wins have been in limited-field no-cut events, winning the 2016 CIMB Classic as a 54-hole co-leader and the 2017 version in come-from-behind fashion, beating runner-up Matsuyama by three with an 8-under 64. The Kentuckian began the finale with a two-shot lead after opening in trip-67s, and increased the margin to three at the break with birdies on Nos. 3, 5 and 8 (27'4"). He squared the 10th (failed scramble), circled 11 and 13, then ate double on the 15th after snap-hooking his second into the hazard. Thomas sealed the deal with a 214-yard approach to 39 inches at the 17th, and two-putted the par-5 18th from 25'4" for the final margin.
Jan 8 - 7:45 PM

Overnight co-leader Justin Thomas fired a 6-under-par 34-33=67 in today's third round of the SBS Tournament of Champions to post 18-under 201, good for a two-shot lead over Hideki Matsuyama who shot 66.

After opening in twin 67s, the 23-year-old began R3 co-leading with playing competitor Ryan Moore on 12-under. He squared a lone bogey on the par-4 seventh (failed scramble) but camouflaged it with five birdies and an eagle-2 from 22'1" at the drivable par-4 14th. The Kentucky native and resident found 10 (of 15) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, gaining 2.938 strokes on the field despite a -0.509 in SG: Putting. Along with the eagle, he converted from 15'8" for birdie-3 at the fourth with his other four circles dropping from inside of five feet, missing three other scoring chances from eight feet or less. Both of Thomas' TOUR wins came back-to-back at the no-cut CIMB in 2016 and 2017, the first as a 54-hole co-leader, and 11 weeks ago, came from four back with a closing 8-under 64 to beat Matsuyama by three.
Jan 7 - 8:31 PM

World No. 22 Justin Thomas smoothed a 6-under-par 33-34=67 in today's second round of the SBS Tournament of Champions to post 12-under 134, good for a share of the 36-hole lead with playing competitor Ryan Moore.

Thomas and Moore were paired together in R2 and both shot 67. In fact, the duo has matched 67s in each of the first two rounds. For his part, Thomas circled seven today against a lone bogey at the par-5 15th, 3-putting from 49'1". He landed 11 (of 15) fairways and pelted all 18 greens in regulation, gaining 2.344 stroked tee-to-green and 3.094 SG: Total. The 23-year-old, who won the no-cut CIMB Classic in October as the defending champ and 36-hole leader, finished birdie-birdie and also circled three straight on Nos. 3-5. His split featured five from inside of seven feet and two from between 12 and 16 feet, highlighted by a 15-footer at the par-4 17th.
Jan 6 - 10:15 PM

Justin Thomas torched The Plantation Course at Kapalua Resort with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the SBS Tournament of Champions.

Thomas trickled out of the gates with seven straight pars. It was a key 10'6" par-saver at the par-4 first hole that may have helped with confidence on the greens for the rest of the round. On the day he dropped in seven putts from outside five feet, including a 21'6" birdie bomb at the par-3 eighth. That was good for 2.611 strokes gained putting on the round. The wide fairways at Kapalua Resort allow Thomas to grip-it and rip-it on the tee box but he'll need to maintain a hot putting stroke if he wants to keep his foot on the gas and find himself near the top by week's end. This is his second trip to Maui, finishing T21 last year in his debut.
Jan 5 - 9:50 PM

Justin Thomas heads into the holidays ranked second in the FedExCup standings.

Thomas opened the season with a T8 at the Safeway Open before successfully defending his title at the CIMB Classic and then posting a T23 at the WGC-HSBC Champions. The results are eerily similar to his year-over-year finishes in those same events (T3-1-T27). Last year he parlayed that great fall into $4,126,366 and a 12th-place finish in the FedExCup race by season's end. It was a breakout season for the youngster out of the University of Alabama. His next step will be consistency in major championships as his current resume shows just on top 25 in six attempts (T18, 2015 PGA Championship). Gamers should continue to treat Thomas as a top-tier option anytime he tees it up.

Justin Thomas twirled a bogey-free, 8-under-par 64 in the finale of the CIMB Classic, securing a second-straight CIMB Classic title, finishing the week on 23-under 265 to clear the field by three strokes.

After watching his Crimson Tide remain undefeated before the round, Thomas was inspired to do the same at TPC Kuala Lumpur. It led to a plethora of birdies early in the round, circling birdies in four of his first five holes. He would sprinkle four more birdies throughout the card, but more importantly kept his card clean. The 23-year-old takes the honor of low-lap of the day, with nobody else in the field eclipsing 6-under today. Thomas has now played eight rounds at TPC Kuala Lumpur, posting an aggregate of 49-under en route to a pair of victories (his only two PGA TOUR titles). In the fourth official playing of this event, there have only been two winners with Ryan Moore winning back-to-back in the 2014 and 2015 editions. This is also the first successful title defense on the PGA TOUR since Matt Every won the Arnold Palmer Invitational in 2014 and 2015. Thomas will now look to snowball this into success in Shanghai next week.

Overnight leader and defending champion Justin Thomas roller-coastered his way to a 1-under-par 36-35=71 during the third round of the CIMB Classic, entering the finale in a share of second place on 15-under 201.

Thomas carded 15 birdies over the first two rounds but a one birdie, one bogey, front nine left him seeking more. That got him into trouble as he made the turn, carding bogey-double bogey-bogey to fall to 4-over on the day. The double coming as a result of a splashed tee ball at the par-3 11th. The 23-year-old rebounded like a poised veteran, rattling off five straight birdies to walk off TPC Kuala Lumpur in style. The mid-round slide will sting but the late rally will certainly make dinner taste a lot better. Thomas will now enter the finale four strokes off the pace set by Anirban Lahiri, with a very real chance of defending his title here in Malaysia.

Justin Thomas continued his birdie blitz at TPC Kuala Lumpur, shooting a bogey-free 6-under-par 34-32=66 in Friday's second round at the CIMB Classic in Malaysia to post 14-under 130 at the midpoint and take a two-shot lead over the field.

Thomas won here with 26-under 12 months ago and shows no signs of relinquishing the trophy after another cruise around the par 72. Starting at 10, he picked off birdies at 13 and 17 on his opening nine and splashed further red on the odd holes with gains at 1, 3, 5 and 7 coming home. It looked as if he'd have to share the halfway lead with Anirban Lahiri (66) but the Indian swallowed a double bogey-7 at the 18th to drop two behind. It's a further stroke back to Scotland's Russell Knox (63), American James Hahn (64) and Japan's Hideki Matsuyama (64). The 23-year-old American, who has held at least a share of the lead since last year’s second round 61, said: "I drove the ball well and had it in the fairways a lot (11 of 14) and had a lot of birdie opportunities (15 greens in reg). There's definitely a couple shots I'd like to have back, but I mean, going bogey-free and 6-under is always good."

Justin Thomas ripped through TPC Kuala Lumpur on his way to an 8-under-par 33-31=64 opening round of the CIMB Classic in Malaysia which left him tied for the 18-hole lead alongside Derek Fathauer and Keegan Bradley.

It was a stunning start for the defending champion and means he has now held or shared the lead in four straight rounds on the course, having assumed the 36-hole lead 12 months ago and never relinquished it. His round started in style when he dropped a birdie putt from 19'0" at the first and followed it with back-to-back red at 4 and 5 before fading the only shot of the day at No. 6. But he eased an approach to 6'0" at 9 and converted the birdie, before adding two more at 10 and 11. Another brace came at 13 and 14, the latter a kick-in par breaker. Proof that his irons were dialled in came again at 16 when he had just 4'0" for the 9th birdie of the day and he took the chance. He split 9 of 14 fairways and landed 13 of 18 greens. He, Fathauer and Bradley lead Paul Casey by one heading into the second round.

Justin Thomas has his first chance at defending a PGA TOUR title as he preps for this week's CIMB Classic in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The Crimson Tide product took advantage of prime scoring conditions last year en route to a 26-under winning score during his CIMB debut. That includes a course record, 11-under 61 in round two. Preferred lies were in use all four rounds, but 30 birdies and two eagles over four rounds is more-than-impressive regardless of the conditions. Thomas was dialed in with his putter all week, needing just 25-25-26-28 putts per round as the week went on. Gamers should not expect a repeat of 30 birdies/2 eagles this week, but Thomas is still a valuable fantasy asset in all fantasy formats. In his Safeway Open tune-up for this event the 23-year-old made the cut on the number and then rallied over the weekend to finish T8.

Justin Thomas crafted a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in today's final round of the Safeway Open to conclude his fourth appearance on 14-under 274, up one spot on the live leaderboard to T9. UPDATE: With play completed, Thomas finished in a five-way T8.

The 23-year-old wrapped up last season with a T6 at the TOUR Championship and kicks off his third season on TOUR with an apparent top 10. He was T3 here a year ago, so he won't better that finish, but he rebounded nicely this week, chasing an opening 75 with 66 to make the cut on the number. The Alabama product played the weekend in 66-67, climbing from T51 thru 36 holes to T10 and his current spot on the board. For the week, he totaled one eagle and 23 birdies, including seven each in rounds 3 and 4, against just five bogeys, but he had two dreaded "others" with two triples in R1. Thomas heads to Malaysia for the CIMB Classic where he's the defending champion, winning his maiden title in a tournament record (to par) of 26-under.
