Justin Thomas kept his slim title hopes alive with a second round of level-par 34-36=70, good for a 36-hole total of 4-over 144 in the U.S. Open Championship, eight strokes back of clubhouse leader Dustin Johnson.
He maybe distant of compatriot Johnson yet Thomas lunched lying T24 on the live leaderboard and with the potential for that position to only get better as the day wears on with many of his peers continuing to struggle with the fierce Shinnecock Hills Golf Club examination. From tee to green the 25-year-old didn't shine himself, hitting only 8 of 14 fairways and exactly half the greens in regulation. He compensated by needing just 27 putts and 1.50 per green he hit in regulation. He opened with a failed scramble for bogey at the tenth (playing the back nine first), but responded with an up-and-down from 24 yards for birdie at the 360-yard par-4 13th and 5'6" par breaker at 17. He made back-to-back errors at two and three before correcting his card with an 11'8" birdie at the seventh. Jun 15 - 1:52 PM

Justin Thomas just lost his World No. 1 title (which he also just earned) but he'll have a chance to get it back this week at the 118th U.S. Open Championship.

JT tracked down Dustin Johnson and overcame him in the Official World Golf Rankings following THE PLAYERS Championship this year. He held onto that No. 1 spot for about a month but now he's back to second after a Dustin Johnson win at the St. Jude Classic. Surely not the first thing on his mind this week but Thomas is one of six golfers with a chance of grabbing that World No. 1 tag by week's end (D Johnson, Spieth, Rose, Rahm, McIlroy). While his form looks solid, he will need to avoid a slow start which has plagued him recently in terms of avoiding the winner's circle. Since his win at The Honda Classic he's been outside the top 25 after 36 holes in four of his last five starts. How about his record at the U.S. Open? It's promising as he's improved upon each return (MC in 2014, T32 in 2016, T9 in 2017).

FedExCup leader and World No. 1 Justin Thomas played his final four holes in 4-under en route to a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in the final round of the Memorial Tournament to wrap on 11-under 277, up 12 places to T9 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Thomas finished T8, four short of a 3-man playoff.

This was the 25-year-old's first action since a T11 at THE PLAYERS three weeks ago, which earned him the No. 1 ranking. He improves to 3-for-5 at the Memorial with two top 25s, second straight, and potentially a second top 10 after T4 last year. The Alabama product is now 13-for-14 on the season with a TOUR-leading 13 top 25s, three straight, and if the top 10 holds, his sixth, first since 4th at the WGC-Match Play. For the week, he tallied two eagles and 19 birdies versus 10 bogeys and one double. On 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, the Jupiter, Florida, resident squared three bogeys, outpaced by five birdies and eagle-3 at 15 from 25'11".

Freshly minted World No. 1 Justin Thomas streaks into the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide at Muirfield Village in Ohio this week.

Thomas has been on fire this season, not only making the cut in 12 of his 13 events, but finishing 22nd or better in those outings. In fact, the only time he did not play into the weekend was a partner event at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. He should make plenty of noise this weekend at Jack Nicklaus' Invitational, as there are plenty of reachable Par 5s. Thomas checks in third on the TOUR in Par 5 Scoring (4.49), and he is second with 11 Total Eagles. He has been one of the most consistent high-ticket DFS items this season.

FedExCup leader and World No. 2 Justin Thomas fashioned a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of THE PLAYERS to conclude on 11-under 277, up 24 places to T9 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Thomas finished T11, seven short of champion Webb Simpson, and climbs to No. 1 in OWGR for the first time, 0.2524 average points ahead of now No. 2 Dustin Johnson.

The 25-year-old was one of 13 players to make the cut on the number (73-70) before carding one of only two blemish-free laps in R3 (68). He continued his rebound from the opening 73, the second straight week he's opened with that number, erasing a double bogey-6 on Day 4 (tee ball in the water) with six birdies and eagle-3 at 2 from 16'6". After the uneven beginning, the Alabama product played his final 36 in 10-under with 10 birdies and one eagle, while today's double was his only blemish. For the week. he totaled one eagle and 21 birdies against eight bogeys and two doubles. Thomas is now 4-for-4 at THE PLAYERS with three top 25s and potentially a second top 10 (T3/2016). He improves to 12-for-13 on the season with a TOUR-leading 12 top 25s and possibly a sixth top 10, first since solo 4th at the Match Play.

FedExCup leader and World No. 2 Justin Thomas carved out a 1-under-par 37-33=70 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship to conclude on 2-under 282, up nine places to T22 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Thomas finished T21, 10 adrift of champion Jason Day.

This was the second straight week that Thomas had an chance to overtake No. 1 Dustin Johnson, who hasn't played since a T16 at the RBC Heritage. He needed a solo 12th and is not going to get there. The reigning FedExCup champ should hold on for a TOUR-leading 11th top 25 of the season in 12 starts. Other than a missed cut at the Zurich teamed with Bud Cauley, he'll have recorded 12 consecutive top 25s dating to solo 2nd at the TOUR Championship. The 25-year-old, unhappy with his putting, employed Rickie Fowler's backup putter for Rounds 2-4. For the week, he totaled 14 birdies against 12 bogeys and is currently ranked 48th in SG: Putting at -0.472, including a -1.380 today, and 0.311 for Fri-Sun. Thomas, who won last year's PGA here, should record his second top 25 at the WFC in three tries, joining a T7 on debut in 2015.

Justin Thomas hoisted the hardware at the 2017 PGA Championship hosted by Quail Hollow Club and returns to the North Carolina layout this week for the Wells Fargo Championship.

Thomas eased into his first major championship victory here last year. He opened with a 2-over 73 to sit in a share of 44th place before turning on the scoring machine. On the week he traded 20 birdies with 12 bogeys, getting six of those bogeys out of the way in round one. That wasn't the first time seeing Quail Hollow Club as Thomas pieced together a T7 in his 2015 Wells Fargo Championship debut and returned to miss the cut in 2016. An early week projection suggests that Thomas will need a solo 12th or better this week in order to overcome Dustin Johnson as the No. 1 golfer in the world. Looking at his recent finishes during individual stroke-play events, JT has posted a solo 12th or better in 5 of his last 10 starts. He is basically a coin flip to become World No. 1 by week's end.

In alternate-shot action, World No. 2 Justin Thomas and World No. 119 Bud Cauley bobbed and weaved to a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and at 4-under 140, missed the cut by one shot.

A total of 36 teams from a field of 80 teams made the 36-hole cut of 5-under 139. The duo of Thomas/Cauley were one of 19 returning tandems from last year's inaugural team edition, where they finished T5. This year, they were a pre-tourney 11/1 outright, second-highest on the bookmaker's food chain, and bowed out with rounds of 70-70. Today's five-birdie, three-bogey effort was not the culprit, tied for the sixth-best lap of the day and vaulting them 40 places up the leaderboard. Rather, it was yesterday's version in best ball, leaving them T77 after Round 1. In total, six of the top 10 teams this week by outright odds hit the road. Other notable early exits include: 140- Jordan Spieth/Ryan Palmer; Sergio Garcia/Rafa Cabrera Bello .. 141- defending champs Jonas Blixt/Cameron Smith; Daniel Berger/Gary Woodland; Wesley Bryan/Jon Rahm .. 142- Kevin Na/Byeong Hun An .. 144- Brandt Snedeker/J.B. Holmes.

Justin Thomas rolls into the Zurich Classic of New Orleans this week pairing with a familiar face.

Thomas will partner with fellow University of Alabama alumni Bud Cauley. The two know TPC Louisiana very well from their college days, although the format is certainly much different than college play and the regular PGA Tour grind. Round 2 and 4 will be alternate shot rounds, and since they know each other so well they should enjoy great success during the format. They tied for fifth in NOLA last season, so this is certainly a team to watch very closely.

FedExCup leader and World No. 2 Justin Thomas back-pedaled with a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the third round of the Masters Tournament, dipping three places to T9 on 5-under 211, a distant nine in arrears of 54-hole leader Patrick Reed, who shot 67.

After kicking off with 74-67, the 24-year-old began T6, six back of Reed. He hit eight (of 14) fairways and pelted 17 greens in regulation, needing 32 total putts. The Jupiter, Florida, resident carded three birdies at holes 2, 8 and 18 (from 10 feet), squaring bogey-4 at 12 (missed par-saver from eight feet). He missed a 6-foot scoring chance at 7 and a 9-footer at 15. The Alabama product will be paired with Jordan Spieth on Sunday in the fifth-to-last twosome.

Justin Thomas torched Augusta National Golf Club to the tune of a 5-under-par 34-33=67 during round two of the Masters Tournament, the low round of the day so far, soaring up the leaderboard into a share of sixth place, racking up a two-day tally of 3-under 141.

The big hitter is making his third appearance at this event and the course seems like a natural fit. It hasn't worked out that way until today. In his previous nine rounds at Augusta National, he signed for zero rounds in the 60s and never beat the field average by more than 2.02 strokes. That all changed today, largely buoyed by strong scrambling. Highlights included a pair of chip-in birdies, one at the 6th and then again at the 14th. Then after staring down trouble on the 18th, he backboarded his approach shot and nearly pulled the string right into the hole, settling for a tap-in par. Needing just 23 swipes with the putter today, Thomas will be a major threat over the weekend if his short game continues to shine like today. This will be the first time Thomas has positioned himself better than T19 after any round at the Masters, currently tied for a share of sixth place.

Justin Thomas goes to the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club this week looking to catch his first-ever green jacket.

Thomas is among the favorites at 12-1, according to Vegas, tied with Dustin Johnson as the second-largest fave. That likely has a lot to do with the fact he has two wins under his belt already, and he has rattled off five top-10 finishes. He handled himself with aplomb last season, pulling off a 22nd-place showing at the Masters. He posted a 71 on Moving Day, and posted a final-round 70 to scoot up the leaderboard. Thomas isn't fazed by the big stage, and he won the most recent major, the PGA Championship, back in mid-August. The pride of the Alabama Crimson Tide is playing in just his third Masters, but he has made the cut in each of his first two attempts.
Apr 4 - 6:18 AM

FedExCup leader and 2-seed Justin Thomas limped to a 5-and-3 loss to 13-seed Alex Noren in the Consolation Match at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and settles for 4th place, his third top 10 in 10 WGCs and second straight top 5.

Thomas had a chance to move to World No. 1 with a semifinal win over 35-seed Bubba Watson but lost 3-and-2. Watson of course, would later go on to win the title. The 24-year-old, off since a P2 at the WGC-Mexico three weeks ago, entered the week a bit under-the-weather. He recently had his wisdom teeth removed and then fell ill (strep throat). This was the Alabama product's best finish in three tries, each at Austin CC, eclipsing a T39 last year (1-2-0 record). He departs with a 5-2-0 mark and an overall record of 6-7-0. After losing on Sunday morning, he didn't have much left in the tank in the afternoon session, taking nothing away from Noren. Thomas won only two of the 15 holes played, one with birdie and one with a concession, and never led. He does net his fifth top 10 of the season in nine starts, fourth straight, and fourth top 5, third consecutive (P2, WGC-Mexico; P1, Honda). Thomas also was a playoff winner at the inaugural CJ CUP back in October.

2-seed Justin Thomas outlasted 45-seed Kyle Stanley 2-and-1 in the Quarterfinals of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and moves on to the Semifinals against 35-seed Bubba Watson (4-0-1).

The FedExCup leader improves to 5-0-0 while Stanley departs with a 3-2-0 record and a T5. For Stanley, it's his best finish in two tries (T17/2012) and his third top 10 of the season in 11 starts, first since T10 at the Sony. Thomas, whose best finish in two prior visits was a T39 last year (1-2-0), will be looking for his third win of the season in nine events. Unlike his two most recent matches, which didn't make it to the 14th hole, Thomas was tested (a tad) in his duel against Stanley, who held a 1 UP lead thru five holes though each player didn't card a birdie until the halving the fifth. Thomas got back to all square with birdie-4 at 6 and went 1 UP with birdie-3 at 8. Stanley leveled the proceedings with a birdie-3 at 9 (from 12'1") but Thomas won each of the next three holes, one with birdie, to go 3 UP. Stanley trimmed that margin to 2 DOWN with birdie-3 at 13 but could get no closer.
Mar 24 - 5:54 PM

Justin Thomas completed another demolition job at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, thrashing Si Woo Kim 6-and-5 in their morning Round of 16 match at Austin Country Club to become the first player into the last eight.

After wrapping up a perfect 3-0-0 Group record with a 7-and-5 win over Francesco Molinari, the American was unstoppable again today. The second seed took the lead after a concession by Kim at No. 2 and extended that to 5-up at the turn with winning birdies at 3 and 9 along with Kim bogeys at 7 and 8. After the 11th was shared in birdie-2, Thomas found another red number at the par-5 12th to go 6-up with six to play and when both players made par at 13 it was time to shake hands. Thomas, who will go to World No. 1 this week if he lifts the trophy, will play the winner of the Sergio Garcia v Kyle Stanley match. "Wasn't anything crazy or anything special," he said. "I was just playing solid golf tee-to-green and forcing him to have to try to make a lot of putts to halve holes."
