Beginning off No. 10 tee, defending champ and World No. 4 Justin Thomas rallied late for a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii, currently up nine spots to T11 on 6-under 134, seven adrift of 36-hole clubhouse leader Brian Harman.

The 24-year-old was 17-under at halftime in last year's wire-to-wire gem. He was muddling along today at 1-over thru 15 holes, overshadowing two circles at 10 and 16 with three squares at 1, 3 and 6, but then finished birdie-birdie-eagle. The reigning FedExCup champ landed nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.824 strokes around-the-green but gaining 0.896 off-the-tee and 2.092 on approach. He posted 1.615 putts per GIR and 0.449 SG: Putting with 28 total putts. Each of the Alabama product's par breakers dropped from between seven and 12 feet, highlighted by the walk-off eagle-3 at 9 from 9'4".

Defending champion Justin Thomas "settled" for a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-34=67 during round one of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Thomas is playing the role of defending champion (for the second week in a row). He's doing so without the services of his regular caddie, Jimmy Johnson. With Jim "Bones" Mackay on his bag, Thomas landed 12 greens in regulation but couldn't get the putts to fall. He missed six birdie chances from 8-to-17 feet. Thomas had lofty R1 standards to live up to, posting his infamous 11-under 59 in R1 last year. He took eight more swipes today, but a bogey-free 67 is nothing to scoff at. The Alabama product will now head into round two just four strokes off the pace.

Justin Thomas returns to the scene of his infamous '59' as he prepares for a title defense at this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

Thomas ran wild and free during his 2017 Sony Open victory. He opened the week with a career-best, 11-under 59, and then cruised home with rounds of 64-65-65. He led by 3, 5, 7, and 7 as the week progressed. His Sentry Tournament of Champions title defense hit a possible snag last week when his regular caddie, Jimmy Johnson, went on the DL with Plantar Fasciitis and he will be sidelined for at least a month. Thomas had his dad caddie for his last week but for the Sony he's managed to snag Jim "Bones" Mackay as a looper. With Phil Mickelson never playing in the Sony Open, Mackay's knowledge of the course will be limited but that shouldn't be a problem for Thomas who will be playing this course for the fourth year in a row. It's impossible to know how the duo will mesh but it does leave a slight question mark over Thomas' head entering the week.

Justin Thomas led or co-led after three rounds and ultimately won the 2017 Sentry Tournament of Champions, returning this week for another crack at Kapalua Resort's Plantation Course. UPDATE: Thomas, whose dad caddied for him in Rounds 3 and 4 due to injury to his regular caddie, finished 4-under 288 (71-75-75-67), currently T22 (of 34).

Thomas entered this event last year ranked 22nd in the Official World Golf Ranking. He went on to post three straight rounds of 67 followed by a closing 4-under 69 to win by three strokes. That vaulted him to 12th in the world and one week later he'd rocket to 8th in the OWGR after winning for a second straight week (Sony Open). Those were just two of his eventual five wins that came during the 2017 calendar year (PGA Championship, Dell Technologies Championship, and THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES). Winning that many times in a single year is a lot to ask, but Thomas has proven to have a magnet for the winner's circle during his entire amateur career, as well. Gamers should continue to treat him as a top-tier fantasy option each and every week he tees it up.

Reigning FedExCup champion and World No. 3 Justin Thomas makes final preparations for his Hero World Challenge debut at Albany in The Bahamas and is paired with five-time HWC champion Tiger Woods in Round 1 on Thursday (12:05 pm ET).

The reigning PGA TOUR Player of the Year will get a bird's-eye view of Woods' much-anticipated return to competitive action and is a pre-tourney 11/2 co-fave outright. After finishing runner-up at the TOUR Championship, he went 3-1-1 as a Presidents Cup rookie, T17 at the CIMB Classic (as defender), and won the inaugural CJ CUP (as 54-hole co-leader and a 15/2 pre-tourney fave outright) the following week, prevailing in a two-man playoff (Marc Leishman). The 24-year-old, idle since Korea (six weeks), has won three times in his last seven starts, including his first major title (PGA) and his first FEC Playoffs win (Dell). He's a co-fave with World No. 2 Jordan Spieth, winner in 2015 (Isleworth G&CC).

First-round leader and third-round co-leader Justin Thomas tacked on an even-par 37-35=72 in the final round of the inaugural CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES to match Marc Leishman (70) on 9-under 279, and then defeated him with birdie on the second playing of the par-5 18th in sudden death, improving to 5-for-7 converting as 54-hole leader/co-leader. UPDATE: Thomas bumps one spot to a career-high 3rd in OWGR.

The World No. 4 and pre-tourney fave outright (15/2), bags his seventh TOUR title in 96 career events (92 pro), first in extra time. It's his first win of the season in his second start after T17 as defender at last week's CIMB. The 24-year-old is just the seventh fave/co-fave in the last 96 TOUR events to go on to win. After kicking off in 63-74-70, he began T1 with playing competitor Scott Brown (76), two clear of Leishman (one group ahead). The reigning FedExCup champ found nine (of 14) fairways and 14 GIR, posting 1.857 putts per GIR. He played his first eight in birdie-less 2-over, eating double bogey-7 at 3, but got back on track with a hat-trick of circles at 9-11. Thomas squared 13 and 17 before a 2-putt birdie at 18 secured the playoff. After halving the first playing with pars, Leishman would find water with his second and Thomas claimed the trophy with a stress-free 4. In his last seven starts, the Kentuckian has five top 10s, including a runner-up and three wins.

First-round leader and World No. 4 Justin Thomas tossed up a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the third round of THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES to post 9-under 207, up three places to T1, sharing the 54-hole lead with Scott Brown.

After an opening 9-under 63, the reigning FedExCup champ finds himself back at that total after 74-70. Similar to R2, Day 3 saw challenging scoring conditions with the average score clocking in at a week-worst 74.795. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, the 24-year-old took care of the par 5s, circling four birdie-4s, adding birdie-3 at 11. His blemishes were bogey-5 at 10 and double bogey-6 at No. 8, his first double or worse on the week. The Alabama product, big dog this week in OWGR and pre-tourney odds outright (15/2), landed 11 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, recording 1.667 putts per GIR. This is his seventh 54-hole lead/co-lead in 96 career events (92 pro), previously 4-for-6 converting, most recently at the Dell Tech four starts ago. Four of Thomas' six career TOUR titles have been as 54-hole leader/co-leader.

Overnight leader Justin Thomas took a step back in round two of The CJ CUP at Nine Bridges, swallowing a 2-over-par 39-35=74 to find himself at 7-under 137 after 36 holes, good for a share of fourth place.

Thomas was in the zone on Thursday but couldn't find that same success as the scoring conditions toughened on Friday. Most notable was his dip in par-5 performance. In round one he circled two birdies and two eagles to play the par 5s at 6-under-par. Today, all he could muster up was three pars and a bogey. The opening round is much closer to what we should expect to see from Thomas as the week goes on. However, he did admit to playing on Empty after a long year, looking forward to stashing his clubs away after this week. Gamers should expect a bounce-back performance over the weekend as Thomas looks to pick up his fifth victory of the 2017 calendar year.

FedExCup Champion and 2017 Player of the Year Justin Thomas tore through The Club at Nine Bridges to the tune of a 9-under-par 34-29=63 during round one of the inaugural CJ CUP, racing out to an early three-shot lead over the field.

Thomas opened his week on the back nine and swallowed a bogey on the par-4 10th. He turned on the scoring machine from there as he rattled off two eagles and four birdies in a seven-hole stretch, starting with an eagle at the par-5 12th. That included a hole-out birdie from the greenside bunker at the 13th and another hole out for birdie at the 16th (chip from just off the green). He then belted a drive at the 18th to give himself a wedge into the par-5 18th island green. Thomas cruised home from there with a comfortable 2-under 34 on his way into the clubhouse. After the round, Thomas said he is playing on Empty right now and is looking forward to the time off after this week. The youngster may be ready to hang it up for the year, but he's certainly not mailing anything in this week, looking to earn another game ball for his father's trophy wall.

FedExCup Champion and 2017 Player of the Year Justin Thomas takes his talents back to TPC Kuala Lumpur for this week's CIMB Classic, looking to win the event for a third straight season.

It was love at first sight for Thomas and TPC Kuala Lumpur. Making his debut just two years ago, he rattled off rounds of 68-61-67-66=262 (-26) to beat Adam Scott by one stroke. Thomas circled 30 birdies and an eagle that week, while also setting the course record in R2. He returned last year to pick up 29 more birdies (no eagles) en route to a 3-shot victory. Over a third of his scoring has come on the par 5s, playing them at 18-under in round rounds (49-under overall). With five wins in the past 12 months and two wins at this week's course, Thomas is a top-tier option in all fantasy formats.

Likely Player of the Year, Justin Thomas, and Rickie Fowler coasted to a 3-and-2 win over Branden Grace and Louis Oosthuizen during day two of the 2017 Presidents Cup, giving the United States a 5.5 to 1.5 lead with three matches still in progress on Friday.

This duo entered with a lot of upside and a little bit of uncertainty. Thomas is a rookie in team competition and Fowler arrived with a sub-standard record in team play. They've pushed all questions aside, and instead are proving to be the Americans toughest team to beat so far. The complemented each other perfectly en route to seven birdies through 16 holes of four-ball today. The most notable was a bunker hole out from Thomas at the par-4 14th to halve the hole and remain 2-up. They parlayed that into a birdie (win) at the 15th and Thomas nearly holed out a second bunker shot at the 16th, but a par was still good enough to end the match. Adding to the impact of this win, this snaps a five-match winning streak for Grace & Oosthuizen as a pairing.

Second-round co-leader and World No. 4 Justin Thomas authored a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to post 11-under 269, up two spots to solo 2nd, one short of champion Xander Schauffele, who shot 68, but wins the FedExCup, nudging one place and eclipsing former FEC leader Jordan Spieth, who finished T7.

Making his 25th start of the season, Thomas and Spieth (23 starts) ended up deadlocked with a TOUR-leading 12 top 10s, but Thomas won five times with one runner-up versus three wins for Spieth and three runners-up. This was his second visit (T6/2016) and overall, his fifth top 10 in 11 Playoffs events, four in his last five. The 24-year-old wraps the postseason with three top 10s in the four events (T47, BMW), highlighted by his win at the Dell Tech. After kicking off in 67-66-70, he began T4, five back of 54-hole leader Paul Casey. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, the Kentuckian hit seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.448 strokes tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 13, offset by five circles at 3 (from 15'8"), 6, 12, 16 and 17, just missing a closing birdie from 23'3". Thomas recorded 1.583 putts per GIR and 2.385 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. This is his first runner-up in 94 career events (90 pro).

Overnight tri-leader and World No. 4 Justin Thomas bobbed and weaved to an even-par 36-34=70 in the third round of the TOUR Championship for a three-day total of 7-under 203, down three spots to T4, five back of 54-hole leader Paul Casey, who shot 65.

After kicking off in 67-66, the 24-year-old co-led with Webb Simpson and playing competitor Casey.

The Kentuckian registered 1.750 putts per GIR and 0.050 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts. His split included two from between 11 and 27 feet with a long of 26'1" at the par-4 fourth.

World No. 4 Justin Thomas carded a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the second round of the TOUR Championship for a two-day tally of 7-under 133, up five places to T1 and the new 36-hole clubhouse leader. UPDATE: With play completed, Thomas is T1, tied with Paul Casey and Webb Simpson. This is his seventh 36-hole lead/co-lead in 94 career events, previously 4-for-6 converting, including his last four straight.

The 24-year-old walked off with a 5'6" eagle-3, the first eagle of the day at the par-5 18th. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, the latter is the best of day thus far in GIR. The Alabama product gained 1.018 strokes off-the-tee and 2.298 strokes approaching-the-green, currently No. 1 in SG: OTT with a cumulative 3.407. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 14 (failed sand save), offset by the eagle and three circles at 5, 6 and 13 (from 13'8"), posting 1.733 putts per GIR and -0.065 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts.
