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. Oct 23 - 3:00 AM

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.

Due to heavy rain, the third round of the Safeway Open in Napa, California, was suspended at 5:42 p.m. PT. UPDATE: The third round resumed as scheduled at 7:40 a.m. Sunday with 16 players needing to complete their respective rounds.

Third-round play is done for the day at Silverado Resort and is scheduled to resume at 7:40 a.m. on Sunday. Final-round tee times for Sunday had previously been pushed forward to a 7:45 a.m. two-tee start, but those will have to be adjusted further after 16 players were stranded on Saturday. This after 72 players had to complete their second rounds earlier Saturday morning. One player who got his third lap into the books was Justin Thomas, though he was visibly upset with a walk-off bogey-6 at the ninth, missing a par-saver from six feet. It was the 23-year-old's lone blemish in an otherwise enjoyable lap, which began off No. 10 tee. He circled seven birdies on 16 greens in regulation en route to his second straight 66 as he continues to fight back from an opening 75. Thomas is currently T10 on the leaderboard, up 41 spots on the round.

With preferred lies in effect, Justin Thomas twirled a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the two-day second round of the Safeway Open to reach the halfway point on 3-under 141, up 79 places to T50 with play still in progress.

The 23-year-old opened his fourth appearance with a 3-over 75 that was marred by a triple bogey-7 and a triple bogey-8. He was 4-under thru 12 holes of his second round on Friday and was T82 when play was suspended, one outside the projected cut line. The Kentucky native and resident returned on Saturday to card four pars before a birdie-birdie finish on holes 17 and 18. All told, he circled four birdies and added an eagle-3 on the fifth from 40 inches. Thomas mustered just six (of 14) fairways for a second straight lap but improved from nine to 15 greens in regulation and a 3.373 SG: Tee-to-Green at the time he signed his card.

12-seed Justin Thomas carded a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to finish off his tournament debut on 5-under 275, up three spots into a two-way T6, and finishing a career-best 12th in the final FedExCup standings.

The 23-year-old began the final round in solo ninth on 2-under after opening in 68-71-69. He squared a lone bogey on the par-3 second (failed scramble) but outpaced it with birdies on holes 3, 6, 14 and 18, three from inside of 10 feet with a long of 16'11" at the par-4 14th. For the week, he carded 15 birdies against eight bogeys and a double, ending the season with seven top 10s in 28 events, matching the same amount of top 10s he had in last year's rookie campaign on 30 starts.

12-seed Justin Thomas carved out a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the TOUR Championship to reach the three-quarter pole on 2-under 208, down one spot to solo ninth.

The 23-year-old squared bogey-5s on Nos. 1, 14 and 16, all on failed scrambles, but outpaced them with birdies at 8, 11 (from 36'5") and 12, adding a two-putt version from 36'5" for a walk-off 4 at the par-5 18th. He posted week bests with 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, getting the most out of his round with 1.594 SG: Off-the-Tee.
Sep 24 - 3:19 PM

Justin Thomas settled for a 1-over-par 36-35=71 during the second round of the TOUR Championship to keep himself inside the top 10 at 1-under 139.

Thomas opened with a very boring one bogey, eight par, front nine. He splashed in two putts from 8-to-14 feet in that stretch, both to save par. He circled his first birdie at the par-4 10th but found trouble at the par-3 11th. After missing his 10'4" par-saving attempt, Thomas was lining up a 2'1" tap-in when the ball moved and cost him an extra stroke, leading to a double bogey. Thomas gave back one more at the par-4 13th but rebounded with birdies at 15 and 17 to salvage the round. The Ryder Cup hopeful will enter the weekend at T8 on the leaderboard, well within striking distance as he looks to make one final impression on captain Davis Love III.
Sep 23 - 5:31 PM

Making his debut at East Lake Golf Club, Justin Thomas fired a 2-under-par 34-34=68 to open his week at the TOUR Championship.

The Ryder Cup hopeful made a good impression on day one in Atlanta. He landed 11 greens in regulation, but gained 2.004 strokes approaching-the-green, so he was doing the best he could with the positioning he gave himself off the tee. He scribbled eight pars to open the round before circling his first birdie, a 14'7" splash. It was one of two putts converted from the 13-to-15 feet range. The 23-year-old is off to a great start on a day where scoring was difficult, but he'll need to keep his foot on the gas if he wants to impress Ryder Cup captain Davis Love III by week's end.
Sep 22 - 5:11 PM

World No. 32 Justin Thomas is one of seven first-timers competing at the TOUR Championship and arrives as the 12-seed in the FedExCup standings.

The 23-year-old ranks last in the 30-man field in par-4 scoring average at 4.06 and will have to improve on that if he wants to make any waves at the par-70 East Lake GC. True to season-long form, he was T48 (of 68 players) with a 4.08 in the penultimate Playoffs event at Crooked Stick en route to a T32 (71-71-73-68). On the plus side, the Kentuckian has been in the top 20 in FEC points the entire season after kicking off with T3 at the Frys.com, and led the standings after Weeks 3 and 4 following his break-through win at the CIMB Classic back in November.

Justin Thomas backed up with an even-par 36-35=71 in the final round of The Barclays to conclude his second appearance on 5-under 279, down four places to T10, but projecting to climb two spots to eighth in the FedExCup standings.

The second-year man supplants T16 on debut last year at Plainfield CC. He began the final round in a four-way T6 on 5-under after opening in 71-71-66. The Kentucky native and resident mustered just five (of 14) fairways but hit 13 greens in regulation, posting -0.933 SG: Off-the-Tee and -0.549 SG: Putting. He exchanged bogeys on Nos. 5, 8 and 13 with birdies on 2, 3 and 11. The 23-year-old hangs on for his sixth top 10 of the season in 25 events and second in his last three starts (T3, Travelers).

The 23-year-old swallowed a double bogey-6 at the fifth, but elsewhere was blemish-free, carding birdies on Nos. 1, 6, 8, 9, 11, 12 and 18, three from between 10 and 13 feet, with a long of 17'7" at the par-4 opener. His birdie-2 at the eighth was a pitch in from the right rough 28'3" from the target. Thomas entered the week 10th in the FedExCup standings with five top 10s in 24 starts, including four third-place finishes and his maiden TOUR title at the CIMB Classic in his 43rd career start.
