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. Apr 7 - 8:17 PM

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.
Apr 6 - 7:22 PM

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.
Mar 25 - 7:08 PM

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."
Mar 24 - 12:10 PM

In a battle of 2-0-0 unbeatens, 2-seed Justin Thomas thumped 21-seed Francesco Molinari 7-and-5 in Day 3 action at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and heads to the Round of 16. UPDATE: Thomas will play Group 15 winner and 50-seed Si Woo Kim.

The FEC leader moves on to weekend action for the first time in his third appearance, entering the week with a dismal 1-5-0 record. That's all behind him now as he made quick work of the Italian on Friday after having to play at least 17 holes in his first two matches. The 24-year-old will play the yet-to-be-determined winner of Group 15. He carded seven birdies in 13 holes, dropping just one shot (and one hole) at the par-4 third. This after he had taken a 2 UP lead thru two holes. The Alabama product moved to 3 UP with back-to-back circles at 4 and 5, 4 UP with another birdie at 8 (from 18'7"), and 5 UP at the break with a concession at 9. He went 6 UP with birdie-3 at 10, halved the 12th with birdie-4s, and closed out with a concession at the par-4 13th.
Mar 23 - 4:12 PM

World No. 2 Justin Thomas took Patton Kizzire 17 holes before winning 3-and-1 during their second round match at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, reaching 2 points on the week ahead of his Friday battle with Francesco Molinari who is also 2-0-0 up to this point.

Thomas entered the week with a poor track record at this event (1-5-0) but he's cleaning up his match play resume this week. On day one he took care of Luke List who used a wedge to putt for most of the round. Today, he traded blows with Kizzire until JT splashed home a 10'6" eagle putt at the par-5 sixth to start his climb. That led to three straight holes won by Thomas, capped off by a 14'10" birdie at the eighth. Kizzire didn't have the firepower to mount a comeback although he did get the margin back to one after a pair of birdies at the 11th and 13th. With this win, Patton Kizzire and Luke List are mathematically eliminated. The winner of the Thomas-Molinari match will determine who advances onto the Round of 16.
Mar 22 - 7:28 PM

Seed No. 2 Justin Thomas survived his opening match against Luke List, winning 2-up to earn the first point out of Group 2 during this week's WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Thomas entered with a surprisingly poor 1-5-0 record in this event and a 1-6-0 overall record in singles competition since turning pro. JT had his wisdom teeth removed since the last time we saw him and also dealt with strep throat in the lead-up to this event. Despite all those factors, there wasn't any rust out of the gate as Thomas rolled in a birdie at the opening, par-4 first. He would pick up a second birdie at the 5th and then Luke List opened the door with back-to-back bogeys or worse. At that point, Thomas found himself 3-up thru 7 and Luke List also damaged his putter in the process. JT didn't capitalize on the handicapped List who "putted" with his wedge from that point on. Thomas never built on his lead and List actually made a late comeback, taking it all the way to 18 holes. Thomas will now prep for his Friday match against Patton Kizzire.
Mar 21 - 3:01 PM

En route to a day-low 7-under-par 32-32=64 that erased a four-shot deficit, FedExCup leader and World No. 3 Justin Thomas walked off with a hole-out eagle from 121 yards away at the par-4 18th to post the clubhouse lead on 16-under 268, matched three groups later by Phil Mickelson, and then lost to Mickelson's par on the first hole of sudden death, the par-3 17th. UPDATE: Thomas moves to career-high 2nd in OWGR, 1.0583 average points behind Dustin Johnson.

The 24-year-old, vying for his ninth TOUR title in 102 career events, second straight, settles for a second runner-up (2nd, 2017 TOUR Championship). His record drops to 2-1 in extra time after winning last week's Honda and THE CJ CUP back in October in playoffs. The Alabama alum tied the season lead in top 25s with eight, and has reeled off nine consecutive dating to East Lake. It's his fourth top 10, third straight, and overall, his 14th career top-3 finish. After opening in 72-70, Thomas was T38 on even-par, 11 back, but closed in 62-64, his 16-under weekend total tying a tourney record (to par) for 36 holes. He squared a lone bogey-4 at 17 (also the playoff hole), smothered by six birdies and the walk-off 2. In extra time, he airmailed the green and failed to get up and down, while Mickelson two-putted from 17'3" for the win. This was Thomas' ninth WGC event and second top 10, bettering a T5 here last year, where he was the 54-hole leader.
Mar 4 - 7:07 PM

FedExCup leader and World No. 3 Justin Thomas painted a 9-under-par 30-32=62 on Moving Day at the WGC-Mexico Championship to reach 9-under 204, up 32 places on the live leaderboard to T6 and setting a new course record. UPDATE: With play completed, Thomas is in 10th-place, four short of 54-hole leader Shubhankar Sharma.

Thomas eclipses Jordan Spieth's 63 last year, though Thomas' included a dropped shot. Both were out of the second group off No. 10 tee in R3. Thomas' 62 also ties the tournament record with four others, most recently J.B. Holmes in 2015/R1 (Doral), though those were 10-under versions. After opening in 72-70, he's getting progressively better, and his 62 is currently 8.298 strokes better than the field average in R3. The 24-year-old hit nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 2.329 strokes off-the-tee and 1.101 around-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-4 at 13 (3-putt from 50'4"), smothered by eight birdies and an eagle-2 at 1 (fringe shot from 26'7" away). Thomas' birdie split included five from between nine and 47 feet, posting 1.357 putts per GIR and 4.328 SG: Putting with 23 total putts. He finished T5 here last year after being the 54-hole leader by a shot (69-66-66-72).
Mar 3 - 4:24 PM

Top-ranked and World No. 4 Justin Thomas authored a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of The Honda Classic to match 54-hole leader and playing competitor Luke List on 8-under 272, and then defeated him with a birdie on the first playoff hole, the par-5 18th. UPDATE: Thomas nudges one spot to a tied-career-high 3rd in OWGR.

The 24-year-old, a pre-tourney 10/1 outright, claims his eighth PGA TOUR title in 101 career events (97 pro), third come from behind. It's his second win this season in seven starts, joining a P1 at THE CJ CUP, and is now 2-0 in sudden death. The reigning FedExCup champ improves to 2-for-4 at the Honda, bettering a T3 in 2016 two tries ago, and moves to No. 1 in the FEC standings. After kicking off with 67-72 and week-tying-low 65, he began T2, one back. The Jupiter, Florida, resident hit nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, outpacing a lone bogey-5 at hole 9 with three birdies at 3, 13 and 18. In extra time, he reached in two, and 2-putted from 39'2", while List, forced to layup, missed birdie from 17'3". For the week, Thomas totaled 15 birdies versus five bogeys and one double, and ranked 1st in SG: Approach, Scrambling and SG: Tee-to-Green.
Feb 25 - 6:38 PM

Top-ranked and World No. 4 Justin Thomas rebounded with a week-tying-low 5-under-par 34-31=65 in the third round of The Honda Classic to post 6-under 204, up five spots on the live leaderboard to T2 and the new clubhouse leader. UPDATE: With play completed, Thomas is T2, one back of leader Luke List, who he'll be paired with in the final twosome on Sunday.

After kicking off in 67 and birdie-less 72, the 24-year-old began T7 on 1-under, two back of co-leaders Luke List and Jamie Lovemark. He found eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 3.353 strokes approaching-the-green, currently No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 8.266. The Alabama product squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 6 (3-putt from 41'7"), smothered by six circles at 2, 3, 10, 14, 15 and 17, two from between 11 and 15 feet, adding a fringe-shot from 14'4" at 17. He recorded 1.692 putts per GIR and 0.675 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. Thomas is chasing an eighth TOUR title in his 101st career start. Two of his seven wins to date are come from behind, most recent: 2017 PGA Championship; came from two back; 3-under 68; won by two.
Feb 24 - 5:22 PM

Top-ranked and World No. 4 Justin Thomas sleepwalked to a birdie-less 2-over-par 35-37=72 in the second round of The Honda Classic, dropping four spots on the live leaderboard to T7 on 1-under 139, two back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Luke List.

The 24-year-old's lone blemish, a double bogey-6 at 16, was a 4-putt from 74'11". He surrounded that with 17 pars on five (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.997 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.589 tee-to-green. The reigning FedExCup champ went a perfect 6-for-6 in scrambling, but lost 0.727 strokes around-the-green. He recorded a dismal 2.167 putts per GIR, was T57 in Proximity to Hole at 38'3", and posted -0.399 SG: Putting, needing 32 total putts.
Feb 23 - 5:39 PM

Local resident Justin Thomas tackled PGA National's Champion Course in round one of The Honda Classic, escaping with a 3-under-par 33-34=67 to share early possession of the clubhouse lead, alongside fellow Florida residents Morgan Hoffmann and Daniel Berger.

Before the event, Thomas expressed a lot of confidence in the way his game is trending. He continued that strong play today, marking the eighth straight event where he's positioned himself inside the top 25 after R1. Thomas opened his day on the back nine and needed a pair of par-savers from outside 10 feet to keep his round from unfolding. After the early grind, he went on cruise control around the turn, circling four straight birdies after leaving the Bear Trap. That placed him in sole possession of the lead but tree troubles at the par-4 6th led to a bogey before he traded birdie-bogey at the 7th and 8th holes. While Thomas has missed cuts in two of his three visits to PGA National, he also sandwiched a T3 in those results. Given the current state of his game, there is no reason to expect much of a fade, if any, throughout the week.
