Look out, golf world. Justin Thomas is moving up—and fast.
Thomas collected his fifth PGA Tour victory of the 2016-17 season on Monday at the Dell Technologies Championship in Norton, Massachusetts. He shot a 66 in the final round to win by three strokes over runner-up Jordan Spieth. Thomas also climbed to fourth in the world golf rankings and second behind Spieth in the FedExCup Standings with two playoff events to go.
Thomas praised his caddie Jimmy Johnson after it was over.
“Jimmy does such a good job of keeping me patient,” Thomas told Golf Channel. “We stay within every shot. Whatever happens we don’t worry about what other guys are doing. All we are trying to do is hit the next shot as best we can. He has helped me so much. We’ve had a great year, and there are two more events to try to finish this off.”
According to PGATOUR.COM, Thomas averaged 307.8 yards off the tee and reached 70.83 percent of the greens in regulation. He also led the field in scrambling, getting up and down 20 of 21 times at TPC Boston.
Thomas is a Titleist man. Here’s a look at his setup for the Dell Technologies Championship.
