Mr. Justin Thomas

Well that was a nice two weeks for Justin Thomas, capturing two consecutive PGA Tour titles. He once again put on a absolute driving clinic on Waialae’s tight fairways. As well as driving it far, he hit a lot of close approaches leaving him a lot of short birdies chances. Those to combinations lead him to a first round 59. Although 59 didn’t seem too hard as the week went on, two other players had a shot the historic score on Saturday and Sunday. Though they didn’t capture it, Kevin Kisner had a put on 18 for eagle but missed. While Chez Reavie had to only birdies a few holes to complete the round but blundered with a bogey on number six his back nine. But he still was able to finish off with a 61 and tied for eighth finish, which would give him a good pay week. Starting off well on the west coast swing is important because it somewhat sets the way for the rest of the year. As you can see JT started off his 2017-2018 season quite well with 3 wins within only a few months, so none to less he is set for the next five plus years. Not only did JT post a first round 59 and go on to win the golf tournament, he set scoring records everyday. After the first round 59 it didn’t look like JT would have any trouble finishing off the tournament. The course allows you to shoot five or six under each day, you’re probably going to win after shooting 59. I think the smallest the lead got to was a 5 shot lead. It may have gotten to three when JT was plus one and Justin Rose was close by on Sunday, but It was his tournament all week. But congrats to JT and take a few weeks off to let some others have a chance! Now we head into the Career Builder another birdies fest tournament where Patrick Reed shot three consecutive rounds of 63 on three different golf courses. Then we had Dufner escape the rocks on Alcatraz and go on to win in 2016. This year should be a great week, as we have many players playing hot and wanting to catch JT for the player of the year award.
