Matsuyama 23rd as Thomas wins Dell Technologies Championship

Xavier grad joins Jordan Spieth, Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus as the only players under 25 to win a major and five tour events in the same season.

And they continue to go back and forth, the most recent edition a final-round shootout at the Dell Technologies Championship that did what so rarely happens in sports - exceed expectations.

Spieth has now finished second in the first two Playoffs events.

Thomas won by three shots at 17 under with a par on the par-five 18th hole.

Thomas struck a tree with his tee shot at the par-four 10th hole, but had an unobstructed view of the green with his second shot and made an easy par.

Meanwhile, Masters champion Sergio Garcia slammed and broke his putter after leaving an eagle putt woefully short on the fourth hole, but on his next shot, he sunk a 14-foot putt with his three-wood.

Paul Casey, who played in the final group previous year at TPC Boston, shot 67 and was one shot behind.

Fast-forward a few more years: Spieth turned pro first.

Earlier last week, Mickelson cryptically claimed his doctor had discovered some malady that had been disturbing his ability to focus and cured it. I think it's just a different situation when you kind of grow up (together). It's why the Big Names are the Big Names. because when their moments came, they won. The 10 players who qualified included Spieth, Thomas, Johnson, Rickie Fowler, Daniel Berger, Brooks Koepka, Kevin Kisner, Patrick Reed, Matt Kuchar and Kevin Chappell. But it's a long putt still from expectations to exhortations. But the 2016-17 campaign has been a real breakout for the 24yo with those five wins which included a successful defence of the CIMB, winning back to back in Hawaii at the start of the year before winning the USPGA and the victory on Monday.

A day after an 8-under 63 that included 12 3s pushed Thomas into a share of the lead, the 24-year-old closed matters out.

The victories keep piling up for Justin Thomas, and all that does is make him want more.

"(Caddie) Jimmy (Johnson) does such a good job keeping me patient.

"I just wanted to get myself in a position where I'm at least in range of the leaders", Johnson said Sunday following his round. You played well when you needed to.

"Really happy with the day, drove the ball well for the most part". "I really enjoy that".
