Justin Thomas has risen to a career high of third in the Official World Golf Rankings after besting Australian Marc Leishman on the second playoff hole at the inaugural CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges.
The young American’s scintillating form over the last 12 months is showing no signs of slowing down, but he has admitted he is now ready for a few weeks of rest.
He relied upon a full bag of Titleist equipment to claim his seventh PGA Tour title and recorded the longest drive of the week at 461 yards using his 917 D2 driver, albeit with a rather fortunate bounce from the cart path.
