Justin Thomas claims two-shot victory at Nine Bridges

October 17-20
Nine Bridges, Jeju Island, Korea
$9,750,000
Round 1, Round 2, Round 3


Justin Thomas carded a final-round 67 to win the CJ Cup for the second time in three years in South Korea.

The American, champion at Nine Bridges two years ago, made seven birdies and two bogeys to move to 20 under and claim victory by two shots.

Thomas and Danny Lee shared the lead heading into the final day, but the world number five held off the South Korean-born New Zealander.


Thomas produced birdies at the first and third and, despite dropping a shot on the fourth, turned in 33 with back-to-back gains.

Two more birdies, on the 12th and 14th, put him in the outright lead before consecutive bogeys cost Lee.

Thomas bounced back from a bogey on the penultimate hole with a birdie on the last to secure his 11th PGA Tour title.

Lee finished second on 18 under, three shots in front of Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama, last year’s runner-up Gary Woodland and Cameron Smith of Australia.

Englishman Tyrrell Hatton was tied for sixth with Byeong Hun An, seven shots behind Thomas, while Jordan Spieth was 12 under with Graeme McDowell and Ian Poulter a further two shots back.
