Thomas fires off a 63, shares lead with Leishman in Boston

Thomas fires off a 63, shares lead with Leishman in Boston”

Justin Thomas failed to birdie any of the par 5s on the TPC Boston and still turned in a tournament-best round of 8-under 63 on Sunday, giving him a share of the lead with Marc Leishman and setting up a Labor Day finish filled with some of the biggest names in golf at the Dell Technologies Championship. He saved par on No. 16, parred the last two and held a trophy for the fifth time on the season.

In Thomas' first couple of seasons after turning pro in late 2013, he netted just one victory, with a handful of opportunities slipping through his fingers.

"You can't really compare them, they are so, so different rounds, but in terms of ball-striking and overall control of my game that was up there with the best I've had all year", Thomas told Sky Sports. "Any time any of my friends win and I don't, I'm extremely happy for them, I'm pumped for them, I'm excited but I'm jealous".

Thomas took his tally to five USA tour victories for the season while was runner-up for the second consecutive playoffs event. "I got through over par and didn't get any coming in when I hit some good putts".

"It just was a great week because I felt like I didn't have my best stuff at the start of the week and that's just something I've gotten so much better at, and I'm proud of myself more than anything".

British Open champion Jordan Spieth (66), fellow American Grayson Murray (67) and Canada's Adam Hadwin (68) followed at 10-under 203.

"But I feel confident when I get in these situations like today, or like I did at the PGA, I feel like I can get it done".

No one does unless it's someone with the kind of long history of dominance Mickelson has, the kind of resume that even at the age of 47 makes his name closing in on you on the leaderboard a tight fix and a testing moment for an apple-cheeked 24-year-old like Thomas. You know, you have to put things into perspective. It also likely locked up PGA Tour player-of-the-year honors, and his five wins ties for the second-most in a year over the last decade, surpassed only by Tiger Woods' six in 2009.

"I have two events left".

Only the top-30 players are eligible to play in the Tour Championship, which takes place September 21-24 at the East Lake Golf Course in Atlanta, Georgia. Of course, Mickelson is not here for top-10 finishes. He wants to win, but he doesn't seem to have that sixth gear that Justin Thomas or Jordan Spieth have right now. The good news is that he's likely played himself into a spot on the Presidents Cup team with his showing this week.

And barring Spieth winning the final two FedEx Cup events to claim the $10 million bonus, Thomas became a heavy favorite to be voted PGA Tour player of the year. Casey has now finished in the top 5 in his last five Playoff events, while Rahm has never finished outside the top 5 in a Playoff event in his young career.
