Thomas wins CIMB Classic
American golfer Justin Thomas won the CIMB Classic in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday by one shot with a final round 66 for his first title on the PGA Tour.
The 22-year-old started the day with a share of the lead with countryman Brendan Steele on 20-under.
He had a solid start to hole two birdies on the front nine. On the 10th hole, he fired in an eagle followed by a birdie on the 13th.
Then on the 14th he had a nightmare firing a double bogey but recovered to birdie the final three holes to win the tournament on 26-under par.
On the final day, Australia’s Adam Scott made a strong challenge firing a nine-under 63 to get within one shot of the leader.
Steele finished on 24-under for joint-third while Kevin Na missed a birdie on the 16th to finish two shots off the pace with a five-under 67.
