Thomas stretches lead at Sony Open
Justin Thomas made a 15-foot birdie putt on the final hole Saturday for a 5-udner 65 to tie the 54-hole score record on the PGA Tour and build a seven-shot lead going into the final round of the Sony Open.
No one has ever lost a PGA Tour event with a seven-shot lead, and Thomas has given no indication that will change.
His goal was to not drop any shots on another calm day at Waialae, and he wound up stretching his lead as he goes for a sweep of Hawaii. That last birdie putt put Thomas at 22-under 188, tying the mark Steve Stricker set at the 2010 John Deere Classic.
Thomas got into the record book with an eagle on his final hole in each of the previous two rounds at Waialae — a 59 on Thursday for the eighth sub-60 round in tour history, and the 36-hole scoring record Friday.
He had another chance on the par-5 18th until his second shot clipped a palm frond and came up well short.
