Justin Thomas Wins Second Straight PGA Event

Justin Thomas closed out his dominant two-tournament stretch in Hawaii with a 65 on Sunday to set the all-time PGA Tour scoring record in a 72-hole event at 253.
His score bests the mark of 254 set by Tommy Armour III at the 2003 Texas Open. Thomas finished at 27 under for the four-day event and won by seven over Justin Rose. Thomas also set the lowest 36-hole scoring record (123) and tied the 54-hole record (188).
On Sunday, Thomas made a bogey at the fourth hole and didn't make his first birdie until No. 8. But from there, he went on to make five more including one at the final hole of the tournament to shoot his 5-under 65. His scores for the week were 59, 64, 65 and 65 for the 253 total.
Thomas pulled off the Hawaii double with his Tournament of Champions triumph last week. He is the only golfer to win both Hawaii tournaments to start a PGA Tour season other than Ernie Els in 2003.
The No. 5 player in the world, Jordan Spieth, was 35 under at the two Hawaii tournaments. He lost by a combined 14 strokes to Thomas.
