Justin Thomas won the PGA Tour with a $ 10.5 million prize fund in Memphis. Thomas won at -13, earned $ 1.82 million, and from third jumped to the top of the world table (OWGR).
But before that, the American golfer had a big disadvantage in the score after 54 holes. At that time, he was four strokes below Brendon Todd’s top-12 table, and An Byeong Hun, Rickie Fowler, and Brooks Koepka followed in turn by a decreasing stroke. Thomas teamed up with famous player Phil Mickelson.
In the last two holes, Thomas kept par and reached the finish line at -13, and Koepka birdie and double bogey should be three strokes. This is the 13th PGA Tour title of the 27-year-old star. Since 1960, he is one of the three youngest golfers to reach this milestone, behind only Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus.
Koepka lost the title because of a decline in the last three holes
Thomas peaked at OWGR on May 13, 2018, and held this position for four weeks. He won the major PGA Championship 2017, FedEx Cup, received the double title of “Excellent Golfer” in the same year of the PGA Tour and the American Professional Golf Association (PGAA).
Koepka finished T2 at -10 with Berger, Lewis, and 50-year-old Phil Mickelson. Each person in this group receives $ 695,000.
Unfortunately, it happened again with Todd. In the Travelers Championship near the end of June, Todd kept the top of the table after 54 holes, but hit 75 strokes in the round and finished T11.
The same happened this week, but Todd came in the last T15, receiving $ 131,000. This group also has Rickie Fowler. Due to hitting 73 sticks through the last 18 holes, An Byeong Hun fell 10 steps, to the T12 group at -8, getting $ 166,666. On that one step is the T6 group of six people, earning 268,333 USD.
