Thomas in line for $15-million PGA payout

Thomas in line for $15-million PGA payout

The 2019 Tour Championship starts Thursday at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta.

The back nine ended up being even better.

"I think it has the potential to be extremely intense leaderboard come the final round".

Justin Thomas is in the driver's seat to secure a $US15 million payday this week after his BMW Championship win sent him to the top of the US PGA Tour's FedEx Cup standings. Kokrak's 209th career PGA Tour start ended with a T-19 finish at Medinah, and after signing his card he was sitting at No. 31 in the standings.

"I'm just going to go out there and try and play as well as I can", Thomas said.

He entered the week 38th in the FedEx standings but put himself in a huge hole with scores of 71 in the first two rounds before a Saturday 67 gave him hope.

He birdied the fourth and fifth holes on Sunday, bogeyed the next and responded at No. 7 with another birdie that would be his last of the season.

At next month's BMW PGA Championship, the new Pace of Play timing system will be trialled. Previous year culminated in a pretty special moment for me. "I was like, 'I've done this a couple times guys but, thank you.' That's what I was saying on the way over here". A week after causing considerable concern about his future with a withdrawal after just one round at the Northern Trust due to an oblique strain, Woods showed significant improvement. I was able to get back in and get my stuff. "I'm going to have a have another good round and see if we can make some history". I really found it and hit a lot of really quality shots and putts those last eight holes, but I struggled and it's, I think, very impressive the fact I got a four-under round out of how I hit it today'. I hit the ball so bad to start the day. He finished tied for 37th, well short of the top-11 finish he was projected to need to advance and defend his Tour Championship title next week at East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta. The former world no. 1 (2018) finished 25 under par to relegate Patrick Cantlay (USA, -22) and Hideki Matsuyama (JPN, -20) to second and third places.

The major question for Woods, though, is the President's Cup. He ended previous year ranked 13th in the world, climbed as high as No. 5 and is expected to settle at No. 8 following the BMW.

"I forgot how hard it is to win".

Mickelson's hotel, the Eaglewood Resort & Spa, was struck by lightning around 8 a.m. when a chimney blew out and caught on fire. Thomas then helped out by hitting his second to the par-5 10th under a tree, hitting left-handed to get it out and making bogey.
