49-under par the last two years.
Final Thoughts from the CIMB Classic
Four shots back? No sweat.
Another edition with plenty of birdies and plenty of action to keep gamers awake into the wee hours of the morning ET on Sunday morning.
Making birdies shouldn’t be this easy but Justin Thomas has sure made it look that way. He has no problem overpowering this layout and he obviously sees the line clearly on the greens.
In fantasy golf we love trends and trends that come through at the end of the week. Pros and Joes should have been all over JT in every format after his performance last year. They were rewarded for their faith. Some weeks it appears easy when it goes according to Hoyle!
Justin Thomas (WIN): Make it three top 10’s in a row!
Adam Scott (T-10): Make it five top 10’s in a row ON TOUR! Nice bounce back from his MC last week in Japan.
Paul Casey (T-21): That’s not going to cause me to jump ship after four straight top 10’s.
Hideki Matsuyama (2nd): Backed up his win on the Japan Tour nicely, as expected.
Ryo Ishikawa (T-10): Saw his ace form on the Japan Tour translate to a top 10 on the big boy circuit.
Scott Piercy (T-10): Backed up his podium (T-3) at Safeway last week.
Ryan Moore (T-17): First time outside of the top 10 in four tries (Win, Win and T-10). He missed T-10 by one shot. #CourseHorse.
Si Woo Kim (T-10): Choo! Choo! All aboard!
Caught My Eye
Scott Hend (T-7): That’s four top 10’s in his last seven worldwide starts.
Keegan Bradley (6th): Second week in a row in this column…
Ian Poulter (T-17): Great start in Macau but faded after a long layoff; played his last 54 in 11-under this week; playing Sanderson Farms this week.
James Hahn (9th): He was sixth last year. Noted.
