3 Best Shots From Sunday’s Final Round at Kapalua

Justin Thomas is the first to capture two tournament titles in the 2016-2017 regular season with wins at the CIMB Classic and the SBS Tournament of Champions. The 23-year-old Thomas carded a final round 69 to win by three shots clear of Hideki Matsuyama.

Here are the best shots from the final round at Kapalua.

Justin Thomas Approach Shot on 17

Thomas only had a one-shot lead coming into the 17th until he walked his approach shot from 226 yards to within a couple of feet from 226 yards. Thomas went on to convert the birdie, and then birdied the par-5 finishing hole to capture his 2nd win of the season.

Hideki Matsuyama Holes Out For Eagle at 14

Matsuyama struggled on the front nine but a birdie at the 11th and an eagle on 14 got him right back in the mix. The 24-year-old Japanese star has won 4 out of the last 6 start, with his two other finishes being runner-ups to Thomas.

William McGirt Stiffs Tee Shot on 2

McGirt hit his tee shot on the 215 yard par-3 2nd to a couple of feet which propelled him to a strong opening-nine of 32. However, a poor back nine of 41 dropped him six spots down the leaderboard to a T9 finish.
