Justin Thomas Wins 2017 PGA Championship at Quail Hollow

Justin Thomas charged up the leaderboard on Sunday to capture his first major championship win at the 99th PGA Championship. Thomas, who was at one point tied at seven-under with five others, roared past Kevin Kisner, Hideki Matsuyama, Chris Stroud, Patrick Reed, and Francesco Molinari.

Thomas provided a flurry of highlights with birdies on the ninth, 10th, 13th, and 17th holes with his only bogey coming at the 18th, a meaningless one that meant a 2-shot victory over Patrick Reed, Francesco Molinari and Louis Oosthuizen.

For Thomas, he now puts himself atop the list of player of the year candidates — ahead of Spieth with three wins, including a major, and Dustin Johnson and Matsuyama, both with three wins, including two World Golf Championship events.
