Justin Thomas Wins PGA Championship
Justin Thomas shot a three under par 68 Sunday to take a two stroke win for his first major title, the PGA Championship.
For the 24 year old Thomas, it was his fourth win on the tour this year, but his first major championship. Thomas shot a 3 under par 68 in the final round at Quail Hollow in Charlotte, NC.
There was a logjam at the top of the leaderboard as the field went to the back nine, with five golfers at -7. Thomas had birdies on 10, 13 and 17 and, by the time he took the bogey on 18, he had a two shot lead.
Thomas shot a two over par 73 in the first round, but followed that with scores of 66, 69 and 68 to take a two shot win over Francisco Molinari (67), Patrick Reed (67) and Louis Oosthuisen (70).
Kevin Kisner, who led or had a share of the lead in the first three rounds, ballooned to a 74 and finished tied for seventh, four shots back.
