PGA TOUR VIDEO: Justin Thomas Is on Top of the World After Comeback Victory in Memphis

HEADING INTO THE YEAR’S FIRST MAJOR, Justin Thomas is the new No. 1.

Thomas captured his third victory this season and 13th of his PGA Tour career at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational in Memphis. He shot rounds of 66-67-66-65 to finish 13-under-par at TPC Southwind.

Every victory is special, but this one was probably a little sweeter.

“It means a lot,” Thomas said, “especially with how I felt like I did it.

“In the past, I struggled with coming from behind. I got wrapped up in how far I was behind and how many people.”

Defending champion Brooks Koepka made a run but came up short. He finished in a tie for second with three others: Daniel Berger, Tom Lewis and Phil Mickelson.

The PGA Championship begins on Thursday at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco.
