Justin Thomas Joins Golf’s 59 Club At Sony Open

Justin Thomas became just the seventh man ever to shoot a sub-60 round on the PGA Tour on Thursday at the Sony Open in Hawaii with an 11-under par 59 that was punctuated by an 18th-hole eagle to hit golf’s magic number.

Playing alongside Jordan Spieth and Daniel Berger, Thomas eagled his first hole and then bogeyed the par-3 11th, his second hole of the day, before playing the final 16 holes in 10-under par. 

The round easily put Thomas in first place through 18 holes at 2017’s second event. Hudson Swafford’s 8-under par 62 has him three shots back, and Rory Sabbatini is four shots back after a Thursday 63.
