Justin Thomas claims victory at WGC-Bridgestone Invitational

American Justin Thomas has claimed victory at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in Ohio.

The world No.3 started the final day in a commanding position and managed to hold on to his lead, posting a one-under-par 69 final round.

Thomas finished at 15 under, four shots ahead of fellow American Kyle Stanley.


It’s Thomas’ third title victory in 2018 and ninth on the US PGA Tour and will see bank him a cool $US1.7 million cheque.

It’s likely he will move up one spot on the world rankings to No.2.

Jason Day was the best of the Australians, finishing on seven under despite a disastrous final round.

The Beaudesert boy was within two shots of Thomas on the back nine before notching up three bogeys and a double bogey on the final five holes to finish with a three-over-par 73 for the day.

Fellow Australian Marc Leishman was another shot back in a tie for 14th.

Queenslander Cameron Smith finished at four under.

Gold Coaster Adam Scott also had a shocker to end the day at four over.
