Thomas Gets in Matsuyama's Way Again
By The Associated Press
KAPALUA, HI - Justin Thomas is the lone reason Hideki Matsuyama hasn't won six straight tournaments.
Thomas held off Matsuyama to capture the PGA's SBS Tournament of Champions at Kapalua. Thomas closed with a 4-under 69 for a 22-under total, three shots better than Matsuyama.
The tournament turned on the next-to-last hole as Thomas carded a birdie while Matsuyama bogeyed to fall three strokes back.
Matsuyama has four victories and two runner-up finishes in his last six starts, losing both to Thomas.
