Justin Thomas successfully defends CIMB Classic title


The 23-year-old American capitalised on overnight leader Anirban Lahiri's quadruple bogey nine on the par-five third hole to retake a lead he had held over the first two days before easing clear to win by three shots with a 23-under total.

"I didn't feel great over the ball", he said.

The Australian however preceded by a stroke American Keegan Bradley (68), author of a cumulative score of minus-16.

Meanwhile, Thomas made four more birdies, including three on the back nine, to lock up his second PGA Tour title.

A confident Korda, on the other hand, shot six birdies, making up for a nightmare start on the previous day, where she dropped four shots in her first seven holes. "It's very disappointing. I would have obviously liked to have gotten over the line, but it's a tough pill to swallow". He said, kind of just stay patient.It is a big word for me to say, patient, it is a huge word. Lahiri almost ended the day level with Thomas, however, but the 2015 Asian Tour Order of Merit champion faltered at the finish with a double-bogey seven on the par-five 18th hole.
