2018 Sony Open in Hawaii - January 8th-14th at Waialae Country Club

Justin Thomas set a PGA TOUR scoring record at Waialae Country Club, cruising to a seven-shot victory over Justin Rose in the 2017 Sony Open in Hawaii. After winning the SBS Tournament of Champions on the prior Sunday on Maui, Thomas, 23, fired a first-round 59 Thursday. He was the seventh TOUR player — and youngest by nearly four years — to break 60. Thomas closed with a 66 during the final round to finish at 27-under-par 253, breaking the TOUR’s 72-hole scoring record by a shot. Our 2017 Sony Open in Hawaii champion takes home $1,080,000. Thomas also became the first to open the year with back-to-back wins in Hawaii since Ernie Els in 2003. Thomas, 49-under par in 2017, was ranked 12th in the world heading into the Sony Open. He now has four PGA TOUR victories, three in his last five starts. He also set TOUR and tournament records for lowest 36-hole total (123) and tied Steve Stricker for lowest 54-hole PGA TOUR score (188). That was five shots better than the 54-hole Sony Open record. Thomas took a seven-stroke lead into the final round, the largest third-round advantage on the TOUR in 12 years. It was the biggest lead at Waialae Country Club since Jack Nicklaus was six up going into the final day in 1974.
