2017 - Week 1 Winner

Justin Thomas (ranked 12th by Golf Predictor) won the SBS Tournament of Champions. The 23 year old American won his third tour title and first on home soil in Hawaii. Despite having built up a five shot lead with five to play, Thomas was almost caught by the in-form Hideki Matsuyama after the Japanese star eagled the fourteenth and Thomas double bogeyed the fifteenth. However, he steadied the ship and a strong finish saw him win by three shots. Our top ranked golfer, Jason Day, finished in tied 12th on his return from his back injury. Overall, we had eleven of the top fourteen plus ties (11/16) in this restricted field event.

There was no event on the European Tour this week.
