Justin Thomas shot a final-round 64 to become the first player on the PGA TOUR since Matt Every (2014-15 Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard) to successfully defend his tournament title.
Thomas led the CIMB Classic field in birdies (29) and finished fourth in putts per green in regulation (1.625) with a Scotty Cameron X5 Prototype that went in play during the FedExCup Playoffs at The Barclays.
Thomas used the putter to make back-to-back birdies on Nos. 16 and 17 that gave him a three-shot lead going into the last.
"Yeah, those putts on 16, 17, were nice to give me a little cushion going into 18," Thomas said.
A traditional blade user for most of his life, Thomas was drawn to the forgiveness and stability the high-MOI (moment of inertia) X5 mallet provided. The multi-material head design is comprised of a milled 303 Stainless Steel body and high-grade 6061 aluminum soleplate.
Aluminum was also added to the center section of the putter that extends down the wings. The addition of aluminum to the putter head allowed Scotty Cameron to hollow out the area under the soleplate and redistribute the material to the weighted wings to boost stability.
