FedEx Cup Playoffs: Justin Thomas Collects 10th PGA Tour Win at BMW Championship

JUSTIN THOMAS CARDED A BLISTERING 61 at Medinah Country Club on Saturday (highlights above) en route to a 3-shot victory at the BMW Championship, the second of three legs in the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

Thomas finished 25-under for the tournament, with rounds of 65, 69, 61 and 68. Patrick Cantlay finished second.

"Patrick played unbelievably, put a lot of heat on me," Thomas said. "In the end, it could have been good for me. It kept me focused, kept my head down."

He added: "I was really nervous going into today. I remembered that it's really hard to win a golf tournament, and I'm glad that I was able to do so."

Now it's on to East Lake Golf Club in Atlanta for the playoff finale, the Tour Championship, where a field of 30 will battle to be the FedEx Cup champion.

As part of the new playoff format, Thomas will step foot on East Lake as the No. 1 seed, and will be spotted a 2-shot advantage over the No. 2 seed. He will be 10-under on the leaderboard before he hits his opening shot.

"I can certainly say I never slept on a Wednesday lead," Thomas noted.
