FedEx Cup Champion Justin Thomas is just not in the mood to give his great run a halt, as the 2018 season for PGA Tour has kicked in Thomas has become more matured as a player. He now co-leads CJ Cup with Scott Brown at nine-under 207.

Thomas led the field on Day 1 with his round of nine-under 72, his second round 74 took him to shared fourth spot and his two-under 70 today has put him on the lead with Scott Brown. Brown who posted rounds of 66, 70 and 71 was lying at the second spot on Friday.
Thomas’s 70 today consisted five birdies, one bogey and a double-bogey on the par-4, 8th and Brown were safe with three birdies and two bogeys in his round of one-under 71.
What made the highlight from Justin’s round was his monster 461 yards drive on the par-5, 12th.

Anirban Lahiri the crusader

Lahiri led the field for a short duration before posting the only bogey on the 16th, dropping him down to second and later to a shared third spot. His round today helped him climb 12 spots up from a shared 15th to a shared third spot with Marc Leishman.
Lahiri posted four birdies and a lone bogey on the par-4, 16th to finish his day and enter the final round with a happy face and a lot of hope.
Following the leaders, by two-shots are Anirban Lahiri and BMW Championship winner Marc Leishman at seven-under 209.
