You didnt need to be a golf expert to see what was happening: Justin Thomas was playing great but he was also playing a lot. And then when he admitted two weeks ago after a so-so showing in Malaysia that he was tired, we knew for sure.

Which makes what happened this past week in South Korea all the more remarkable.

Thomas hit a significant number of bad shots over four days at the inaugural CJ Cup, yet still somehow won his sixth tournament of the past 12 months, mustering just enough on Sunday to edge Marc Leishman in a playoff.

I officially have nothing left in the tank, Thomas said on the Golf Channel immediately afterward. Now up to a career-best No. 3 in the world, Thomas is so gassed hes even bypassing the World Golf Championship event this week in China.
