Justin Thomas goes unconscious as he leads the CJ Cup

In South Korea

It may be the start of a new season for Justin Thomas, but he is simply carrying on from where he left off as he shoots a 9 under par 63 to take the lead at the inaugural CJ Cup at Nine Bridges in South Korea.

His 63 included not one eagle, but two of the rare creatures. Added to them were seven birdies, and two bogeys, one of which came on the opening hole.

Starting on the 10th his run from the 12th through to the 18th was an incredible 3,3,3,3,3,2,3. He made the turn in 29, and went on to bag three further birdies, including one at the last, as well as another bogey.

“It was a weird day,” Thomas said. “It started off with a really badly played bogey and then I went on a seven-hole stretch where I kind of went unconscious and that was pretty much most of my round.”

Thomas leads Patrick Reed, Marc Leishman, Scott Brown, Chez Reavie and Gavin Green by three strokes, whilst Jason Day is five strokes back at 4-under par.
