Thomas Wins BMW Championship


Justin Thomas has the No. 1 seed in the FedEx Cup finale after capturing the BMW Championship at Medinah.

Thomas entered the final round with a six-shot lead, but he was only two strokes ahead until he carded three birdies in a five-hole stretch on the back nine.

He closed with a 4-under 68 for a three-shot win over Patrick Cantlay, who fired a 65.

The top 30 advance to the Tour Championship.

Masters champion Tiger Woods will not be among them to defend his title at East Lake.

Canadian, Corey Conners of Listowel played well enough at the B-M-W Championship to earn a full tour card next season.

Conners tied for seventh with Lucas Glover at 15 under.

After starting the season with only a partial P-G-A Tour card, Conners has now earned a spot in all four majors in next season, the World Golf Championships and, of course, a full tour card for 2020.
