LAST YEAR: Justin Thomas started the new year by claiming the second of his five victories in the 2016-17 season, beating Hideki Matsuyama by three strokes. Thomas started with three straight scores of 6-under-par 67 at Kapaula before finishing it off with a 69. A week later, he won the Sony Open in Hawaii by a whopping seven strokes after opening with an 11-under 59, joining South Africa’s Ernie Els (2003) as the only players to sweep the first two events of the year in Hawaii. Thomas will try to become the first back-to-back winner in the TOC since Geoff Ogilvy of Australia in 2009-10.
