ANY IDEA WHO SAID THIS? “He’s a long, long, long way from playing golf. He’s a long, long way from hitting drivers. He’s a long way from hitting enough golf balls to get himself in position to play golf. He’s a long way from playing 18 holes of golf. But one thing is for sure, Tiger Woods is a lot closer than he was yesterday. And I’m on record as saying if he can play and he can walk and he can complete 72 holes, that he can still win again.”

BRAIN TEASER: This player improved his score by four strokes in each of the first three rounds of the Dell Technologies Championship. Who did it?

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A YEAR MAKES: Justin Thomas started the PGA Tour season at No. 34 in the world with all of one PGA Tour victory. He won for the fifth time on Monday, including his first major at the PGA Championship. Now he is No. 4 in the world!

HOT AIR: Galvin Green has introduced its 2017 Autumn/Winter Insula Lite outerwear range. It incorporates built-in air chambers warmed by body heat, while also allowing excess heat and moisture to escape, according to the company. This creates long-lasting insulation and air flow to maintain ideal body temperature.

“Our layering system continually evolves, helping players perform their best in all conditions,” stated Andrew Creed, President of Galvin Green USA. “The new Insula Lite pieces are perfect examples of this innovation, allowing for comfortable play into autumn and winter to extend golfers’ seasons.”

WINNER’S CLUBS: “Any time any of my friends win and I don't, I'm extremely happy for them, I'm pumped for them, I'm excited but I'm jealous,” said Justin Thomas after his fifth win this season. Safe to say, there are a few that are equally jealous of him now. Thomas made only two bogeys for the entire tournament to go along with 17 birdies and an eagle. “I feel like we're very similar caliber of player, and I just got a couple years of experience head start. You want to get yourself in those positions, and you learn a lot from wins and losses,” said Jordan Spieth. “We grew up together. We roomed together when we were 14 years old. He's one of my best friends in the whole world. We can share experiences with each other that we can't really describe or explain to anybody else that's our age, or very few, I should say, and it creates a unique relationship.” Thomas has served the golf world in 2017 and should he need any assistance, you couldn’t ask for a better mentor that Spieth. However, it appears the only thing standing in Thomas’ way, would be Thomas himself. Here is what Justin Thomas had in the bag to win the 2017 Dell Technologies Championship:

Driver: Titleist 917D2 (8.5)
Fairway Woods: Titleist 917F2 (15.0), 915Fd (18.0) 
Irons: 716 CB 4-iron, 718 MB (5-9)
Wedges: SM6 pitching (46), SM5 gap (52) and sand (56), SM6 lob (60)
Putter: Scotty Cameron X5
Ball: Pro V1x
Shoe: FJ ICON MyJoys
Glove: FJ Pure Touch Limited

Justin Thomas’– Numbers for the week:
Eagles: 1
Birdies: 17
Pars: 52
Bogeys: 2
Double Bogeys: 0
Cumulative Score: 267
