UPDATE No. 10 (6:10 p.m. ET): Justin Thomas indeed finishes this one off. Here’s a recap of how he got it done…

UPDATE No. 9 (5:05 p.m. ET): The lead is now five.

Everybody else is falling off, as Thomas cruises at 15 under. He’s five up with four to play over Jason Day and Kyle Stanley. Dustin Johnson and Thorbjorn Olesen both shoot 64 to currently sit in a tie for second as well at 10 under.

Rory McIlroy was undone by three straight bogeys from Nos. 8-10 and is 8 under and T-7.

UPDATE No. 8 (4:50 p.m. ET): A birdie at No. 13, and Thomas now leads by four.

UPDATE No. 7 (4:40 p.m. ET): And the lead is back to three after Day misses a 5-footer for par at No. 13.

Justin Thomas looks unflappable. He’s made just one bogey today and has never wavered. Don’t think his lead has ever been less than two today.

UPDATE No. 6 (4:30 p.m. ET): The lead is down to two as Jason Day starts the back nine birdie-birdie-birdie to reach 12 under.

Tightening up a little, but Thomas is still in control with six to play.

UPDATE No. 5 (4:02 p.m. ET): JT heads to the back nine with a three-shot lead after a birdie, a bogey and seven pars on the front nine.

That’s very steady work as he remains 14 under. DJ missed an 8-footer for birdie at the 17th to get within two. He remains T-2 at 11 under with Kyle Stanley (through 10). Rory McIlroy bogeys Nos. 8 and 9 to drop five back to 9 under.

UPDATE No. 4 (3:30 p.m. ET): Justin Thomas is hanging tough and is still three ahead.

But those lurking have a ton of talent. DJ has cooled off, parring his last four holes. He has jumped, though, to a tie for second at 11 under. He’s 7 under for his round and just three back of JT. Rory McIlroy is also three back after a birdie, a bogey and five pars to start.

UPDATE No. 3 (2:20 p.m. ET): Dustin Johnson birdies the eighth as well and he’s out in 6-under 29!

That has the World No. 1 at 10 under. He’s suddenly T-3 and within four. He was 10 back and T-22 to start the day.

UPDATE No. 2 (1:45 p.m. ET): DJ birdies five of his first six holes, and the World No. 1 is suddenly just five back at 9 under. You never know…

UPDATE No. 1 (12:20 p.m. ET): Low scores are still out there, as Charl Schwartzel proved. The South African was 8 under on his round through 14 and threatening the course record of 61. He then bogeys 16 and 17, but he birdies 18 to finish out a 7-under 63. He jumps 22 spots to a tie for 45th at Even par thanks to that phenomenal closing round.
