Justin Thomas shoots course-record 61 to lead by six at BMW Championship

By

MEDINAH, IL. – Justin Thomas tied the course record in Thursday’s first round of the BMW Championship at Medinah Country Club.

He went four better and set the course record in Saturday’s third round.

After opening with five consecutive birdies, Thomas did his best work on the back nine of the No. 3 course at Medinah. He made eagles on the 10th – from 3 feet after a 5-wood from 260 yards – and the 16th – he holed out from 180 yards – and added birdies on the 14th and 17th to cap an 11-under-par 61 to grab a 6-shot lead through 54 holes at the BMW Championship.
