Nobody can accuse Justin Thomas of not giving it absolutely everything as he fought to extend his season on the PGA Tour

Thomas came into the week needing a three-way tie for fourth at the Wyndham Championship if he was to make the playoffs. 

He began the final day nine strokes off the lead and for the majority of the day it felt like it wasn't to be. 

Thomas made one only birdie through his first 14 holes at Sedgefield Country Club, which came at the par-4 6th, the American holing a double-breaking putt from all of 38ft. 

Update: JT was the bubble boy, finishing 71st in the FedEx Cup standings


The former World No.1 put his foot on the pedal at the 15th, making an eagle which at the time put him in 70th in the FedEx Cup standings. 

A bogey at the par-3 16th followed, the wind switching on JT when he hit a 9-iron. "It sucked," he later said of the moment where he tried and failed to get up and down from 73ft. It made him the bubble boy. 

Thomas made par at the 17th before a truly wild finish. Thomas hit his tee shot way left and was stuck underneath a tree in the pine straw, needing to hit a monstrous hook to advance his ball towards the green. 

That he did, but he left himself short and needing to pitch in to guarantee a spot in the playoffs.

Then he nearly holed it. 

Thomas said he decided not to hit a 56 degree, instead trying to trap-draw a 60 closer to the pin to give it more of a chance of going in. 

This is how he reacted:

What Thomas said:

"I think the biggest thing for me is I was in a great place mentally this week, which I haven't necessarily been in the last, you know, the last couple months. I mean, last three, four, five months. I handled the moment really well.
"I felt like I obviously would have liked a couple shots, putts, whatever it was here or there, drives over again, but I made the best out of every situation that I had.
"And just, I mean, fought as hard as I possibly could. That's kind of what I've done my whole life, my whole career and I didn't want to stop here."
