The Winning Setup: Justin Thomas at the Honda Classic

Titleist Brand Ambassador Justin Thomas (Pro V1x) earned the 8th PGA Tour victory of his career on Sunday, making birdie on the first hole of a playoff with Titleist golf ball loyalist Luke List (Pro V1) to capture the Honda Classic.

Thomas, last year's FedExCup winner and Player of the Year, fired a 5-under 65 on Saturday - which tied for the low round of the day and the tournament. He followed up with a 2-under-par 68 on Sunday, as he and List both birdied the par-5 18th hole to separate themselves from the field with scores of 8-under-par 272 in regulation play.

With the victory, Thomas now rises to the No. 1 position in the 2018 FedExCup race.

Congratulations, Justin!
