The playoff victory that Thomas received is definitely a resume booster as he already has three Tour titles to his credit along with a major, a 63, a 59 among other great scores and achievements.
His contenders for the Player of the Year position are close to him, however; for instance, Spieth had a great run at the Grand Slam of the year 2015. Thomas has had wins five times that makes him the only fourth player to have this achievement since 1960. It definitely puts him in a similar league to others like Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus.
Spieth was able to get the FedEx Cup in 2015 and that made it memorable for him. Thomas currently holds the number two position in the ranks. For those who are gearing in maximizing their points as the playoff events come to a close, they need to play in a similar way as Justin did. He worked towards a clinic in every facet and tried to finish top 11 in terms of strokes. He approached the green and the putting and went around it as well. Of course, there would be missing but that is the kind of play and moves that players need to work towards.
The playoffs definitely bring out the best in the stars as has been made evident by Rickie Fowler, Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Patrick Reed, Jason Day and others.
Spieth gained a runner up finish in the TPC Boston tournament; he had a lead of five shots over Dustin Johnson that he was unable to make use of. He admitted that he was able to finish off the way he planned, though there was room for improvement.
Marc Leishman was another contender who suffered two miscues that were costly to him. Besides the playoffs, there is the upcoming list for the Presidents Cup that the players are working towards as well.
