Thomas became the fourth player since 1960 to win 14 times on TOUR before turning 28, joining Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and Johnny Miller.

Thomas trailed by seven strokes after 36 holes and became the third player in PLAYERS Championship history to record a score of 132 or better over the final two rounds, joining Rocco Mediate (132/1996) and Fred Couples (132/1996).

Thomas played the par 5s in 14-under for the week, becoming the second player in tournament history to play the par 5s in 14-under or better and first since Geoff Ogilvy in 2004 (-14).

Bryson DeChambeau and Lee Westwood played in the final group on Sunday, becoming the first pair to make up the final pairing in the final round in consecutive tournaments on the PGA TOUR since Adam Scott and Vijay Singh in 2007.
