He beat Jordan Spieth, who finished runner-up for the second successive week, to claim his fifth victory of an astonishing year. Keeping his mistakes to a minimum, Thomas outlasted them both by closing with a 5-under 66 for a three-shot victory in the Dell Technologies Championship.

"It just was a great week because I felt like I didn't have my best stuff at the start of the week and that's just something I've gotten so much better at, and I'm proud of myself more than anything", Thomas said.

"I could have easily made pars on all those holes".

Thomas made only two bogeys all week, the last one putting him in a three-way tie with seven holes to play.

Leishman faltered early on the back nine.

But Spieth, who finished second at 14 under, shot 2 over on the back nine, leaving the door open for the reigning PGA Championship victor.

Spieth has now finished second in the first two Playoffs events.

World number one Dustin Johnson (66) and overnight leader Jon Rahm of Spain (71) trailed by another stroke at 204.

Next they spend a day at Mount Arafat, where the prophet Muhammad gave his final sermon, to ask for forgiveness. In 1990, 1426 pilgrims died in a stampede inside a tunnel after its ventilation system broke down.

Thomas and Spieth have been competing against each other since they were 13 and playing junior golf. "So just go there and play the golf course, and, then, once that week comes, then I'll be hopefully ready to go". "It's tough when you've got somebody that's that good and hot and can close". "I hit my irons really well, and my short game was good if I needed it". The top 70 players on the playoff points list after this event advance to the BMW Championship, set for September 14-17 at Conway Farms Golf Club in IL.

So good, in fact, that from his ninth hole on Saturday through the first nine Monday, Leishman carded 17 birdies and not a single bogey. Though he escaped with a bogey after a 14-foot-8-inch putt found bottom, the groove he had enjoyed over the past 48 hours was fading fast.

Spieth then had a bogey at the 12th with a birdie at No. 13, and he bogeyed Nos.

Later, after a poor tee shot at the par-three 16th, he received a free drop from a poor lie in heavy rough, because a sprinkler head interfered with his stance. "You're not going to keep pace and shoot, you know, 54", he said with a smile. But then it all changed when Spieth missed the green at No. 14, did well to hit a flop shot to 15 feet and narrowly missed his par putt.

They were at 12-under 201 with no room for error on a leaderboard that was packed with some of golf's best players. It was Mickelson's first top 10 since June, but it may have been enough to earn a captain's pick from Steve Stricker on Wednesday for one of the final two U.S. Presidents Cup spots.

It was however Leishman's second best finish of the year behind his win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational but it was a case of what might have been, especially having controlled the tournament through nine holes.

Leishman, a two-time Tour victor, entered the week ranked 20th in the FedExCup standings but is now projected to jump into the top five heading into the BMW Championship.
