Thomas hoping to end slump at Southwind
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Defending champion Justin Thomas is trying to break out of a bit of a slump at the FedEx St. Jude Invitational. Xander Schauffele is trying to build on his victory Sunday in the Tokyo Olympics.
Thomas, ranked fifth in the world, won the the World Golf Championship event last year at TPC Southwind by three strokes over Phil Mickelson, 2019 winner Brooks Koepka, Daniel Berger and Tom Lewis. Since winning The Players Championship in mid-March at TPC Sawgrass, Thomas has only three top-25 finishes in 10 events.
"Other than one week, really one weekend, the results haven't been there," said Thomas, also the 2018 winner. "It's been the hardest I've had to work and the most I've struggled, but I'm just trying to get out of that. I feel like I've been a lot closer this month or so to playing some really, really good golf."
