Tommy Fleetwood’s season got off to a less than ideal start this weekend, as he finished his weekend 11 shots off winner Justin Thomas.

Despite shooting under-par on all four days, he was far behind the form of the front pack; who were already out of touching distance by Friday evening.

His best round came on Sunday, carding a round of 68 at four under-par. This was enough to take the Southport-born player to T20, but he will no doubt be disappointed as he only picked up 40.08 FedEx Cup points, leaving him 106th overall.

As a reward for finishing T20, Fleetwood will pocket an unreal $103,285 to start his campaign. His next event comes just this week in the Zozo Championship, Tokyo, which is the first ever to be sanctioned PGA Tour event in Japan.

The CJ Cup winner, Justin Thomas, shot an excellent score of -20 for the tournament, finishing two shots ahead of his closest competition, Danny Lee.  This is the second time the 26-year-old has won this tournament, which is increasingly impressive considering its conception was only three years ago. This result takes him to third in the overall FedEx Cup rankings.

Other notable results include Jordan Spieth finishing T8 with a round of -12. Northern Irish hero, Graeme McDowell, and Englishman Ian Poulter, finished T10 after positive -10 performances to kick off their FedEx Cup campaigns. Former Masters champion, Danny Willett, carded a disappointing -3, leaving him T46 and with only 8.25 points.
