Justin Thomas wins the BMW Championship.

     In a span of three holes around the turn at Medinah, Justin Thomas' six-shot lead shrunk to two. Thomas answered with two clutch wedge shots, two big putts and sailed to a 4-under 68 to secure a three-shot victory over Patrick Cantlay, who gave him a battle to the end with a 65.

"Patrick played unbelievably, put a lot of heat on me," Thomas said. "In the end, it could have been good for me. It kept me focused, kept my head down. ... I was really nervous going into today. I remembered that it's really hard to win a golf tournament, and I'm glad that I was able to do so."

His first victory since the World Golf Championship at Firestone 12 months ago moved him to the top of the FedEx Cup going into the Tour Championship, where he will start the tournament at 10-under par with a two-shot lead under the new scoring format as the final 30 players chase a $15 million first prize.

"I can certainly say I never slept on a Wednesday lead," Thomas said.

Cantlay, who made four straight birdies around the turn, secured the No. 2 position and will start at 8 under. Brooks Koepka will be 7 under, a staggered start all the way down to even par for the final five players.
