Thomas' 2016-17 PGA Tour season was lit

Justin Thomas was simply the best player on the PGA Tour in 2016-17, producing one of the best seasons ever recorded.

Here's a look back at some of his memorable moments from a phenomenal campaign.

Twice is nice

The Kentucky native got his first career PGA Tour win at the CIMB Classic in November of 2015, and then successfully defended his title last fall in Malaysia. Thomas fired rounds of 64-66-71-64 to beat Hideki Matusyama by three strokes. Thomas made 13 birdies over the final 23 holes of the tournament to win his second career title, becoming the first player since Matt Every in 2014-2015 to successfully defend.

Hawaiian dominance

When the tour resumed in early January in Hawaii, Thomas burst out of the gates, winning his third career title at the SBS Tournament of Champions, again besting Hideki Matsuyama by three shots. One week later at the Sony Open, Thomas became the youngest player to shoot 59 on the PGA Tour.

Thomas would go on to win the event by posting the lowest 72-hole score in PGA Tour history at 253.

History at Erin Hills

The third round of the U.S. Open produced a number of low scores, but Thomas went the lowest Saturday at Erin Hills. Thomas came to the par-5 18th needing an eagle to break the record for lowest score in relation to par in U.S. Open history. From 300 yards out, the Alabama alum nailed a 3-wood within 10 feet of the cup, where he would convert the eagle attempt to toss his name into the history books.

1st major title

The 24-year-old hadn't registered a win since his run in Hawaii, but broke out of the drought in a big way at the PGA Championship. Thomas went 4-under par over the final 12 holes Sunday at Quail Hollow to break a five-way tie for the lead early on the back-nine en route to winning his first major championship.

2 big awards and a lot of money

After a playoff win in Boston, Thomas sat No. 2 in the FedEx Cup standings and was the front-runner for PGA Tour Player of the Year with four wins and a major title. Projected to finish second in the playoffs heading into the final round of the Tour Championship, Thomas posted a 4-under-par 66 at East Lake to clinch the FedEx Cup title, the POY award, and the $10-million bonus. Thomas also received $945,000 for placing second in the Tour Championship.
