'Boring' Burgoon leads CIMB as Thomas, Casey lurk

Leishman's tidy four-under 68 leaves him five strokes adrift of Burgoon, who constructed his second best round of the year on Thursday, a stunning 63 featuring eight birdies and an eagle.

Justin Thomas returns this week to the scene of his first PGA Tour win in 2015, and where he repeated as champion a year later.

Justin Thomas began his bid for a third CIMB Classic title with a six-under-par 66 to lie three shots behind compatriot Burgoon. "I'm comfortable. I think being a little bit of a longer hitter you have an advantage", said Thomas.

Thomas, the 2017 FedExCup champion, won his first two PGA TOUR titles at TPC Kuala Lumpur's West course in 2015 and 2016 before finishing T17 past year as he watched Pat Perez triumph by four shots.

"I was still the first reserve on Sunday and I had a 0030 Cathay flight on Monday to fly to KL and also a 2330 redeye to Florida from San Francisco because if I wasn't getting in, I was just going to go back to Florida".

"Then I'm like, oh, maybe I'm not going to play".

Welcome to this edition of PGA DFS Golf rankings for DRAFT.com from FantasyCPR, covering the 2018 CIMB Classic.

"I drove it well and I putted pretty good, so it was kind of boring golf, but that's always a good thing", Burgoon said. If I just play well in these three events, have consistent finishes, I feel like I'll get off to a very good start towards securing my PGA Tour card and it will obviously help my world ranking. "Every year the field gets better and better and the players get better".

Since the CIMB Classic is in Malaysia, and will actually be underway Wednesday evening, I don't have time for a writers block. "I have plans for the next couple of weeks where I'm not playing any golf, so it would have ended up like a month of no golf". Any Presidents Cup is special, but this time we're going to be playing on home ground, on home turf rather, and I think it's going to be different.

Smith finished last season with seven top-10 finishes, including back-to-back top-five finishes at the first two FedEx Cup Playoff events, the Northern Trust and Dell Technologies Championship.

He will play the first two rounds in a group featuring two former winners of the CIMB in defending champion Pat Perez and the in-form Ryan Moore.
