Justin Thomas won the inaugural CJ Cup on Sunday in a playoff over Marc Leishman, thanks in large part to his approach into the second playoff hole (18) after Leishman had found the water:

But Thomas and Leishman ended up in the playoff after hitting a couple of very similar shots into a par-5 finishing hole while trying to win the tournament in regulation. Considering the circumstances, it's hard to do much better than either of these.

Playing in the second-to-last group, Leishman was 261 yards away from the pin after finding the fairway with his drive.

That wasn't a problem for the 33-year-old Aussie:

Not to be outdone, Thomas one-upped Leishman from about 30 yards closer to the green a few minutes later:

Both players missed their eagle tries (hence the playoff), but that shouldn't take away from any of these special shots.
