'Not too frustrating': Thomas shrugs off closing bogey at CJ Cup

What a difference one hole can make.

Justin Thomas led the CJ Cup by three shots when he arrived at the par-5 18th hole Saturday at Nine Bridges. But when he walked off the island green, he was on the wrong end of a three-shot swing.

Danny Lee's eagle make from the collection area left of the green earned the New Zeleander the co-lead with Thomas, who looked to be in control until hitting his second shot into the water right of the green and making a costly bogey.

The lead is still three shots, only now it's Thomas and Lee knotted up at 15 under, with Cameron Smith lurking back at 12 under and rounding out Sunday's final threesome.
