American Justin Thomas shot his third-straight 67 to take the lead on day three of the Tournament of Champions.

The 23-year-old hit three consecutive birdies as he secured a two-shot lead over Japan’s Hideki Matsuyama.

World number one Jason Day is in 13th place after a three-under 70, while Scotland’s Russell Knox is seven shots off the lead with one round remaining.

“I left a lot our there. That is always a good thing because I can just go work on it and improve,” Thomas said.
