MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) Justin Thomas wants to make his second stint as No. 1 in the world last longer than the first time around.

"I hope so," Thomas said Sunday after winning the FedEx St. Jude Invitational to take the No. 1 spot for the first time since June 2018. "I feel like I'm a better player, and I feel like I'm more complete of a golfer now than I was then."

Thomas dueled defending champion Brooks Koepka down the final holes, sealing the World Golf Championship victory on the par-5 16th. Thomas took the lead for good with his second straight birdie, while Koepka bogeyed the hole.
