KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) Justin Thomas completed a fairytale return to the CIMB Classic with a successful title defense after eight birdies in the final round Sunday earned him a three-shot victory over closest rival Hideki Matsuyama.

The American did not match his record tournament score of 26-under 262 in 2015, but still finished with an impressive 23 under for only his second PGA Tour title.

"It's great to win again here. It's a place I'm comfortable with ... Hopefully I will be able to come back next year," said Thomas, who shot a 64 to match his first-day score.
