Rory McIlroy has a rib injury that is going to keep him out of this week's Abu Dhabi event. Lost in a playoff Sunday in South Africa

Justin Thomas finished with a score of 253 at the Sony Open, the 72-hole scoring record in PGA TOUR history. The 23-year-old also became the first player to win back-to-back PGA TOUR events by at least 3 strokes each since Tiger Woods in 2009.

How young are the PGA Tour's stars? From the projected world rankings, with Sony Open winner Justin Thomas jumping up to No. 8, six of the top nine players are all under age 30. And half of the top 10 is 27 or younger. The future is bright, indeed.

Justin Thomas picked up $2.3 million for two weeks in Hawaii. That's nearly a half-million more than Arnold Palmer's earnings in his entire PGA Tour career.
