Also, the spotlight turned to Thomas when he made an incredible birdie putt on the par-4 5th hole while aiming away from the hole and not actually putting on the surface of the green.

Take a look at this roller-coaster ride of a putt below.



That sideways putt was just the beginning.

Thomas is now deep in the midst of an outstanding round -- on the first nine holes, he shot a 31, tying him atop the leaderboard with the likes of today's incoming leaders.
