Justin Thomas beat Patrick Reed and Xander Schauffele in a three-man playoff to win the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Hawaii, this weekend.

By the numbers: It's the 26-year-old's third victory in his last six PGA Tour starts, and the 12th of his career, giving Thomas more wins than any other active player under 30.

Looking ahead: It's a new year, which means it's time to experience new things. If you've never organized a weekend trip to a PGA Tour event, make 2020 the year you do. Here are 12 upcoming stops with serious "golf vacation" potential:

Scoop: Mike Bloomberg's anti-chaos theory

Mike Bloomberg's $100 million Florida blitz begins today and will continue "wall to wall" in all 10 TV markets through Election Day, advisers tell me.

Why it matters: Bloomberg thinks that Joe Biden putting away Florida is the most feasible way to head off the national chaos we could have if the outcome of Trump v. Biden remained uncertain long after Election Day.

Biden's hardline Russia reset

When he talks about Russia, Joe Biden has sounded like Ronald Reagan all summer, setting up a potential Day 1 confrontation with Russian President Vladimir Putin if Biden were to win.

Why it matters: Biden has promised a forceful response against Russia for both election interference and alleged bounty payments to target American troops in Afghanistan. But being tougher than President Trump could be the easy part. The risk is overdoing it and making diplomacy impossible.
