KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) -- Justin Thomas won the CIMB Classic on Sunday for his first PGA Tour title, holing a 6-foot par putt on the final hole for a one-stroke victory over Adam Scott.

The 22-year-old American closed with a 6-under 66 for a tournament-record 26-under 262 total at Kuala Lumpur Golf and Country Club.

Thomas had a double bogey on the 14th after hitting into the water, then rallied with three consecutive birdies to take the outright lead.

Scott had an eagle and seven birdies in his closing 63. Kevin Na and Brendan Steele tied for third at 24-under. Na had a 67, and Steele shot 68.

Thomas opened with rounds of 68, 61 and 67 to share the third-round lead with Steele.
