Jordan Spieth closed the 2017 Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Hawaii, with a flourish, but it was likely too late for the 23-year-old to begin the new year in winning fashion.

Spieth posted an eight-under 65 in the final round to finish at 16 under par. Despite his impressive play Sunday, he remained five shots behind tournament leader Justin Thomas when he headed for the clubhouse.

Through the first three rounds, a small handful of mistakes had an overwhelming impact for Spieth.

According to the PGA Tour’s official website, he reached 32 of 45 fairways off the tee and 46 of 54 greens in regulation. He had two bogeys in Round 1 and three in Round 3, however, as well as a double bogey and a triple bogey in Round 2.

Golf Channel broke down his overall performance:

On Sunday, everything clicked for Spieth. He had his only bogey-free round of the Tournament of Champions, and he had the lowest score of the day when he walked off the course.

Spieth got off to a strong start with birdies on Nos. 3, 5 and 9, and his best work came on the back nine. He reeled off four straight birdies between the 12th and 15th holes and wrapped up the event with a birdie on No. 18.
