Thomas began the day seven shots back and shot 67, tied for the lowest round of the day.
Zalatoris rode a rollercoaster round full of mishits that included a penalty drop for an unplayable lie before a birdie at the 17th got him to 5 under. He then got up and down for par at the 18th to get into the playoff.
