Baylor alum Luke List set to vault up golf rankings with Honda Classic runner-up finish

Former Baylor School standout Luke List came close but fell short in his bid for a first PGA Tour win Sunday in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

Luke List came up short Sunday evening in his quest to win for the first time on the PGA Tour, so the former Baylor School and Vanderbilt University golfer will have to settle for some newfound top-20 status.

List finished runner-up to Justin Thomas at the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., with Thomas making birdie on the first playoff hole after the two finished four rounds deadlocked at 8-under-par 272. It marked the seventh triumph in the past 31 tournaments for the scorching Thomas and the best career showing for List, who earned a whopping $712,800 and now ranks 19th on the 2017-18 money list ($1,457,145) and 16th in the FedExCup standings.
