Dustin Johnson Wins Tournament Of Champions In Hawaii By Eight Shots

10 January 2018

Go on - we will wait.

Johnson's 7-under-par 66 on Saturday at Kapalua Resort's Plantation Course on the island of Maui matched the best round of the tournament. What he missed was the ball catching the right bounce to feed it onto the green, and then rolling straight toward the pin until it stopped just inches away from a hole-in-one.

"I could see it until it landed, but I knew it was on a good line", he said. Obviously you have to get a nice bounce. "And I knew once it got on the green that it was going to be pretty good".

Incredibly Johnson claims the swing was probably only 90percent - although he admitted it was "flush".

Dustin Johnson (-16) - Johnson's third round was spearheaded by an eagle-2 on the par-4 12th hole. "I just didn't think I was going to have a tap-in". "I hit it ideal".

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson sent his rivals a warning by powering to an eight-shot win, the biggest margin of his career, at the PGA Tour's Tournament of Champions and insisting he has a lot of room for improvement.

The two-time victor in 2017 shot a disastrous 3-over 76 Saturday to fall well off the pace and though he hit back with a superb 6-under round Sunday will rue a lost chance. Similarly, Jordan Spieth has fallen out of striking distance when he was only able to manage a three under round of 70.

"It's no easy task to catch DJ", said Rahm, who lost to Johnson in the final of Match Play a year ago. "If it's not meant to be, it's not meant to be, but it's definitely one of my goals". The results weren't matched at the end of previous year however the hangover from the PGA Championship loss to Justin Thomas appears to be well and truly over. Hideki Matsuyama rounds out the top 5.

"I knew I was playing well and it's a golf course that I'm really comfortable on. But, again, I'm looking forward to these next two weeks to correct the things that I need to and be ready for my next tournament at Torrey Pines".
