Johnson dominates in Tournament of Champions win

Johnson dominates in Tournament of Champions win

Johnson got a great roll from his 430-yard tee shot to land within inches of the pin and tapped in for two, with the only blemish on his Sunday card coming on the par-three 11th.

Matsuyama nailed one eagle and five birdies in a bogeyless 7-under-par 66, the second best score of the day.

You knew Dustin Johnson could absolutely bomb it off the tee (No. 2 in driving distance last year), but this is absolutely incredible.

The Irmo native won the Sentry Tournament of Champions at Kapalua Plantation Course by a dominant margin.

Johnson's ball flirted with the fairway bunkers on the left, but it took a big bounce which took it directly towards the flag, hopping onto the green before pulling up just six inches short of the cup.

Of that drive at the 12th he said:"I could see it until it landed, and I knew that it was on a good line. If my mind's wandering and thinking about other things, then I'm not going to have a good day", Johnson said.

Charles Woodson Named To College Football Hall Of Fame Class Of 2018
One of the best football players to ever come out of Wichita Falls is headed to the College Football Hall of Fame. Dickenson remains the all-time leading passer for the Grizzlies while holding 28 school records.

In typical nonchalant fashion, he remarked "I hit it a little thin", before grinning and confessing, "I hit it perfectly".

"I mean I go back over it and talk about it, but as far as how long has it frustrated me or anything, not long". He also drove the par-4 14th hole.

He played the 12th hole in four shots on the weekend. Earlier this week he said a historic eight wins or more season was possible and something to strive for. Johnson has now won at least one PGA Tour event in all 11 of his seasons since his rookie year in 2008 - the longest active streak on Tour. A runner-up to DJ in the matchplay previous year, Rahm confirmed that he is a talent that's here to stay on the PGA Tour.

"I want a lot more wins". I told myself to get it to 25.

"It's no easy task to catch DJ", said Rahm, who lost to Johnson in the final of Match Play a year ago.
