World number one Dustin Johnson powered to an eight-shot triumph at the US PGA Tour Tournament of Champions in Hawaii at the weekend.
Johnson’s masterful display off the tee at the par-73 Plantation Course at Kapalua included a near hole-in-one at the par-four 12th hole – where his drive left him a six-inch tap-in for eagle.
It was a truly amazing shot!
He carded an eight-under par 65 for 24-under 268 and his 17th US PGA Tour triumph, seemingly impervious to the wind and intermittent rain throughout the round.
“I knew I was playing well and it’s a golf course that I’m really confident on,” Johnson said.
“I’ve really been driving the ball (well) this week,” added the American, who has a new driver in his bag. “I knew as long as I could keep doing that I was going to play well.”
