The American was truly superb off the tee in his Tournament of Champions win.

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.”
