Dominant Dustin Johnson Blows Field Away at Kapalua

Did we mention that the world No. 1, who ran away from the field with an eight-shot laugher at the Tournament of Champions, nearly holed his tee shot from 433 yards away?

Brian Harman, who started the day two shots behind Johnson atop the leaderboard, closed with a one-under 72 for sole possession of third place on 277. He then turned on the afterburners, driving close on the par-4 12th and leaving a tap-in eagle.

Dustin Johnson won the first PGA Tour event of 2018 with something to spare, firing a closing 65 to come out on top by eight strokes in the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

"I hit my irons as expected, but I missed some puts in the middle holes", he said. He led by at least five shots over the final 11 holes.

Johnson claims he'd forgotten all about China until media reminded him of it. About his rocket shot Johnson said: "I knew it was on a good line". "I wish I could say the same about my driver and putter".

Who needs fireworks to welcome the new year when Dustin Johnson has his own rockets? "Whether I win or lose".

Why bother deciding between being lucky or good when you can just be both? Jordan Spieth also won by eight shots in 2016.

When he was in this sort of mood a year ago he won three straight events at the Genesis Open, World Golf Championships - Mexico Championship and the World Golf Championships - Dell Match Play. I told myself to get it to 25.

Johnson joined Stuart Appleby (three times) and Geoff Ogilvy (twice) as the only multiple winners at Kapalua.

Johnson went 66-65 on the weekend.

The 25-year-old started off strong with birdies on Nos.

"But if I can stay focused just on what I'm supposed to be doing, the shot I want to hit, and the next shot that I'm going to hit, then that's how I have success". "Everything is going in the right direction".
