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.

A new year brought out the best in Dustin Johnson, who powered his way to an 8-under 65 and an eight-shot victory Sunday in the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Johnson knew his drive was well hit, but, as he picked his tee out out the ground, he would have had little idea that he would have been tapping in for eagle a few minutes later. "If my mind's wandering and thinking about other things, then I'm not going to have a good day", Johnson said.

Why bother deciding between being lucky or good when you can just be both? He had a two-shot lead to start the final round at Kapalua, stretched to six shots at the turn and was leading by five when he reached the 343-yard 12th hole, where the final 120 yards are down the a steep hill with the Pacific Ocean on the horizon. 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.

"What I'm going to take from this week is I really hit some quality iron shots all week long", he said.

Starting to think this guy knows what he's doing with the driver. Jordan Spieth also won by eight shots in 2016.

In Maui this week he had extended his lead to four shots after just three holes on Sunday.

"Winning every year out here on TOUR so far is big for me". "Whether I win or lose".

"It's no easy task, " said Rahm, who lost to Johnson in the final of Match Play a year ago. "More for myself and confidence, after what happened in Shanghai, I wanted to prove to myself that I still. that ain't going to happen again".
