Dustin Johnson came thisclose to a 433-yard par-4 hole-in-one

Last season Johnson won four times, marking the best year of his career, and he said in Hawaii that he believed it was possible for somebody to win eight times or more in a year.

Perhaps it's no surprise Johnson is lapping the field at the Tournament of Champions, holding a seven-shot advantage with just four holes to play.


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. "Hopefully I can keep playing good and maybe someday be No.1. I know exactly where I want it to come down out of the air and it did", Johnson said.

I think you're being a tad harsh on yourself, here. 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.


"I hit it a little thin", Dustin Johnson said. "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". He led by at least five shots over the final 11 holes. Jordan Spieth also won by eight shots in 2016. "I got off to the right start, for sure", he said.

1 - This was a 17th PGA Tour victory for Johnson who has strengthened his position as the World's Number 1 golfer. A runner-up to DJ in the matchplay past year, Rahm confirmed that he is a talent that's here to stay on the PGA Tour.


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. "First I want to get to 20, then 30 and once there 40", he added.
