Dustin Johnson opens 2018 with dominating victory at Sentry Tournament of Champions

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

He fumed for an hour.

After his infamous three-putt at Chambers Bay in 2015 he was playing golf in Idaho the next day with father-in-law to be Wayne Gretzky.

Johnson made up for his last PGA Tour event - the HSBC Champions in Shanghai, where he tied the worst kind of record by losing a six-shot lead - by turning the Tournament of Champions into a statement that he has been No 1 in the world the last 11 months for a reason.

"I got off to a great start, and I want to keep it going, " Johnson said. "This game, it changes very, very easily. I knew as long as I could keep doing that, I was going to do well". "You can only control what you're going to do". So the experience definitely dictated his actions on Sunday at Kapalua. "A day maybe. Not even", Johnson says. "It's really windy, and for the most part, all the shots I hit were the shots I wanted to hit". He thought about that Sunday and was determined that wouldn't happen again, and it didn't.

"It's the closest it's been to that stretch". We knew we let one slip away.

"What he did today was pretty impressive", Rahm said. "He's an extremely consistent player and what happened at the HSBC, it's just really extremely rare for him, right? I just didn't think I was going to have a tap-in". "I didn't want it to have to come down to the last couple holes", he said.

A 4-4 deadlock became 5-3 in favor of the new contract as the appointed member voted in favor of the renewal, she said. Hargrave, standing in the dark against a vehicle , replied, saying she was "walking and asking you a question".

In a field that featured the top five players in the world, Johnson made a strong opening statement that the No. 1 ranking he has held for almost a year might be hard to take away.

Four rounds in the 60s for a 24 under par aggregate, including a closing 65, demonstrated the peerless nature of Johnson's game when the elements come together.

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

Matsuyama played his last seven holes in five-under par with the aid of an eagle on the par-five 15th, where he landed his approach shot 10 feet from the pin. There also was the bullet of a drive into the wind on the 14th that ran onto the green about 25 feet away. Little wonder that he led the field in strokes gained/off the tee and tee to green as well as raw driving distance with an average of 324.7 yards.

Who needs fireworks to welcome the new year when Dustin Johnson has his own rockets? "I did a lot of things very well, but the driver was the biggest thing".

The world record recognised by Guinness Records as the longest drive in a competition is 515-yards by 64-year-old Mike Austin. An accident in his rented house at Augusta resulted in a back injury that forced him to withdraw, so he is naturally eager for his next shot at a green jacket. "It wasn't like, 'Oh, I might be hurt.' I knew it was hurt".
