A near-ace and big win for Johnson at Kapalua

A near-ace and big win for Johnson at Kapalua

But not for Johnson who is now a 17-time PGA TOUR victor after his eight-shot demolition at the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Johnson got a great roll from his 430-yard tee shot to land within inches of the pin and tapped in for two, with the only blemish on his Sunday card coming on the par-three 11th.

It was a truly incredible shot! He finished at 24-under 268 and collected the 17th victory of his PGA Tour career.

"I've really been driving the ball (well) this week", said the 33-year-old, who has a new driver in his bag at the elite 34-man event for last year's tournament winners.

When it comes to smashing a golf ball really hard, England's Joe Miller is one of the world's best and his performance at the World Long Drive Championship in Thackerville, Oklahoma in 2016 blew us away. "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".

Prior to the Masters, Johnson won the Dell Technologies Match Play, the Genesis Open at Riviera Country Club and the WGC Mexico Championship. He has 11 straight seasons winning at least one tournament, the longest current streak on the PGA Tour.

"I hit my irons as expected, but I missed some puts in the middle holes", he said.

This one wasn't even close.

A year ago he enjoyed a purple patch during which he won three successive tournaments - the Genesis Open, WGC Mexico Championship and WGC Dell Matchplay. It only crossed his mind when it was mentioned to him on Saturday. "I know exactly where I want it to come down out of the air, and it did".

Of that drive at the 12th he said:"I could see it until it landed, and I knew that it was on a good line". "Everything is going in the right direction".
