  • DJ cruises to Sentry Tournament of Champions title

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson sent his rivals a warning by powering to an eight-shot win, the biggest margin of his career, at the PGA Tour's Tournament of Champions and insisting he has a lot of room for improvement.

Johnson entered the final round with a two-shot advantage and blew away the field with an eight-under-par 65 at the wide open Kapalua Plantation course on Maui. He also drove the par-4 14th hole. He has 11 straight seasons winning at least one tournament, the longest current streak on the PGA Tour.

One shot defined the tournament - a drive on the 433-yard 12th hole that went 432 yards and 6 inches.

As for the author of Chamblee's greatest hit, the 17-time tour victor was not almost so impressed with his prowess, joking as he walked to the green that he "hit it a little thin" and "came up a little short".

He played the 12th hole in four shots on the weekend.

Johnson claims he'd forgotten all about China until media reminded him of it.

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. I just didn't think I was going to have a tap-in".

"It's no easy task, " said Rahm, who lost to Johnson in the final of Match Play a year ago. "I know exactly where I want it to come down out of the air, and it did. First I want to get to 20, then 30 and once there 40", he added. "And there were times when I putted well but couldn't sink them". He was consistent and impressive through all four rounds, shooting 69-68-66-65-268.

"I got off to a great start, and I want to keep it going", Johnson said.

"But everything's going in the right direction".
