During his eventual win at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Johnson got to the tee at the par-4, 433-yard No. 12 and unleashed an absolute stunner ... He then turned on the afterburners, driving close on the par-4 12th and leaving a tap-in eagle.
Johnson ended up taking out the Kapula Resort PGA contest by eight shots, pocketing a cool $6,300,000 Dollars for his efforts.
Forget dropping a six-shot final round lead at the World Golf Championships - HSBC Champions in China late past year. Jordan Spieth also won by eight shots in 2016. Having fallen out of the top ten for the first time in four years, and with Rahm Europe's top-ranked player in only his second season, it already feels like the Ulsterman is playing catch-up just one week into the new year.

Johnson, who held a two-shot lead going into the final day of the Tournament of Champions in Hawaii, absolutely smashed a ball from 433 yards. On Saturday he had holed a 70 yard downhill chip and, on the final day, he made it far easier for himself by blasting his tee shot all the way to the putting surface. It's a blind shot over the hill, with a strong wind at his back, so he never saw the ball race down the hill, onto the green and head straight to the cup until stopping 6 inches away. He led by at least five shots over the final 11 holes.
That stretched his lead to seven shots, and the rout was on.
