Johnson has put on quite the display in recent days, and this incredible drive on the 12th hole sums up his magnificent form coming into January's tournament at Kapalua.

It took a ideal bounce, a flawless route and some wind to help the ball take off ... but couldn't it just roll a few more feet?

"I hit it a little thin", Dustin Johnson said.

The eight-shot margin of victory was his largest ever, and it was one short of the tournament record set by David Duval since this event moved to Kapalua in 1999.

Miller, who twice went over 435-yards on the way to winning his second title. rarely plays golf but who cares about putting and chipping when you've got this ridiculous swing.

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

He has now won at least one PGA TOUR event in all 11 of his seasons since his rookie year in 2008 - the longest active streak on TOUR. Jordan Spieth also won by eight shots in 2016.

Mr Alvarsjo said Swedish police have "unfortunately" noticed a rise in the use of hand grenades by criminal groups. Numerous illegal hand grenades found in Sweden are being imported from former Yugoslav nations, he 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".

Matsuyama nailed one eagle and five birdies in a bogeyless 7-under-par 66, the second best score of the day.

"A lot of seasons I've only had one win, but last year was my most and hopefully I can do even better than that this year".

"It's no easy task, " said Rahm, who lost to Johnson in the final of Match Play a year ago. "Whether I win or lose".

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 knew I was playing well, and it's a golf course I'm really comfortable on", Johnson said. I told myself to get it to 25. "Everything is going in the right direction".
