Tournament of Champion longest drives: Dustin Johnson dominates in Maui

10 January, 2018, 01:49 | Author: Lamar Ellis
  • Brian Harman held onto outright second despite a stutter after the turn

With a pair of 68's in the first two rounds Harmon follows them with a 4 under 69 on Saturday to place him just two behind Johnson at 14 under par.

The Irmo native won the Sentry Tournament of Champions at Kapalua Plantation Course by a dominant margin.

NEW FEDEXCUP LEADER: Dustin Johnson's win moved him from 25th to second in the FedExCup standings but we still have a new leader in the season long points race. "I just didn't think I was going to have a tap-in".

The Sentry Tournament of Champions marked the first chance for USA players to gain points in 2018 - something they'll be able to do at every non-opposite PGA Tour event, WGC and major through the 100th PGA Championship at Bellerive, concluding on August 12, 2018. The 23-year-old from Spain moved to No. 3 in the world. Will this dominant run continue or will another player be able to catch and overcome Johnson in the final round in paradise?

"I knew I was playing well, and it's a golf course I'm really comfortable on", Johnson said. He had a pair of double bogeys over the last four holes, sandwiched between birdies, shot 75 and was 18 shots behind. The latter overcame an ordinary start in Maui to post another top-ten finish on 12 under par. "More for myself and confidence, after what happened in Shanghai, I wanted to prove to myself that I still ... that ain't going to happen again".

It serves as the headquarters for the Trump Organization and is located on Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th Streets. Eric Trump tweeted "There was a small electrical fire in a cooling tower on the roof of Trump Tower ".

The extraordinary drive and resulting eagle put an exclamation point on what had already been a dominant performance and he put the icing on the cake with three more birdies on his way to 24-under for the week and a 17th career PGA Tour title.

Australian world No.12 Leishman, who led the winner's only event in Hawaii through 36 holes, has picked five birdies through his opening 13 holes on day four to sit at 12 under, along with American quartet Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Pat Perez and Brian Harman.

Dustin Johnson finds the flawless way to hit the top of the leaderboard at the Sentry Tournament of Champions as he holes a 70-yard pitch for eagle.

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