  • PGA Sentry Tournament of Champions

Johnson creamed the ball down the fairway on the 12th hole of Hawaii's Kapalua Resort - The Plantation Course; hitting the ball an incredible 420 yards (328 metres!) to come just six inches away from the hole.

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?

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".

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.

The 33-year-old, who won four times last season, picked up four birdies on the first nine and added three more to go along with an eagle at the par-4 12th hole to shut the door on the competition. Johnson 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. "If my mind's wandering and thinking about other things, then I'm not going to have a good day", Johnson said. Jordan Spieth also won by eight shots in 2016.

Harman closed with a 72 to finish third, while Hideki Matsuyama (66), Pat Perez (69) and Rickie Fowler (70) were another shot behind.
