Johnson sent his tee shot soaring into the sky and watched as it tumbled down the hill and finished inches from the hole, leaving him a tap-in for an eagle two. 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.

World number one Dustin Johnson powered to an eight-shot triumph at the US PGA Tour Tournament of Champions in Hawaii at the weekend.

Johnson knew his drive was well hit, but, as he picked his tee out out the ground, he would have had little idea that he would have been tapping in for eagle a few minutes later.

"Not very long, I don't think. If my mind's wandering and thinking about other things, then I'm not going to have a good day", Johnson said.

The highlight came at the par-four 12th hole, which measures 430 yards.

Johnson, who seized the world No. 1 ranking last February, has now won at least one US tour title for 11 straight years.

Why bother deciding between being lucky or good when you can just be both?

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". "I knew as long as I could keep doing that, I was going to do well". Jordan Spieth also won by eight shots in 2016.

"Winning every year out here on TOUR so far is big for me". "I know exactly where I want it to come down out of the air, and it did". I told myself to get it to 25.

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