Dustin Johnson six inches from a hole-in-one ... from 433 yards!

Dustin Johnson hits on the fourth fairway during the final round of the Tournament of Champions golf event Sunday Jan. 7 2018 at Kapalua Plantation Course in Kapalua Hawaii

World No. 1 Dustin Johnson powered to an eight-shot triumph at the U.S. PGA Tour Tournament of Champions in Hawaii Sunday.

Johnson entered the final round with a two-shot advantage and blew away the field with an eight-under-par 65 at the wide open Kapalua Plantation course on Maui.

If Johnson's ball had have rolled that extra six inches, he would have been just the second person in PGA history to hit a hole-in-one on a par four, following Andrew Magee at TPC Scottsdale in 2001.

But Johnson had put himself out of reach of all pursuers in the elite 34-player event for 2017 tournament winners.

"What I'm going to take from this week is I really hit some quality iron shots all week long", he said. He led by at least five shots over the final 11 holes. It only crossed his mind when it was mentioned to him on Saturday.

"I knew I was playing well and it's a golf course that I'm really confident on", Johnson said. The 23-year-old from Spain moved to No. 3 in the world.

Tigers Woods confirmed his first outing of the year will be at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in a fortnight followed by the Genesis Open at Riviera three weeks after that, where he will be joined by Rory McIlroy, making his debut at Pacific Palisades.

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

He said: "I still got a lot of work to do". He was consistent and impressive through all four rounds, shooting 69-68-66-65-268.

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