In 2018, we will begin a weekly Monday update of the weekend’s action from the leading tours across the globe.


World number one Dustin Johnson put on a dominant driving display en-route to an eight-shot demolition at the Sentry Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.

The 33-year-old American, who led after three rounds, fired an eight-under 65 to cruise to back-to-back victories at the tournament, with Spain’s Jon Rahm a distant second after a 69.

Johnson followed rounds of 69, 68 and 66 by making four birdies on the front nine then eagled the par-four 12th.

American Brian Harman finished third on 15 under while Open champion Jordan Spieth was a further three shots back.

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. Only Tiger Woods – with 18 wins – has more in that span.
