Bad memory makes Dustin Johnson a golf king

Bad memory makes Dustin Johnson a golf king

The highlight came at the par-four 12th hole, which measures 430 yards. "If my mind's wandering and thinking about other things, then I'm not going to have a good day", Johnson said.

"I've really been driving the ball (well) this week", added the American, who has a new driver in his bag.

The 33-year-old followed up rounds of 69, 68 and 66 by taking four birdies on the front nine, and a back nine which included an eagle on the par-four 12th.

One shot defined the tournament - a drive on the 433-yard 12th hole that went 432 yards and 6 inches.

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

The way Johnson was playing, everyone was playing for second.

In Maui this week he had extended his lead to four shots after just three holes on Sunday.

1 - This was a 17th PGA Tour victory for Johnson who has strengthened his position as the World's Number 1 golfer.

There's no doubt Johnson hit a monster shot off the tee, but you also can't deny a few lucky bounces there.

When he was in this sort of mood a year ago he won three straight events at the Genesis Open, World Golf Championships - Mexico Championship and the World Golf Championships - Dell Match Play.

Johnson lost a six-shot lead in the final round of the HSBC Champions in Shanghai last fall, his most recent PGA Tour start. "I know exactly where I want it to come down out of the air, and it did".

Johnson joined Stuart Appleby (three times) and Geoff Ogilvy (twice) as the only multiple winners at Kapalua.

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

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