Johnson Wins PGA Tour Opener
KAPALUA, Hawaii -- Dustin Johnson ended a windy week with a wild ride Tuesday that carried him to the first win of the PGA Tour season.
Despite hitting two drives into native areas, Johnson never lost the lead at Kapalua. He closed with a 5-under 68 for a four-shot victory over Steve Stricker in the Tournament of Champions.
The tournament that didn't start until the fourth day because of a powerful wind finally ended with a guy who overpowered the Plantation Course.
Johnson won for the sixth straight season, and he added this peculiar footnote to his record -- he now has won the last three 54-hole events that were reduced to 54 holes because of the weather.
