But not for Johnson who is now a 17-time PGA TOUR victor after his eight-shot demolition at the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

Brian Harman, who started the day two shots behind Johnson atop the leaderboard, closed with a one-under 72 for sole possession of third place on 277. He had a two-shot lead to start the final round at Kapalua, stretched to six shots at the turn and was leading by five when he reached the 343-yard 12th hole, where the final 120 yards are down the a steep hill with the Pacific Ocean on the horizon.

The 2013 champion nearly hit the hole with his drive at the sixth in round three, but that was a mere 382 yards away and his effort at the 12th in the final round was a full 50 yards longer.

"When I'm out there playing the only thing I'm focused on is the shot that I got to hit next". It only crossed his mind when it was mentioned to him on Saturday.

"It's no easy task, " said Rahm, who lost to Johnson in the final of Match Play a year ago. He rebounded strongly with the monster drive at the 12th and padded his lead with three straight birdies at Nos.

Japan's Hideki Matsuyama and Americans Rickie Fowler and Pat Perez were another shot back at 14-under.

He said: "I still got a lot of work to do".

Johnson went 66-65 on the weekend.
