Dustin Johnson drives home point he's the man to beat

VIDEO Dustin Johnson nearly makes hole-in-one at 382-yard par 4			@PGATour

Johnson sent his tee shot soaring into the sky and watched as it tumbled down the hill and finished inches from the hole, leaving him a tap-in for an eagle two.

It took a ideal bounce, a flawless route and some wind to help the ball take off ... but couldn't it just roll a few more feet?

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

The eight-shot margin of victory was his largest ever, and it was one short of the tournament record set by David Duval since this event moved to Kapalua in 1999. So I knew it was going to be pretty good.

Johnson claims he'd forgotten all about China until media reminded him of it. "I wish I could say the same about my driver and putter". Earlier this week he said a historic eight wins or more season was possible and something to strive for.

Well, the PGA Tour's Twitter account on Monday posted a video of a number of near-hits that other players - from the legendary Nick Taylor to two-time major champion Zach Johnson - have enjoyed over the past several years. "I didn't want it to have to come down to the last couple holes", he said.

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.

"I want a lot more wins".

"I came out today with a lot of focus and I knew I wanted to play really well and not even". "More for myself and confidence, after what happened in Shanghai, I wanted to prove to myself that I still. that ain't going to happen again".

The 25-year-old started off strong with birdies on Nos.

Johnson went 66-65 on the weekend.
