Dustin Johnson is pretty good at golf, and if you have been untethered from your computing devices for the past few days and need convincing, his near hole-in-one on the 433-yard par-4 12th hole Sunday at the Sentry Tournament of Champions ought to do the trick.

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?

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.

Starting to think this guy knows what he's doing with the driver. It only crossed his mind when it was mentioned to him on Saturday.

Gandhi said there was also a need to reform India's education system and his party also has a strategy to improve healthcare. State party chief Bhupesh Baghel will be assisted by Ram Dayal Uike and Shiv Kumar Dhahariya as working presidents.

1 - This was a 17th PGA Tour victory for Johnson who has strengthened his position as the World's Number 1 golfer. "And there were times when I putted well but couldn't sink them". Earlier this week he said a historic eight wins or more season was possible and something to strive for.

10 seconds later, the 33-year-old looked on as the ball landed three inches from dropping in for an albatross.

"It's no easy task to catch DJ", said Rahm, who lost to Johnson in the final of Match Play a year ago.

This one wasn't even close.

That appeared to be a reference to US President Donald Trump who tweeted in support of anti-government rallies. Unemployment remains high at more than 12 percent, and inflation has resurged to 10 percent.

"I want a lot more wins".

"I knew I was playing well, and it's a golf course I'm really comfortable on", Johnson said. "First I want to get to 20, then 30 and once there 40", he added.

Johnson went 66-65 on the weekend.

Tigers Woods confirmed his first outing of the year will be at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines in a fortnight followed by the Genesis Open at Riviera three weeks after that, where he will be joined by Rory McIlroy, making his debut at Pacific Palisades.

But Nolan's comments don't technically violate the social media guidelines since they were not delivered on social media. As Sporting News reports, one of the hosts claimed the "thumbs up" gesture is seen by some as advocating "white power".

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