KAPALUA, Hawaii — Only someone as athletic and powerful as Dustin Johnson could take the hilly, 7,411-yard, par-73 Plantation Course and turn it into a par-3 contest. And only someone like Johnson, whose personality is as placid as the west Maui winds are not, could describe as “nice” the blustery conditions that delayed the start of the Tournament of Champions for three days.

 “I didn’t really have any anxiety,” Johnson said. When the wind-shortened event finally started, he ran away from the winners-only field, posting a 54-hole score of 16-under-par 203 to win by four strokes over Steve Stricker in the first Monday start and Tuesday finish since the event relocated here in 1999.

Johnson, a former Coastal Carolina standout, closed with a five-under 68 to win his seventh PGA Tour title. At 28, he became the first tour player since Tiger Woods to win at least one tournament each of his first six years out of college.

 When Johnson’s drives are good, they’re very, very good, but when they’re bad, they’re in the woods. On the 13th, the smart play for Johnson would have been to use a three iron off the tee. He took his driver out without a second thought and hooked the ball into vegetation behind a fairway bunker.

“Walking off that tee, I wasn’t too happy with myself,” said Johnson, whose expression never changed.

The most flustered Johnson looked all day was after his round, when asked the nature of his relationship with Paulina Gretzky, the daughter of the hockey Hall of Famer Wayne Gretzky and the actress Janet Jones, who was in his gallery.

Johnson blushed and said, “Does that really matter?” For players retracing the golfing footsteps of Woods, everything is in play.
