Good Sunny afternoon from Classic Swing Golf School!
The temps have been up and down this week and I must say I consider any temp under 65 degrees to be too cold. Take advantage of these few days of warmer weather and contact Classic Swing for the finest in Golf Instruction from one of the top schools in America.
The Pros at the Tournament of Champions at Kapalua this week had warm and sunny skies on their side, especially Zach Johnson.
Enjoy this from golf.com:
KAPALUA, Hawaii (AP) — Zach Johnson started the new year the same way he ended the last one.
Johnson pulled away with three straight birdies on the back nine at Kapalua and closed with a 7-under 66 for a one-shot victory over Jordan Spieth in the Tournament of Champions on Monday.
Johnson didn't need any heroics, like holing out from a drop zone on the last hole when he beat Tiger Woods in the World Challenge last month in California. This was mainly about chipping and putting, and Johnson is among the best.
He hit a wedge to 8 feet for birdie on the 14th to take the outright lead for the first time. Facing a dangerous shot up a steep slope to a green with a false front, Johnson caught it perfectly on the 15th for an easy birdie. And he hit wedge to 5 feet for a third straight birdie that gave him control.
"I just picked it apart," said Johnson, who finished at 19-under 273. "I didn't deviate from anything I typically do on a golf course."
This was the 11th win of his career. Since his rookie season in 2004, only Woods, Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh have won more PGA Tour events. It also was his third win in his last six starts, dating to the BMW Championship north of Chicago in September that qualified him for the winners-only event in Kapalua.
Five players had at least a share of the lead at some point in the final round, and mistakes were magnified.
Dufner holed a 60-foot eagle putt on the sixth hole and grabbed a share of the lead with a shot up the hill and into a stiff wind to 4 feet for birdie on the 13th. His mistake was making pars on the short 14th and the par-5 15th, three-putting from long range on the latter.
Masters champion Adam Scott got within one shot of the lead with an eagle on the 15th hole, only for his wedge to hit the flag on the 16th. He had to settle for par, and he closed with a bogey to finish in the tie for sixth. He never was a serious threat to win, though, not with Zach Johnson facing so many easy birdie holes and making it look easy.
