Johnson, who started the final round two shots off the pace,
took the sole lead with a short birdie putt on the 14th hole and
also birdied the next two holes to pull away at the Kapalua
The 2007 Masters champion finished at 19-under 273, while fellow
American Jordan Spieth (69) birdied the last to finish outright
second on 18-under, with compatriots Kevin Streelman (67) and
Webb Simpson (70) another shot back in tied third.
Johnson, 37, collected $1.14 million for his 11th PGA Tour
victory. Since his first victory nearly a decade ago, only Tiger
Woods, Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh have won more often than
Johnson on tour.
It was a second successive victory for Johnson, who ended last
year by beating Woods in a playoff at the world number one's
World Challenge in California.
The Tournament of Champions was the first PGA Tour event of
2014, but the seventh official tournament of the season, which
started in October.
