Zach Johnson wins first PGA Event of 2014

Posted: Updated:

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 to win the Tournament of Champions on Monday.

He didn't need any heroics, like holing out from a drop zone when he beat Tiger Woods in the World Challenge last month. This was mainly about chipping and putting, and Johnson is among the best.

He won by one shot over Jordan Spieth, who birdied the last two holes for a 69.

It was Johnson's third win in his last six starts. This was his 11th career win on the PGA Tour. Since his rookie year in 2004, only Woods, Phil Mickelson and Vijay Singh have won more.
