Dustin Johnson Leads PGA Tour Season Opener in Hawaii by 3 Shots

Jan. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Dustin Johnson takes a three-shot lead into the final round of the U.S. PGA Tour’s season-opening Tournament of Champions in Hawaii.

After windy conditions canceled play for three straight days at the Kapalua Resort’s Plantation Course in Maui, Johnson shot 11 under par over 36 holes yesterday. He opened with a 4-under 69 and followed it up with a 66 that included an eagle on the par-5 18th hole.

Defending champion Steve Stricker is in second place at 8 under, with 2012 Masters Tournament winner Bubba Watson a stroke further back. Keegan Bradley and Brandt Snedeker are tied for fourth place in the 30-golfer field of 2012 PGA Tour winners, at 6 under par.

The tournament is scheduled to conclude with 18 holes today, with the winner receiving $1.12 million. The PGA Tour’s last 54-hole event was the 2011 Barclays Tournament at Plainfield Country Club in Edison, New Jersey, which was shortened to three rounds because of a hurricane.

The PGA Tour’s second event, the $5.7 million Sony Open, is scheduled to start Jan. 10 in Honolulu.
