Zach Johnson made this golf thing look so easy the first two days at Kapalua. On Sunday, however, the 10-time TOUR winner managed just one birdie and had two bogeys down the stretch en route to a 1-over 74 that dropped him two shots off the pace.
That pace is now being set by Dustin Johnson, Webb Simpson and reigning PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year Jordan Spieth.
Spieth, who played his way into full TOUR status and the Hyundai Tournament of Champions when he won the 2013 John Deere Classic, started the day two back but played his last 10 holes in 4 under to post a 69 and match Dustin Johnson's third round mark. Simpson shot 68.
A shot behind Zach Johnson, tied for fifth, were Gary Woodland (67), Jason Dufner (69), Brandt Snedeker (69) and Kevin Streelman (70).
Brian Gay had the day's best round with an 8-under 65 that left him six shots off the pace.
