The American Zach Johnson has won the $7 million Tournament of Champions golf event in Hawaii.

Johnson fired a final round seven-under-par 66 to grab a one-stroke victory.

The 2007 Masters champion finished at 19-under par, one ahead of fellow American Jordan Spieth, with compatriots Kevin Streelman and Webb Simpson another shot back in a tie for third.

It is a second successive victory for Johnson, who ended last year by beating Tiger Woods in a playoff at the world number one's World Challenge in California.

The Tournament of Champions is the first PGA Tour event of 2014, but the seventh official tournament of the season, which started in October.
