Zach Johnson entered the final round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions Monday two shots off the lead.

But after a 7-under 66, Johnson came away with his 11th career PGA Tour victory, winning by a shot over Jordan Spieth, who needed to chip-in for eagle at the 18th hole to get to 19 under and force a playoff.

"Remaining patient, that was the big thing, especially after yesterday," said Johnson, who shot 74 on Sunday.

Kevin Streelman and Webb Simpson tied for third at 17 under while Jason Dufner was fifth at 15 under.
