US Open winner Jim Furyk cruised to an eight-shot victory at the Grand Slam of Golf in Hawaii.
The American was five clear after a five-under-par 67 on day one of the exclusive tournament restricted to the year's four Major winners.
And Furyk extended his advantage even further thanks to a second-round 68 which saw him finish on nine under.
Masters champion Mike Weir, the first Canadian to win a Major, was a distant second after rounds of 72 and 71.
USPGA winner Shaun Micheel was another two shots back in third after improving on his opening-day 75 with a solid 70.
Shock Open hero Ben Curtis trailed in last after two successive 73s.
****Tiger Woods had won the last five renewals of this event but failed to qualify this time around.*****
