Dustin Johnson Masters

April 4, 2012 by staff 

Dustin Johnson Masters, Dustin Johnson withdrew from the Masters on Tuesday because of a lingering back injury he aggravated while lifting a jet ski last week, agent David Winkle said.

Johnson, a five-time PGA Tour winner who is ranked No. 12 in the world, described the injury as a “tweaked back” on Twitter.

The Masters starts Thursday at Augusta National in Georgia. Most oddsmakers list four-time Masters winner Tiger Woods as the favorite and 2011 U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy as the second choice.

Woods played nine holes Tuesday with Seattle native Fred Couples, who won the 1992 Masters, and Sean O’Hair. Woods, 36, is competing in the Masters for the 18th time. Couples, 52, is appearing in his 28th Masters; he has made the cut 25 times.

Three-time Masters winner Phil Mickelson noted the relatively soft conditions at Augusta National and added, “Unless something changes, it’s going to be a birdie-fest.”
