  • Dustin Johnson says back is '85-90' percent, hitting 'better' than before injury

Dustin Johnson said Monday he is hitting the ball better now than before he suffered the back injury that knocked him out of the Masters.

Johnson went to Augusta National the next day hoping to tee it up in Round 1, but after a brief practice session where he was experiencing significant pain, he chose to withdraw one minute before his scheduled tee time.

"I was very happy with my practice session today. Hardly any issues. I would say it's about 85, 90 percent". Johnson, too, was disappointed to be relegated to the sidelines.

"I watched [the Masters]", said Johnson.

World No.1 Dustin Johnson has revealed that he is nearing full fitness and has pencilled in his return to action at the Wells Fargo Championship next month. "I was laying on the couch or in bed, so I really couldn't do anything else. That's one thing I don't want to do anymore".

"I was hitting the ball better today than I was when I injured myself, so that was a lot of fun", Johnson told Jordan Schultz of the Huffington Post.

There's probably never a "good time" to get hurt, but this was especially disappointing for Johnson who had just won in three consecutive starts and was in in peak form for the season's first major. I just kind of took it easy, just been training a little bit, taking care of it so I won't have any issues.
