Dustin Johnson headed back to PGA Tour at Wells Fargo

Dustin Johnson headed back to PGA Tour at Wells Fargo

Dustin Johnson is still "quite sore" but is "improving by the day" after having to withdraw from the Masters because of a back injury, according to his agent.

Johnson was born in Columbia, SC and attended Coastal Carolina University.

With Johnson now in the field, there are six players among the top 20 in the world scheduled to compete at the Wells Fargo Championship. Johnson has 15 PGA Tour wins since joining the tour in 2008.

But on the day before the year's first major championship began, Johnson slipped on stairs in his rental home and landed awkwardly on his arm and back. His small record there is spotty, as a tie for 29th in 2010 is sandwiched around two missed cuts. Local fans who have followed his career since he was an amateur player in this area are in for a real treat.

Final Four: Joel Berry II honors pledge to his Carolina teammates
Few described that conversation shortly after he described the 10 minutes he had spent trying to console Williams-Goss. Williams didn't have this problem Monday night. "So we just gotta give it our all, '" Joel Berry said after the game.

There are currently six players among the top-20 in the world now in the Wells Fargo field as Johnson joins Australian Adam Scott, Swede Alex Noren, Spaniard Jon Rahm and the U.S. pair of Patrick Reed and Phil Mickelson.

"He leads a group of players, now in the field, who are among golf's most dynamic and talented players in the world today".

If his first event is from May 4-7 at Eagle Point, which is just over a one-hour drive from Myrtle Beach, Johnson will be vying to be the first player since Tiger Woods over the 2007-08 seasons to win four straight PGA Tour starts.
