Dustin Johnson set to return to action after Masters injury nightmare

 

By Robert Jones

World number one Dustin Johnson is due back on the course at the Wells Fargo Championship tomorrow after recovering from a back injury which ruled him out of the Masters.

Leading up to the tournament, Johnson was on fire, winning both the WGC Mexico Championship and WGC Dell Match Play and was widely tipped to collect his second major.

Johnson fell down stairs at his rental home the day before the tournament and the hot favourite pulled out on the first tee.

A strong field is participating this week including Portrush's Graeme McDowell, Offaly's Shane Lowry, Phil Mickelson, Adam Scott and Zach Johnson. Rory McIlroy is still away on his honeymoon.

This year's championship has been moved from the Quail Hollow Club to the Eagle Point Golf Club as the regular venue hosts this year's PGA Championship.

The unofficial fifth major is next week - The Players Championship at Sawgrass.
