Now for what's happening. It's finally here. Day 1 of the Masters Tournament. Most golf fans have their eyes on Woods, McIlroy, Mickelson, and Johnson. Johnson, the latter of the contenders missed last year's tournament. According to The Sun News:
Dustin Johnson missed nearly three months of the 2012 PGA Tour season from March to June with a lower back injury.
The most disappointing aspect of the time off was easy for Johnson to identify on Monday following a practice round at Augusta National Golf Club.
“For sure, I definitely wanted to play here,” Johnson said. “It’s my favorite event, I love coming here and it’s so close to home so I get a lot of fans out here. I was disappointed not to play, but I’m glad to be back this year.”
Having to decline a Masters invitation last year for the first time in the four years he had earned one gives the Coastal Carolina alumnus and Columbia native a heightened sense of anticipation for the 77th Masters.
A tie for 30th in his Masters debut in 2009 is Johnson’s best finish at Augusta National, and he’s coming off ties for 38th in both 2010 and 2011.
A 68 in the second round two years ago is his only Masters round in the 60s, though he played the three-hole stretch of holes 13 through 15 5-under par in the final round in 2009 with a 20-foot eagle putt on the par-5 13th, 6-iron from pine straw into the cup for eagle on the par-4 14th, and two-putt birdie on the par-5 15th.
He believes he’s on the verge of greatly improving his best Masters finish.
He has regained form in his last two events, tying for 12th in the WGC-Cadillac Championship and shooting a 7-under-par 65 in his last competitive round on March 31 to vault into a tie for fourth in the Shell Houston Open.
“Any time you get a win is good, but I struggled a little bit after that,” Johnson said. “The last two tournaments I played, I played pretty well and it seems like it’s getting better each week, so I definitely have a lot of confidence coming in this week.”
