The world's top golfer, Dustin Johnson, walked to the first tee at the Masters and decided to withdraw due to back pain. Johnson injured his back during a fall at his rental home on Wednesday night.
Despite the injury, he still showed up to Augusta National Thursday with hopes of playing. After hitting a few balls at the driving range, Johnson left the first tee and headed back to the clubhouse.
He was scheduled to play in a group with Jimmy Walker and Bubba Watson.
The 32-year-old was the favorite to win the tournament. He was also coming into the Masters red-hot, having won his last three starts on the PGA Tour.
