Twenty seven year old Dustin Johnson has returned to the golf course for the first time in over two and half months to take part in the memorial tournament which is being defended by fellow American Steve Stricker.
The American admitted to be so out of his routine that he actually forgot to pack much of his essentials for the tournament, most notably all his trouser belts were left at home.
The Golfer his hoping his golf game is not affected by this, and is hoping he can bounce back quickly and not require a lengthy rebidding period before getting back into the swing of things. Johnson hasn’t played since his performance at Doral in March where the American finished joint 35th. The Golfer had felt a twinge in his back during the tournament and it had become worse while he was playing then after the tournament Johnson worsened the injury while pulling in his boat from the water.
The Twenty seven year old tried to play again but immediately knew that the injury was serious. As a result the golfer was not able to play for five weeks, which meant that he had gone some time without playing consistently after suffering serious knee injury back in November of last year which required surgery and meant he missed much of the earlier golf this year.
Johnson is said to be glad to finally come back with no niggles or injuries and hoping to make a quick impact ahead of Ryder Cup selection which is not too far away. Memorial will be a good test as the majority of the world’s best players in particular the American ones will be taking part to ensure much needed ranking points which can secure a place in Team America.
