Johnson Injures Back On Day 1 of Masters 


According to Dustin Johnson’s agent, David Winkle at Hambric Sports, the following statement was released : 

“At roughly 3:00 pm today, Dustin took a serious fall on a staircase in his Augusta rental home. He landed very hard on his lower back and is now resting, although quite uncomfortably. He has been advised to remain immobile and begin a regimen of anti-inflammatory medication and icing, with the hope of being able to play tomorrow.

“I will refrain from commenting further until I know more about Dustin’s condition.”

Danny Willett’s best shots as he wins the title

Masters final leaderboard (US unless stated)

-5 D Willett (Eng) -2 L Westwood (Eng), J Spieth; -1 P Casey (Eng), JB Holmes, D Johnson; Level M Fitzpatrick (Eng), S Kjeldsen (Den), H Matsuyama (Jpn)

Selected others: +1 J Day (Aus), J Rose (Eng), R McIlroy (NI); +5 J Donaldson (Wal); +6 B Langer (Ger)

Full leaderboard

Danny Willett claimed a shock Masters win with a superb five-under-par 67 as 2015 champion Jordan Spieth crumbled during a thrilling final round.
The Englishman, 28, won his first major by three shots on five under to become the first British victor in 20 years.
Overnight leader Spieth, 22, led by five shots as he approached the 10th at Augusta, but the American dramatically dropped six shots in three holes.

Masters win ‘crazy’ says Willett

Relive all the drama at Augusta

Historic moment for British golf – 5 live podcast

Westwood’s three-under-par 69 gave him his second Masters runners-up finish on two under, with Paul Casey, another Englishman, one shot further back in a tie for fourth.
Spieth will be left ruing a remarkable collapse on the iconic par-three 12th, twice finding the water in front of the green as he carded a quadruple bogey seven – to follow successive bogeys on the 10th and 11th holes.
That catapulted Sheffield’s Willett, who was playing the par-five 15th, into the outright lead – one that he would not relinquish after signing for the joint-lowest round of the final day.
Willett’s rapid rise
Willett is one of the golf’s rising stars, having climbed from outside the top 100 to inside the top 10 in less than two years.
But few would have predicted a first major win in only his second appearance on the unforgiving Augusta course, especially because the Yorkshireman’s participation at the Masters had been in doubt, with his wife Nicole due to give birth on the final day.
