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.”
