Thursday, 4 May 2017 : World number one Dustin Johnson says he does not have “many expectations” of success on his competitive return following a back injury that ruled him out of the Masters last month.
The American, 32, will compete in the PGA Tour’s Wells Fargo Championship in North Carolina this week.
The US Open champion withdrew on the first tee of the Masters first round, a day after falling on stairs in his rental home and hurting his lower back.
Johnson was a popular pick to claim the first major of the year, eventually won by Sergio Garcia, having won his previous three tournaments – February’s Genesis Open, and both the WGC Mexico Championship and WGC Dell Match Play in March.
He will look to defend his US Open title at this year’s tournament in Wisconsin, starting on 15 June.
This year’s Well Fargo Championship will be held at Eagle Point Golf Club, with regular venue Quail Hollow preparing to host the US PGA Championship in August, the final major of the year.
