Dustin Johnson back in action after freak injury


Dustin Johnson addresses the media at a press conference during the Pro-Am for the Wells Fargo Championship.

DUSTIN Johnson hasn’t lost his touch with his wedges. From 107 yards away on the fourth hole Wednesday at the Wells Fargo Championship, his shot took a big hop on the firm green and flew straight into the cup for an eagle.

The crowd erupted in cheers, while Johnson simply smiled and used his shoe to tamp down the corners of his divot.

It takes a lot to get Johnson excited, much less during a pro-am.

“I’ll take it, though,” he said. “I need all the good shots I can get. I haven’t hit too many lately.” Johnson didn’t hit any the Masters. That’s still a sore subject, even though his back no longer is.

The Wells Fargo Championship is his first tournament since a freak accident knocked him out of the Masters a month ago. Having just returned from the gym, Johnson was still in his socks when he went downstairs in his rented home to move his car.
