Fit-again Dustin Johnson 'very pleased' with comeback round

Fit-again Dustin Johnson 'very pleased' with comeback round

Heading down Magnolia Lane, Johnson had three starts in a row - the Genesis Open, the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship and the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

While Scott tied for a solid ninth place at the Masters, big-hitting Johnson was forced to pull out minutes before the opening round after suffering a back injury during a freak fall down a staircase at his Augusta rental home. His health is fine. "I just need to get some more rounds in, get some more reps, but I feel like the golf swing´s in good shape".

Queenslander Cameron Smith was a late withdrawal, the 23-year-old opting for a rest ahead of the Players Championship following his breakthrough victory at last week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans. "I didn't score that great, didn't really hole that many putts, but other than that, I played really well". He hit 16 of 18 greens in regulation, but struggled with the greens and had 32 putts.

"I fell good. As far as physically, no issues", Johnson said.

“Since I hadnt played in so long, Im happy with the way I played, ” Johnson said.

There was less good fortune for Shane Lowry on his return to the course Stateside. Felt I needed to see my family and spend some good time with them.

He played with his father in the Azalea Invitational in Charleston, S.C., last month and shot 78-77-77, missing the 54-hole cut.

The Waterford native started at the 10th and birdied four of his first 11 holes, with another on the sixth before a bogey on his last hole, to sit at four under.

Davis Love III, who played alongside Johnson and matched his 70, said 2 under was the worst Johnson could have shot considering how well he hit the ball.

Molinari's round was highlighted by handsome a chip-in birdie on the 18th hole from just off the green.

Noren is juggling his time between playing in the USA and Europe, something he wants to continue.

Johnson spent extra time during his pro-am studying each of the greens and the surrounding chipping areas.

"I made a few longer birdie putts which I haven't done maybe lately in tournaments", he said.

Sweden's Alex Noren shot a five-under 67 during a round that featured six birdies and just one bogey, putting him one stroke behind Molinari.
