Dustin Johnson, who comes into the Masters as the No. 1 golfer in the world, fell down a staircase on Wednesday afternoon. The fall caused Johnson to suffer a lower back injury, leaving his status for golf’s first Grand Slam event in question.According to David Winkle, his manager at Hambric Sports, Johnson took the tumble at 3 p.m. This all comes following the cancellation of the Par-3 tournament after storms caused the course at Augusta to shut down at 1:30 p.m.”He landed very hard on his lower back and is now resting, although quite uncomfortably,” Winkle said in an statement. “He has been advised to remain immobile and begin a regiment of anti-inflammatory medication and icing, with the hope of being able to play tomorrow.”Johnson fell on a staircase in his rental home in Augusta, according to Winkle, who said he will refrain from commenting on his client’s status at this time. Johnson is no stranger to freak accidents as he withdrew from The Masters in 2012 after his agent said he injured his back lifting a jet-ski.The reigning U.S. Open champion won his last three starts and is considered one of the favorites to win at Augusta National Golf Course. He is scheduled to tee off at 2:03 p.m. ET, the last tee time of the day.
