Augusta - Dustin Johnson has withdrawn from the Masters with an injury.

Johnson, who lives in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, is a five-time PGA Tour winner who is No 12 in the world. It would seem his length is a good fit for the Masters, though he has not finished better than a tie for 30th in three previous trips to Augusta National.
