Dustin Johnson, the 32-year-old professional golf player, is back from an injury-induced hiatus, after he had to withdraw from the 2017 Masters Tournament—which he was poised to win.

The South Carolina native was forced to give this year’s major championship a miss as he injured his back by slipping on the stairs in his home just one day before the official start of the competition.

Johnson, who is currently world number 1 is reportedly due to play in this week’s Well Fargo Championship, starting today in North Carolina.
