Emotional start to Masters with Nicklaus, Player

Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player wipe tears from their eyes as a chair is draped with a green jacket to honor Arnold Palmer before the start of the first round of the Masters golf tournament Thursday, April 6, 2017, in Augusta.

That trend will continue regardless of whether Johnson puts on Augusta National's iconic green jacket on Sunday, according to Tamara Jacobs, a senior vice president at Ketchum Sports & Entertainment.

Johnson spent time on the driving range with his brother/caddie, Austin, and coach Butch Harmon.

The American star, who has not withdrawn from the year's first major championship starting today, was the oddsmakers' favorite after winning his past three starts.

Johnson was at the club earlier in the day to practice before the wave of storms forced Masters officials to close the course.

"At the moment, Dustin Johnson is one of golf's most marketable and hottest players", Jacobs told FOX Business.

Johnson said: "I have been working all morning and obviously I can take some swings, but I can't swing full, I can't make my normal swing and I didn't think there was any chance I could compete". And it was pouring down rain, so I was going to go move the vehicle, I was just wearing my socks.

"I'm not going to hope that it gets harder or wish anything bad on anybody, but I'm definitely happy with under par". This is an event I look forward to every year, so to have a freak accident mean I can't play - it just sucks, it really does. "I've only known I've been in this tournament for a couple of days, and next thing you know I'm behind the ceremonial tee shot", Henley said.

Two years ago, Rory McIlroy ruptured ligaments in his ankle a few weeks before he was to defend his title in the 2015 British Open when he was No. 1 in the world. "And as you know, we're up on the hill - well, it's not as high at this point, but you're pretty high on 11, and the wind is from the west, so it's straight into the wind there".

The 32-year-old, who missed the 2012 Masters after reportedly injuring his back when lifting a jet-ski, was to tee off in the final group at 7.03pm Irish time.

"I was a bit surprised at how loud the cheer was", Spieth said, chuckling, "when my ball landed about 35 feet away from the hole". Golf.com cited an unnamed source two years later as saying Johnson had been suspended for a positive cocaine test.
