Dustin Johnson misses pro-am with a sore neck
KAPALUA, Hawaii -- Dustin Johnson says his neck is feeling better and that he expects to defend his title in the Tournament of Champions.
Johnson withdrew from the pro-am Thursday because of stiffness in the left side of his neck. He says he slept on it awkwardly, and then felt a twinge as he turned suddenly when someone called his name.
He says he took some strong anti-inflammatory medicine and his trainer has been working on it.
Johnson should be OK. He said his neck felt loose enough that he was going to try to hit balls Thursday evening.
