Dustin Johnson has announced he is withdrawing from this week’s AT&T Byron Nelson due to “knee discomfort.”
The No. 1 player in the world was set to headline what is still a solid field this week at TPC Craig Ranch that includes Jordan Spieth, Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka, Jon Rahm, Masters champion Hideki Matsuyama, Will Zalatoris, Rickie Fowler and more.
“It is with deepest regret that I must withdraw from this week’s AT&T Byron Nelson,” Johnson said in a statement. “Unfortunately the knee discomfort that I occasionally experience has returned and after consultation with my team and trainers, I feel that it is best that I remain at home and focus on my rehabilitation work.”
