Dustin Johnson (back) has withdrawn from the PGA TOUR’s 3M Open
Citing a back injury, Johnson ($11,500; 8.0 DKFP) has withdrawn from the 3M Open. Johnson’s poor performance also likely played a role, as he shot a 78 (+7) on Thursday before withdrawing. Johnson closed out his ugly day by shooting four over on a par five on hole 18. Johnson was 19% owned in DraftKings’ Millionaire contest, making him the sixth most heavily owned player in the tournament. Since Johnson was so heavily owned, this is slate-changing news, and fantasy owners who did not have Johnson in their lineups will now get an edge heading into the weekend.
