"It took a long time to recover from it, for sure," said Johnson, who will start his week alongside breakout star Xander Schauffele on Thursday.

So that was a lot different than low back where it kind of, it really affected like my rotation through the ball."

Like most long hitters, Johnson has found consistent success at The Plantation Course at Kapalua — host of this week's event. He is excited to knock the rust off at a tournament he won in 2013, and recorded a tie for sixth last year.

What's not to like about Hawaii? This golf course, it's a good golf course for me. It's big, it's pretty long, I can hit a lot of drivers, so I enjoy it."
