Dustin Johnson is out of the 2017 Masters due to a back injury following a tumble down an Augusta staircase Wednesday evening.


Johnson entered this tournament as a favorite to win the major tournament.  As such he was likely the most wagered on of this year’s competitors.

Dave Mason of BetOnline, however, advised Thursday that his online sportsbook will be refunding all bets on Johnson.
