As spectacular as Sergio Garcia’s showing at the Masters was this year, it’s hard not to think about what could have been. There hasn’t been a golfer on the planet hotter this year than Dustin Johnson, and his freak injury in Augusta might have been the only thing keeping him from the green jacket.

This week, however, Johnson returns to action as the odds-on favorite, despite a weeks-long layoff. By all accounts, DJ looks ready to get back in the game as he prepares for a summer filled with huge events.

The stats are there for DJ, and they’re almost comical. Nobody drives it further (1st on Tour, 316.2 yards) or hits more greens in regulation (75.25%). On the off chance Johnson misses a green, he also happens to be 20th on Tour in scrambling. It simply doesn’t get any better than this.
