World No. 1 Dustin Johnson is taking the week off before going to Augusta National to defend his Masters title.

Johnson withdrew from the 2021 Valero Texas Open at TPC San Antonio in Texas on Monday, and will be replaced in the field by Ryan Brehm. Johnson last appeared in the event in 2015, finishing T-6. He most recently went 1-1-1 and failed to qualify for the Round of 16 at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Brehm has two Korn Ferry Tour wins in his career and is coming off a T-11 at the Puerto Rico Open last month and a T-34 last weekend at the Corales Puntacana Resort and Club Championship.
