SAWGRASS, FL (WRDW/WAGT) -- Talk about deja vu.

Dustin Johnson, who lost out on a chance at the Masters two years ago with an injured back after he fell down a flight of stairs, now has a brother who can literally share in that pain.

That's because his brother and caddie, Austin Johnson, fell up a flight of stairs in their Florida rental home during the Players Championship, according to Golfworld.

“Those stairs, man, they’ll get you,” Johnson said. “He was carrying the stuff in the house after TPC on Sunday night and slipped going up the stairs.”

Austin reportedly broke a bone in his left hand due to the incident.
