Dustin Johnson reportedly had sex with another PGA golfer’s wife

Dustin-Johnson-Paulina-GretzkyDustin Johnson has reportedly been suspended from the PGA Tour for testing positive for cocaine. While there have always been rumors linking Johnson’s name to drugs and partying, very few details were ever known. That changed on Friday, as Golf.com also reports that Johnson is known to have had a “sexual indiscretion” with another PGA Tour player’s wife.

Simply put, Dustin doesn’t sound like a stand-up guy.

Johnson’s conduct has long been a topic of conversation among close observers of the Tour. He is often seen in bars near his home in Jupiter, Fla., and is also known to have had a sexual indiscretion with at least one wife of a PGA Tour player.

That could mean a number of things, but the implication is obviously that Johnson had sex with a co-worker’s wife. If that is true, the details aren’t all that important.

It is unclear when the alleged sexual encounter would have taken place. Johnson is engaged to Paulina Gretzky and has been dating her for quite some time, so the timing of the incident may or may not add another disturbing element to the story. Recent photos of Johnson and Gretzky seem to indicate that they are quite happy together.

Johnson was also reportedly suspended from the PGA Tour in 2012 for a positive cocaine test, though he has always maintained that he was out for several weeks with a back injury. There is obviously a lot we don’t know about him.

You can see photos of Johnson’s soon-to-be wife below:

Dustin Johnson suspended for positive cocaine test

dustin-johnsonDustin Johnson announced on Thursday that he is taking a leave of absence from golf to sort out some personal issues. Part of that is true, but the 30-year-old left out the part about him failing a drug test and being suspended.

According to Golf.com, Johnson is serving a six-month suspension for testing positive for cocaine. He has reportedly failed three drug tests during his time on the PGA Tour — one in 2009 for marijuana, one for cocaine in 2012 and now this.

Under the PGA Tour’s anti-doping policy, drug violations involving any substance deemed to be performance-enhancing are made public. Violations involving recreational drugs are not, which is why Johnson’s failed test in 2012 remained under wraps. As we explained previously, Johnson has denied that he was suspended in 2012 and always maintained that he chose to take time off for injury.

“I will use this time to seek professional help for personal challenges I have faced,” Johnson said in a statement on Thursday. “By committing the time and resources necessary to improve my mental health, physical well-being and emotional foundation, I am confident that I will be better equipped to fulfill my potential and become a consistent champion.”

The PGA Tour followed with a statement wishing Johnson well and had no comment when asked directly about his failed drug tests and suspensions.

Johnson, one of the longest hitters on the Tour, was having one of the best seasons of his professional career. He finished 4th at the US Open and 12th at the Open Championship and had seven top-10 finishes overall. He will now miss the PGA Championship and the FedEx Cup playoffs in addition to the Ryder Cup in September.

As most of you know, Johnson is engaged to Paulina Gretzky. You can see some photos of the seemingly happy couple here.

Dustin Johnson announced on Thursday that he is taking a leave of absence from golf, which came as a shock to most who have followed him this season. Johnson has seven top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour in 2014 and has played well in majors, finishing 4th at the US Open and 12th at The Open Championship earlier this month.

In addition to his performance on the course, Johnson always seems to be killing it in his personal life. We know people use social media to mask their problems, but Johnson and his fiancee Paulina Gretzky are constantly looked at with envy. The photo you see above was posted on Johnson’s Instagram earlier this month. Here are some others:

Dustin Johnson once linked to drugs

Dustin Johnson announced on Thursday that he is taking a leave of absence from golf. The 30-year-old said he is seeking professional help to deal with some personal issues but did not get into specifics.

“I am taking a leave of absence from professional golf, effective immediately,” Johnson said, via USA Today Sports. “I will use this time to seek professional help for personal challenges I have faced. By committing the time and resources necessary to improve my mental health, physical well-being and emotional foundation, I am confident that I will be better equipped to fulfill my potential and become a consistent champion.

“I respectfully ask my fans, well-wishers and the media for privacy as I embark upon this mission of self-improvement.”

Last year, Vijay Singh filed a lawsuit against the PGA Tour after he was suspended for violating the tour’s anti-doping program. Singh felt that he was being targeted after several players had violated the same policy but were only told by the PGA Tour to stop using certain substances.

Singh’s lawyers requested any information related to a “possible or actual violation of the drug program” by five golfers — Doug Barron, Mark Calcavecchia, Scott Verplank, Matt Every and Johnson. Barron, Calcavecchia and Every all had known violations, but it is unclear why Singh’s lawyers included Verplank and Johnson.

Johnson later dismissed Singh’s probe in an interview with the Golf Channel, saying he doesn’t know why Singh would single him out and that there is “nothing there.” He also said he has never been reprimanded by the PGA Tour for any drug-related violation.

Under the Tour’s anti-doping policy, drug violations involving anything deemed to be a performance-enhancing substance are made public. Violations that have to do with recreational drugs are not.

Did Dustin Johnson pull out of tourney to hang with Paulina Gretzky?

Dustin Johnson announced earlier this week that he will not be competing in the Bridgestone Invitational in Akron, Ohio. Johnson, who ranks No. 16 in the World Golf Rankings, cited a personal reason for withdrawing. Did hanging out with his lovely fiancee Paulina Gretzky have anything to do with it?

Shortly before Johnson pulled out of the Bridgestone, Gretzky posted the photo you see above on Instagram. She later deleted the picture, but the Huffington Post noted that it was captioned as follows.

“Best Caddy Ever. @djohnsonpga”

Maybe it was a coincidence. The photo could have been taken a long time ago, or Johnson could have been spending time with his soon-to-be-wife. Just because he withdrew from a tournament for personal reasons doesn’t mean those personal reasons prevent him from hanging out with Paulina.

If you want to know why Dustin is drinking in any waking moment he has with his woman, just see the photo gallery below.

UPDATE: Dustin Johnson has reportedly been suspended for six months for testing positive for cocaine. Full story here.

Charles Barkley not friends with Tiger Woods anymore

Charles BarkleyOne of the odder friendships of the sporting world has ended, sadly.

Charles Barkley says he and Tiger Woods are no longer friends despite being fairly close during Woods’ run as a top golfer.

Barkley was co-hosting with Mike Missanelli on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philly on Friday and was asked by a caller if he’s still friends with Tiger.

“We’re not friends anymore,” Barkley answered.

Missanelli, who says he does not like Tiger, believes the golfer removes himself from society. Barkley then gave some insight about Tiger’s personality.

“Well I think that when you’re as great as he has been, and this probably is a negative at some point, like he was so consumed with being the greatest golfer ever, he wasn’t a very sociable guy. Even when was a friend of mine, he wasn’t a very sociable guy. He just had a one-track mind. He just wanted to break Jack Nicklaus’ record.”

[Previously - Charles Barkley: I wish I could put some of my blackness in Tiger Woods]

Barkley then explained what he thinks Tiger needs to consider.

“Golf is just a game. Your life don’t suck. … But I think when you put yourself in that situation where your whole life revolves around how you’re doing on a golf course, you’re gonna develop a negative attitude to a certain degree, instead of saying, ‘I’ve actually got it pretty good.’ It’s like people who say I never won a championship. I understand that. I accept that. But it ain’t like I’m sitting around saying, ‘Oh my God, my life sucks. This is so miserable.”

The friendship between Barkley and Tiger may have ended in 2009, around the time of Tiger’s sex scandal. In 2011, Chuck told Mike Lupica that he hadn’t spoken with Tiger in two years.

“You think you’re friends with a guy. You talk to him once a week for 15 years. You’re like, this dude is my friend, we do things, we have fun together,” Barkley said at the time. “I haven’t talked to him in two years and I’m wondering what the hell is going on.”

Barkley also dismissed the notion that he and Michael Jordan corrupted Tiger, saying that they had no idea Woods was cheating on his wife.

It may be old news that the two are no longer friends, but these comments sure were interesting. Now, whenever a Tiger fan laments his struggles since the sex scandal, you need to say that he’s not only missing all the women, but his good pals Chuck and MJ.

Rory McIlroy’s friend fills Claret Jug with Jagermeister

Rory-McIlroy-Jagermeister

Rory McIlroy said after winning the 2014 Open Championship on Sunday that he was going to follow in the footsteps of Phil Mickelson by filling the Claret Jug with some nice wine. Mickelson revelaed last week that he drank a $40,000 bottle of wine out of the trophy when he won the tournament in 2013, so that kind of set the standard. Phil mentioned nothing about Jagermeister.

We’re not sure if Rory followed through with the wine promise or not, but we do know that one of his buddies poured Jagermeister into the Claret Jug at one point while McIlroy’s mom watched. That was either before or after the whole gang posed for a photo.

As Eye on Golf pointed out, McIlroy also celebrated the big victory with fellow major winner Justin Rose.
