Call this the Dustin Johnson/Natalie Gulbis update part three. Last weekend Gulbis was following Johnson around for the Tournament of Champions at Kapalua and according to Golf.com, confirmed she and Dustin were dating. Here was the exact excerpt from the story: “Following Johnson’s 73, Gulbis confirmed they were dating but said with a laugh, ‘I’ll let Dustin handle our PR.’ Reached Saturday evening, he declined comment.”
In our story, we noted how Johnson pulled out of this week’s Sony Open to handle some things at home. The New York Post later said he was going home to settle matters with Amanda Caulder, his college girlfriend. We wondered if Gulbis’ announcement had killed Dustin’s game, and it appeared as if that was the case.
Well Johnson is tired of people talking about his business publicly, and he addressed the media to set things straight.
