Dustin Johnson putting controversy causes US Open drama (Video)

Dustin-Johnson-US-Open-putt

Dustin Johnson may have caused his ball to move as he was addressing it on the fifth green at the U.S. Open Sunday, and it could result in a penalty stroke.

A rules official approached Johnson on the 12th tee to inform him that a video review showed his ball did, in fact, move before he hit the putt. While it didn’t appear that Johnson addressed the ball, it’s possible the vibrations from his putter being placed down next to the ball caused it to move. Here’s the video:

The official later explained that he asked Johnson if there was something other than his actions that could have caused the ball to move. Johnson said he wasn’t sure, so he was told he could be facing a one-stroke penalty after the round pending further review. He was in the lead at 5-under at the time.

From the way the official explained it on air, it sounds as though the belief is that Johnson is responsible for the ball moving.

Several of Johnson’s fellow golfers immediately took to Twitter to rip the USGA.

Dustin Johnson, girlfriend Paulina Gretzky have a blast together

Dustin-Johnson-Paulina-Gretzky

Is there a couple in professional sports that has more fun than Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky?

Gretzky, Johnson’s fiancee and the legendary Wayne Gretzky’s daughter, has shared a number of Instagram photos and videos over the years of her and D.J. partying or goofing around. They’ve toned it down a bit now that they have a 1-year-old son together, but Paulina shared a classic clip of her and Dustin dancing a little while back.

Here’s the video of the two dancing fools, which contains NSFW language:

We all have a lil Erika Jayne in us @djohnsonpga @theprettymess @bravoandy

That seems about right for these two. We won’t even get into their tendency to talk dirty to one another on social media. When it comes to PDA, D.J. and Paulina are pros. Good for them.

Dustin Johnson, Paulina Gretzky love talking dirty on social media

Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky have been together for nearly three years and have a child together, but it appears the romantic spark is still very much there. If you want proof of that, look no further than the couple’s social media activity.

Paulina is always posting provocative photos on Instagram. While that might make some fianc├ęs jealous, Johnson loves it. How do we know that? Check out the photo Gretzky posted on Tuesday and the comment Johnson left:

As Barstool Sports points out, this is nothing new for Dustin and Paulina. When Gretzky shared a photo that featured her wearing lingerie about a month ago, it was more of the same:

Dustin Johnson, Alli MacKenzie reportedly spotted at supermarket together

Dustin Johnson

Dustin Johnson is once again the subject of some juicy rumors, but we have our doubts about whether the latest gossip means much of anything.

Radar Online reported this week that Johnson was spotted strolling down the aisles of a Florida Publix supermarket with Alli MacKenzie back on Aug. 17. Radar claims that some incredibly grainy photos show Johnson and MacKenzie walking together, with one witness saying the two “looked super flirty and like they were going to kiss.”

MacKenzie told Radar she just happened to bump into Johnson, who is engaged to Paulina Gretzky and has a child with her, at the store.

“I ran into an old friend buying baby food for his son at Publix,” she said. “I wish Paulina, Tatum and Dustin the very best start in their lives together.”

There’s really no reason to believe thats a lie. For starters, Johnson and MacKenzie were each pushing their own shopping cart. In one of Radar’s photos, two people (you can’t even tell who they are) are seen hugging. Even if the photo shows Johnson and MacKenzie, it could have easily been a “heyyy good to see you!” hug.

Of course, people will jump to conclusions given the alleged history between Johnson and MacKenzie. Buried in a report that claimed Johnson was suspended from the PGA Tour for cocaine use last year was a tidbit about the 31-year-old having a “sexual indiscretion” with “at least one wife of a PGA Tour player.” MacKenzie is the ex-wife of golfer Will MacKenzie, so you can probably figure out the rest for yourself. If not, MacKenzie addressed some of the rumors here.

Personally, I can’t see D.J. being dumb enough to be that casual about things if he was cheating on Paulina with a woman he supposedly has a history with.

Dustin Johnson buys $4.95 million Florida home with private island

Dustin Johnson mansion

Dustin Johnson is stepping on up in the world.

The No. 9-ranked golfer in the world purchased a waterfront home in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. for $4.95 million, the Los Angeles Times reports.

The mansion features nearly 8,200 square feet of living space, with five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. There is a wine room, pool with grotto and water slide, a dock for a yacht, and more. The home should be more than enough room for DJ, fiancee Paulina Gretzky, and their young son.

Here’s a tour of the ballerific home:

Dustin Johnson labeled a ‘choker’ on his Wikipedia page

Dustin Johnson putt

Dustin Johnson on Sunday blew a chance to win the U.S. Open or force an 18-hole playoff against Jordan Spieth when he three-putted the final hole at Chambers Bay. It was bad news for his Wikipedia page.

Shortly after Johnson came a few inches away from winning his first major, someone labeled him a “choker” on Wikipedia.

Johnson had a putt for eagle to win the U.S. Open, but all he had to do was two-putt for the tie. The fact that he missed the short putt coming back will haunt him for the rest of his career.

We have seen professional athletes have some embarrassing changes made to their Wikipedia pages in the past, but that’s got to be one of the worst.

Dustin Johnson blows US Open by three-putting on final hole (Video)

Dustin Johnson putt

Dustin Johnson blew a great chance to win his first major by 3-putting on the final hole of the US Open at Chambers Bay on Sunday.

Johnson entered the final hole at -4 for the tournament, a shot behind Jordan Spieth, who birdied 18 to move to five under. Johnson had an eagle opportunity to win the tournament, but he missed. Then he had a birdie putt that would have tied him with Spieth and sent it to a playoff Monday, but he missed that.

Johnson tapped in for par to remain four under, which left him tied for second with Louis Oosthuizen. It was a strong showing for Johnson, but he will be remembered for his choke job, unfortunately.

Aside from 3-putting on the final hole, DJ also bogeyed 10, 11, and 13, which really hurt his round.
