The Dustin Johnson saga continues to be strange.
Johnson, who said he was taking a leave of absence from professional golf which incidentally coincided with a Golf.com report that he was drug tested and caught with cocaine, is just hanging out with his fiancee Paulina Gretzky in Idaho.
According to Tim Rosaforte of Golf Channel, it sounds like they're having a ball.
"Most thought [the announcement] was a hint that he was going to a treatment center," Rosaforte said Wednesday. "Instead, he's been up in Northern Idaho at Gozzer Ranch [Golf and Lake Club], hanging out with the Gretzky family, caddying for Paulina in the club's ladies' member-guest, and playing a lot of golf, playing almost every day.
"He shot 61 this week, could have been a 59."
Well OK then.
Selfishly I'm bummed that DJ isn't playing the PGA Championship or the Ryder Cup but I do hope he gets better and comes back next year with a clear head.
If he gets that from playing golf in Idaho with his future wife, then so be it.
In case you were wondering, Paulina just recently went paintballing with her mother.
