Video: Johnson playing golf during leave of absence

RSS

Dustin Johnson's leave of absence from the PGA Tour doesn't seem to be keeping him off the golf course.

Janet Gretzky posted a video to Instagram Sunday night showing Johnson playing a bunker shot in front of a small gallery. Gretzky, whose daughter Paulina is engaged to Johnson, captioned the video as Johnson "putting on a clinic at member guest." (Editor's note: The video has been removed by the owner)

The video comes days after Golf Channel insider Tim Rosaforte reported that Johnson was caddying for Paulina and playing golf "almost every day" at a resort in northern Idaho.

Johnson withdrew from the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational two weeks ago, citing "personal reasons," then days later announced a voluntary leave of absence from the PGA Tour to address "personal challenges." A Golf.com report later cited a source saying the leave was in reality a six-month suspension for multiple drug violations, which the Tour subsequently denied.

Johnson missed the PGA Championship and his agent, David Winkle, confirmed following Johnson's original announcement that his client will also miss next month's Ryder Cup.
