PGA Golfer Dustin Johnson Tests Positive for Cocaine, Suspended 6 Months
Dustin Johnson has a charmed life. He's won $4.2 million on the PGA Tour this year so far, and he's dating a smokeshow babe in Paulina Gretzky (you may be interested in her Instagram page). However, homie can't stay away from the white girl — and we don't mean Paulina. Although he probably can't stay away from her either, nor would we blame him.
Everyone was wondering what the hell happened to Johnson, since yesterday he took a leave of absence from the game of golf entirely, in the middle of a tournament, due to "personal reasons." Some folks speculated it was because he just wanted to hang out with Paulina. Again, don't blame ya bro.
But today the real news broke: Johnson has begun serving a six-month suspension for testing positive for cocaine. Details, from Golf.com:
Dustin Johnson is serving a six-month suspension from the PGA Tour after testing positive for cocaine, a source has told Golf.com.
According to the source, Johnson has failed three drug tests: one for marijuana in 2009 and two for cocaine, in 2012 and 2014. He was previously suspended for the 2012 failed test, but that suspension was never made public. Under the PGA Tour’s drug-testing policies, the Tour is not required to announce any disciplinary actions against players who test positive for recreational drugs.
Oh. That's not good. Three failed drug tests, bro? Two in two years for coke? Johnson also reportedly had a "sexual indiscretion" with a PGA Tour player's wife recently.
Look, we know that golfers are some of the biggest party animals in sports (salute Johny Daly) since they have tons of down time to kill and are alone a lot during the tour. But this just sounds destructive. Get it together, DJ.
