World number one Dustin Johnson has indeed reached the pinnacle of his career, as evidenced by the numerous titles he has won and which have brought him to where he is now. As in his career, there is a lot going on in his private life, and here is everything you need to know about his romantic entanglements, juicy body details, and much-discussed net worth.
Dustin Johnson Background Information
Dustin was born on June 22, 1984, in Columbia, South Carolina, U.S.A., and is said to have been raised there by his parents. He went to Coastal Carolina University, where he was an active member of the golf team and won the Monroe Invitational and Northeast Amateur Games in 2007. He was also allowed to play for teams that won the Walker Cup and the Palmer Cup in 2007. In that year, the golfer started his career in the professional league, and in 2008 he began his PGA tour.
The talented golfer had a very successful start when he turned pro, winning the Turning Stone Resort Championship and the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. When the 2009 golf season began, Dustin was on the PGA Tour’s money list with a 15-point finish, which is remarkable considering he started his PGA Tour just a few years earlier.
Over the years, the golfer has built his professional golf career, with about 17 PGA Tour wins and 5 World Golf Championships to his name, and he emerged as the winner of the 2016 U.S. Open, which will be held at Oakmont Country Club. Dustin is also named as one of the top drivers on the PGA Tour, having claimed 5 wins between 2008 and 2015. His win at the 2018 Sentry Tournament of Champions made him the third player in the history of the PGA Tour to win a Tour title in every season of his 11 seasons, a feat only legendary golfers like Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods have achieved.
Dustin Johnson’s Affairs & Controversies
The talented player has not only made headlines through his career successes but has also been associated with scandalous affairs outside his relationship with his fiancée Paulina Gretzky. He even has a connection to Alli Mackenzie, the former wife of a colleague Will MacKenzie, who is a member of the pro-golf tour.
Dustin and Alli are said to have been seen shopping in a supermarket in South Florida, and the couple is said to have made loving gestures towards each other. Alli, however, denied allegations that her time in the grocery store was anything but romantic, but that she was simply a good friend and that she only wished the couple and their children a happy home. The golfer also rejected the allegations, and his fiancée stood by him on the grounds that they had a wonderful relationship and did not intend to cheat on each other or separate in the foreseeable future.
Other controversies the golfer has been associated with include a series of failed drug tests between 2009 and 2014, and in July 2014 he finally took time out from his career and claimed that he was struggling with some “personal challenges” but there were rumors that this was related to his drug problem.
