Meanwhile, a woman who was said by British tabloids Daily Mail and The Sun as being at the center of the issue, issued a denial on Instagram. She has since deleted it but it stressed that she is not and has never been in a relationship with Johnson.
“I met Dustin Johnson at Sherwood Country Club. I have run into him at Sherwood maybe 4 times since then and yes briefly spoke with him, like I’m sure any avid golfer and member would,” she wrote, via the New York Post. “I am sure he is a great person but we do not have a close friendship. I have never met Paulina Gretzky and do not know the Gretzky family, but again, I am sure they are great people.”
