Dustin Johnson has a chance to win his first FedEx Cup title next week at the Tour Championship, but he apparently has a personal issue to work through first.
According to numerous reports, Johnson and fiancée Paulina Gretzky, daughter of NHL great Wayne Gretzky, could be headed for a split after Paulina erased all her photos of Johnson from social media.
The Sun reported that Johnson had an affair with Yassie Safai, who allegedly belongs to the same California country club as Johnson and Gretzky. Safai has denied any relationship with Johnson.
Johnson, often soft spoken, took to Twitter to share his feelings and update his fans on the situation.
Every relationship goes through its ups and downs, but most importantly, we love each other very much and are committed to being a family. Thank you for your love and support.

Johnson, 34, and Gretzky, 29, have two sons together. They have been engaged since August.
After spending most of the year as the No. 1 golfer in the world rankings, Johnson fell behind Justin Rose last week. Despite the drop, Johnson enters the Tour Championship fourth in the FedEx Cup standings, which means a win would give him the Cup and the $10 million bonus that comes with it.
