The US PGA Tour said that golfer Dustin Johnson's leave of absence was voluntary, and not a suspension by the tour for a failed drug test. "With regard to media reports that Dustin Johnson has been suspended by the PGA Tour, this is to clarify that Mr Johnson has taken a voluntary leave of absence and is not under a suspension from the PGA Tour," the statement said.
