Dustin Johnson has sold his Florida-waterfront mansion to a race-car driving executive from Honeywell Automation for $5.2 million, according to a report from therealdeal.com.
Johnson purchased the Jupiter property for $3.7 million in 2011. The home is 12,296 square feet, according to Florida records, and includes a putting green, private dock, gourmet kitchen, media room, eight bathrooms and a pool.
One standout feature of the home, which sits on a .72 acre lot, is access to the waters of the Loxahatchee River just out the back door, which Johnson was said to use as a target for some of his prodigious drives in this 2011 feature by Sports Illustrated's Alan Shipnuck. That access comes with a price, though. The total tax bill for the house in 2014 was $72,821.93
The new owner of the home is Alexandre Ismail, the President and CEO for Automation and Control Solutions at Honeywell, who is described in his Honeywell bio as an avid race car driver and winner of the 2008 Morocco Classic Race.
Johnson has not played on the PGA Tour since July. He announced July 31 he was taking a leave of absence “to seek professional help for personal challenges I have faced,” though Golf.com reported that he was serving a six-month suspension from the PGA Tour after testing positive for cocaine, his third failed drug test.
