  In an interview with the Golf Channel's Jason Sobel, Dustin Johnson distanced himself from fellow Tour pro Vijay Singh, who recently requested documents related to the "actual or possible violation" of the PGA Tour's Anti-Doping Program of five current professional golfers, including DJ, during the discovery period of his suit against the PGA Tour.
"I don’t know why he would call me out," Johnson told Sobel. "Obviously, he’s in a situation where he’s looking to better himself somehow, but there’s nothing there."
Johnson, an eight-time PGA Tour winner, most recently at the HSBC Champions in November, went on to say that he's never run afoul of the Tour's drug policy.
Q: Have you ever been punished or reprimanded for any kind of violation? A: No. Q: Does it anger you to see your name in connection with that story? A: Not really. I don’t care. He’s in trouble, not me. Q: Would you consider any type of legal action for your name being used? A: No. I’m out of it. Don’t want anything to do with it. I don’t care.
