Dustin Johnson has issued a statement amid growing questions over the former world No.1’s relationship with fiancee Paulina Gretzky.
Suggestions the pair have split have been rife after Johnson appeared to have been deleted from her Instagram page.
Gretzky, 29, appears to have deleted all images with the 2016 US Open winner, who this week lost his No.1 world ranking to Justin Rose.
The couple have two children together, Tatum and Rivers, aged three and one respectively.
Now Johnson – part of Team USA for the upcoming Ryder Cup – has responded.

"Every relationship goes through its ups and downs, but most importantly, we love each other very much and are committed to being a family," Johnson wrote.
"Thank you for your love and support."
Gretzky, the daughter of ice hockey legend Wayne, began dating Johnson in 2012 and they became engaged a year later.
Gretzky has been pictured supporting Johnson on the PGA Tour and joined him in celebrating his US Open success in 2016.
She had been expected to again be in attendance at the Ryder Cup.

Johnson, 34, is set to be paired with Brooks Koepka in Paris and has fired a warning at Europe’s players.
“I’m definitely looking forward to partnering up with Brooks,” he said.
“I think we’d make a pretty good team – and I feel bad for anyone who would have to play us.”
Before then, Johnson is scheduled to play in the PGA Tour’s season-finale Tour Championship next week.
Gretzky is yet to comment.
