MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) -- PGA Tour winner Dustin Johnson has been arrested on a charge of driving under the influence.
Johnson, a 24-year-old in his second full season on tour, was booked into the J. Reuben Long Detention Center Monday and released 22 minutes later, according to the facility's Web site.
Johnson won at Pebble Beach in February, his second career PGA Tour win. He stands ninth in this year's FedEx Cup points race and has earned almost $1.6 million.
A call to Johnson's agent, David Winkle, was not immediatelyreturned.
Johnson played college golf at Coastal Carolina and makes his home in Myrtle Beach. Johnson is scheduled to play at this week's PGA Tour event, the Shell Houston Open in Humble, Texas.
