Dustin Johnson is still working with Butch Harmon, says Dustin Johnson

Dustin Johnson -- the future Mr. Paulina Gretzky -- is having himself quite a nice Sunday in the final round of the Tour Championship in Atlanta.

Johnson is 3 under on the round and tied for second place with Jordan Spieth and Steve Stricker, but he's not doing it under the watchful eye of a new teacher.

Rumors and reports surfaced several weeks ago claiming Johnson had gone back to working with his Coastal Carolina University coach, Allen Terrell, but Johnson says he is still being taught by Butch Harmon and son, Claude.

"Allen is going to help me with my golf school in Myrtle Beach," Johnson said, according to Golf Channel.

Since winning the wind-shortened, season-opening Hyundai Tournament of Champions, Johnson has not been much of a threat, posting an equal number of top-10 finishes and missed cuts in 2013 (4).

Harmon, for his part, already lost Nick Watney earlier this season as the 2012 Barclays champion began working with Todd Anderson.
