Atkinson to take indefinite leave of absence

PRLog - Aug. 20, 2014 - ATLANTA -- On Wednesday August, 20, at 12:01 AM, Representatives for Professional golfer Lathan Atkinson announced that he has taken a leave of absence from the Asian/European PGA Golf Tour for an undisclosed period of time. Atkinson who turned Pro in 2013 and was on the Asian Developmental Golf Tour last year, officially announced today that he will be leaving competitive golf due to personal, medical and other unspecified reasons. This comes as a bit of a surprise since Atkinson was recently reinstated after serving a five month suspension due to a number of no shows earlier this season. The news of Atkinson comes after the recent suspension of PGA golfer Dustin Johnson for failing his third drug test in four years. It was recently discovered that both Johnson and Atkinson were scheduled to start filming and appear on a reality based television show about the every day life of professional golfers and their personal relationships. This news comes as a shock to executives and producers of the show, they have not yet been reached for comment.
