Come for the golf, stay for the Gretzky, as the saying goes.
I made that up. No one's ever said that.
On June 19th, Dustin Johnson won the US Open. There to greet the 30-year-old were his fiance, Paulina Gretzky and their son, Tatum.
As soon as Gretzky, a singer/model, came into the camera shot, no one cared about golf.
One WEEI writer put it best:
"No one has ever played the game the way Paulina Gretzky did on U.S. Open Sunday.
As Dustin Johnson hit the back nine, clinging to a narrow lead made even more tenuous by the surreal threat of a possible penalty stroke coming, you couldn’t help but imagine what Paulina would have in store for the masses if he managed to hold on.
"And she delivered a record-setting performance. Practically knocking Jack Nicklaus to the ground. A sexy hair-flip for the ages that Fox managed to put on super slo-mo.
"And a white minidress/thong combo which set a record that may never be broken for as long as golf is being played."
Cameras followed the couple as they walked the steps of Pennsylvania's Oakmont Country Club, which was unfortunate for Gretzky, as she was wearing a skintight wight tennis dress that left very little to the imagination.
The model risked an upskirt shot on more than one occasion as she and Johnson made their way to the trophy ceremony, much to the delight of men everywhere.
You know what? I don't think she minded.
Gretzky and Johnson, who has admitted to substance abuse and was accused of sleeping with other golfers' wives, got engaged in 2013 after dating for seven months. Johnson took some time off from the game to focus on his persona life.
Gretzky gave birth to the couple's first son, Tatum in January 2015.
