Paulina Gretzky Says ‘Yes’ To Pro Golfer Dustin Johnson

Paulina Gretzky Says 'Yes' To Pro Golfer Dustin JohnsonGolfer Dustin Johnson is having a pretty good year. Oh, and he just got engaged to Paulina Gretzky, daughter of The Great One, Wayne Gretzky. Yup, things are looking up for Johnson.

‘She said yes’

He posted the picture on Instagram, with the caption “She said yes!!!!!”

Johnson is having another solid season and is currently ranked No. 22 in the world. The powerful driver—he is fifth on tour with an average driving distance of 303.3 yards—is generally good for a win or two and several top-10 finishes per year.

‘A legend’s daughter’

He is still searching for his first major win, but he has put himself in contention before. His best career finish at a major came in 2011, when he tied for second at the British Open.

Gretzky is perhaps best known for two things: being a legend’s daughter and posting pictures on her Instagram account. Now she can add being Johnson’s fiancee to that list. Or perhaps Johnson will now be known for being Gretzky’s fiance.

How many guys do you think are mourning right now because of this news? When do you think will be Paulina Gretzky and Dustin Johnson’s special day?

U.S. Golfers Pull Out Of South Korean Tournament

U.S. Golfers Pull Out Of South Korean TournamentDustin Johnson and Zach Johnson have decided to skip the Ballantine’s Championship in South Korea, according to a report from Reuters (via Yahoo!).

‘Threaten to strike South Korea’

You can hardly blame an American athlete for wanting to avoid the region. North Korea’s regime under Kim Jong Un continues to threaten to strike South Korea without warning and has missiles in place ready to fire, and Kim continues to hurl venom at the United States.

‘Skip the tournament’

According to Reuters’ report, the top-ranked player in the tournament will be No. 7 Louis Oosthuizen, while other recognizable players will include South Korea’s Yang Yong-eun, British Open champion Paul Lawrie and Paul Casey.  While the American pair will skip the tournament due to political unrest in the region, they also sacrifice the chance to win the $2.88 million prize for first place.

Dustin Johnson has had a very solid season, with four top-13 finishes including a win at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions and a 13th-place finish at last week’s Masters. He currently ranks No. 17 in the world. Zach Johnson hasn’t been as successful, with just one top-20 finish on the year and a ranking of No. 30. He finished a disappointing 35th at the Masters. Despite the pair pulling out of the tournament, plenty of talented players will still compete.

Was pulling out of the Ballantine’s Championship in South Korea a good move for both Dustin Johnson and Zach Johnson? Who says ‘Yay’ and who says ‘Nay’?
