Yes, seriously, she is prego. With the Ryder Cup just a couple of days away, Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky announce that they are expecting a child. This after Dustin took a leave of absence for a cocaine issue he has been dealing with.
Even before that, Golf Digest was taking heat for the cover they had that featured Gretzky on the cover since she’s not a pro golfer making it look as if she’s just eye candy. Yet, Michelle Wie was featured on the latest cover so all is good on that.
Despite all of these things, the young couple has something to kinda feel happy and chill about. It’s very cool to see as I personally believe that this will just make these two a lot more mature with how they approach life. No guarantees, but bringing a child to the world is a very powerful thing.
Here’s the pic from Paulina’s Instagram.
So congrats to those two and hopefully we’ll see DJ back out on the course again! Bubba’s feeling lonely!

The latest Golf Digest cover stirred some controversy with Dustin Johnson’s fiance Paulina Gretzky rocking the cover posing with a golf club in yoga pants. Gretzky is also the daughter of hockey legend Wayne Gretzky and came to fame when she started taking selfies of herself on Twitter although she was apparently already doing some modeling. There were angered LPGA Tour players that showed their disgust about the cover.
two time major winner and former world no.1 Stacy Lewis on the cover according to Karen Krause of the New York times: “It’s frustrating for female golfers. It’s kind of the state of where we’ve always been. We don’t get respect for being the golfers that we are. Obviously, Golf Digest is trying to sell magazines. But at the same time you’d like to see a little respect for the women’s game.”
Hall of fame Juli Inkster on the cover also according to Karen Krause: “It’s frustrating because it’s Golf Digest; it’s not Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue,” Inkster said, adding: “I think they should maybe recognize some of the great women golfers that we have. It’s like, What do you have to do to get a little respect? I’m guaranteeing you right now, it was not a woman editor who chose that cover.”
Even Inbee Park who I have mad respect for and is one of my favorite players now after she absolutely terrorized, destroyed and back-handed the golf world last season after nearly becoming the first golf ever to win all four majors in a year. She ended up with three. She simply said when asked about the cover, “Who’s that”? according to Karen Krause. “That’s just been the way it is for over 20, 30 years.” Inbee said shrugging.
And now, even the LPGA Commisoner stepped up and made a statement about the cover. This, from LPGA.com:
“Obviously we’re disappointed and frustrated by the editorial direction (and timing) Golf Digest has chosen with the announcement of its most recent magazine cover.
If a magazine called Golf Digest is interested in showcasing females in the game, yet consistently steers away from the true superstars who’ve made history over the last few years, something is clearly wrong.
Inbee Park wins 3-straight major championships in 2013. Stacy Lewis, in 2012, becomes the first American to win Rolex Player of the Year since 1994. Lexi Thompson and Lydia Ko set historical benchmarks while blossoming as the Tour’s youngest ever champions. And evidently, not one has been “cover worthy” for Golf Digest. “Growing the game” means a need for more role models and in these exciting times for women’s golf, the LPGA is overflowing with them.
At this point, I’m done talking about it and I hope the attention of the media and fans will shift in the proper direction. The true stars representing women’s golf have a grand stage this weekend at the Kraft Nabisco Championship. I’m confident that the year’s first major championship will result in another compelling champion and the traditional Sunday leap into Poppie’s Pond will grab the media spotlight it so deserves.”
Those were the words of LPGA Tour commissioner Mike Whan.
So, what’s your thoughts on the commish’ statement? Do you agree? Disagree? In my opinion, I could agree with it but at the same time, Kate Upton was on a recent cover of Golf Digest too (She fine yo) although she was with Arnold Palmer. Also, like Inbee said, stuff like this has been going for years so why complain about it now? It can go either way at this point but in general, I definitely think the LPGA needs some more love because it’s a great tour with great players but that’s just a general statement. Leave your thoughts on this controversial story below! This should be fun.

Everyone’s favorite golf girlfriend, hockey daughter, model girl lady person is back! This time, she made her way to the cover of Golf Digest and she took some pretty sweet pics. I guess she really does enjoy the game because she’s “competitive” (According to her) which I guess so if you’re the daughter of the greatest scorer in hockey history. She’s definitely been in competition with the other chicks posting selfies on Twitter! Anyway, here’s the pics courtesy of GolfDigest.com because I know how much y’all dig blondes!

As we all know, Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky are going to be getting married sometime soon and as usual she was in support of her man as she attended the Tournament of Champions at the gorgeous Kapalua Plantation Course. However, it looks like she’s not rocking a bra under all of the tight clothing and it’s surely an attraction for men despite the fact that she has a man in DJ already but hey, us dudes are quite the creatures aren’t we? She even says that she doesn’t think about what she posts on social media and of course not because the pictures she’s posted pretty much boosted her modeling career.
“I don’t take the time to think, ‘OK, should I post the photo that has my boobs in it or the one where I’m in a turtleneck?’” Paulina said according to the Kansas City Star.
So, on that note, here’s the picture ladies and gentlemen. I’m out!

On the golf course! No, for real though, he and his fiance that all the guys drool over (Paulina Gretzky) were at the AMA’s last night as Paulina presented the award for Favorite Male R&B/Soul artist which went to Justin Timberlake who spotted Dustin Johnson in the crowd and performed a pretend golf swing on stage according to GolfChannel.com. Now, I didn’t see the AMA’s because honestly I don’t really care. I was watching football as my Chicago Bears played the Rams (Sadly ending in a loss) and then I listened to the Patriots vs Broncos game on the radio and I was also on here writing because I love doing it and I love the fact that you guys read the work and share your thoughts! Anyway, it was good to see that DJ and his girl had a good time because sometimes, Tour life can be a grind but then again seeing someone like Miley Cyrus on stage could be a stressful sight to the human eye (hope she gets her act together) so maybe it’s still a grind but other than that it’s a nice night out and a chance to spend time with the lady. Could his relationship with Paulina effect his play on the course? Because I’m sure she’s one of those spoiled rich daughters that runs with a rich athlete.
I mean, she’s the daughter of arguably the greatest hockey player of all-time so you know she has to be spoiled, you can’t say that she isn’t a little. I mean, I’m sure she’s nice and all but you know she’s walking with her nose in the air a little bit. I mean, the pictures she takes, the random popularity she’s gotten, that tan she has (Why do white people get tan anyway? No offense, I love you guys!), etc and sometimes a spoiled girl can effect one’s job but only time will tell. I’m not trying to be rude but sometimes that’s the case you know? So, what do you think? Did you see DJ and Paulina at the AMA’s on Sunday Funday? Was it a shock to see her present an award or did you already know she was going to do so? On a golf note, do you think there relationship could effect DJ on the course or do you think it’s no big deal? Let me know in the comments as always!
