PGA superstar Dustin Johnson has been partnered up with the old man of his girlfriend, Paulina Gretzky, for three rounds of play at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Yep, with Thursday’s play in the bag, Johnson will be navigating the treaherous terrain that is the Monterey Peninsula with none other than The Great One, Wayne Gretzky. Talk about awkward, right? Not so fast, says Johnson, who by all appearances seems to be quite fond of the family of his new girlfriend. And ever since they became a confirmed item since rumors began to swirl in early January, Johnson and Gretzky have been nearly inseparable, seen on numerous occasions spending time enjoying the company of one another. With that in mind, it’s presumable that Johnson has met and hung out with the tightly knit Gretzky clan, and on Thursday, Johnson assured The Golf Channel that there would be no awkwardness between himself and Big Daddy Gretzky. Johnson said that Gretzky is a “great guy” and that his girlfriend is a “great girl.” Before teeing off on Thursday with Wayne Gretzky and fellow foursome members pro golfer Pat Perez and businessman Michael Lund, insisted all was well, saying, “We’re going to have a good time.” Of course, the lovely Miss Paulina Gretzky was on hand to watch the two play together. And of course again, someone was savvy enough to snap some photographs. Wow. Not accustomed to Miss Paulina Gretzky being dressed in such a way. Perhaps it’s her father’s presence. Or maybe it’s just chilly. But as far as the two lovebirds are concerned, their budding relationship is anything but chilly. “We’re both really happy right now and obviously she’s got a great family,” said Johnson. Played like a true champ.
