PGA star Dustin Johnson immediately scored with NHL legend Wayne Gretzky when he was courting his future wife.
Paulina Gretzky, 33, has revealed on an Ask Me Anything Instagram session that Johnson made quite an impression on her dad when they were first introduced.
“He told me I should marry him,” Paulina replied to one listener asking about her famous father’s first impressions.
“The best dating advice I ever received was from my dad,” she replied to another question about dating. “He told me to weigh the pros and cons of dating someone. If there are few cons and many pros, then don’t rule them out right away. If the cons outweigh the pros, then don’t try to be the person who thinks they can change them.”
Apparently, that sealed the deal for Johnson and the couple was engaged in 2013. But it was a long engagement and golf’s first couple didn’t make it official until April, when they got hitched at posh Blackberry Farm in Tennessee.
On Sunday, she shared a gushy photo of Johnson giving her a smooch at the star-studded bash, also attended by the twosome’s two young sons.
Johnson’s glittering career has come under fire after he announced his resignation from the PGA to join the controversial Saudi-support LIV Golf. He was paid $125 million to make the switch.
One of his sponsors, RBC (Royal Bank of Canada), terminated its sponsorship of him in the wake of the brouhaha.
Johnson said of the decision: “I chose what’s best for me and my family.”
