Paulina Gretzky was set up with Dustin Johnson by her mom

Paulina Gretzky made her controversial appearance on the cover of “Golf Digest,” and the subsequent feature interview about her is actually pretty interesting and informative.

In the interview, Paulina is asked about her future plans, her relationship with golfer Dustin Johnson, and her golfing background. She also revealed a cool detail about her relationship with DJ — the two were actually set up by Paulina’s mom, Janet.

“At the end of 2011, my mom played with Dustin in the Wednesday pro-am at Tiger’s tournament at Sherwood. She told Dustin about her daughter, blah-blah-blah, and invited him to the house that night,” Paulina shared. “I’m sure he was rolling his eyes, and so was I when my mom invited me over to meet this golfer she had just met. So I show up looking like a complete ragamuffin, and here’s this really cute guy. I didn’t stay long, but he was such a gentleman, so endearing. He’s always been that way to me. We exchanged numbers, and here we are.”

It’s interesting that she says they first met at the end of 2011 because the rumors about them dating didn’t come up until a full year later. Paulina began accompanying him to some of his events in early 2013, and they became engaged last August.

She says right now that her biggest focus is her relationship with Dustin and supporting his career. That means accompanying him to his events, which often causes a stir among gawking spectators, which is something she also commented on.

“Sometimes I feel like a zoo animal out there,” eh told Golf Digest. “People think I can’t hear them—but I can definitely hear you. If anything, just come over and talk to me. I’m not someone people should be afraid of. Everyone is usually very sweet, and there hasn’t been a bad moment for me. But I do feel more comfortable if I’m walking with someone. Of course sometimes I just want to watch Dustin play golf, and I hope people respect that. And you know what? They always do.”

You all got that? Next time you’re at a golf event and see Paulina there, don’t just gawk at her, say hi! She won’t bite!

Oh, and the other great part of the interview? How about Paulina saying she looked like a “ragamuffin”?! I’ve never heard that one, but that is great! Just taking a guess, too, but I highly doubt Paulina would look like a ragamuffin, whatever the heck that is.

Bubba Watson celebrated Masters victory at Waffle House


Bubba Watson won the Masters for the second time in three years on Sunday, and he was still Bubba Watson. Just like in 2012, the water works started flowing immediately for Bubba when he made his final putt. He also showcased his love for Waffle House shortly after receiving his second green jacket.

“Champ dinner @WaffleHouse,” Watson wrote on Twitter. “#hashbrowns #covered.”

After his first Masters win, Watson joked that he was going to serve grilled cheeses from Waffle House at his Masters Champions dinner the following year. He decided to go with grilled chicken, green beans, mac and cheese and cornbread instead. Will 2015 be the year he actually features Waffle House? We wouldn’t be surprised. No amount of green jackets is going to change this guy.

Bubba Watson gets love from wife Angie and son Caleb after win

Bubba Watson wife son

Bubba Watson on Sunday won the Masters for the second time in three years, becoming the 17th golfer to win the prestigious event at least twice.

Watson had his support team at Augusta National and received some special love from his wife, Angie, and young son, Caleb.

Immediately after winning, Caleb, who is just over two years old, waddled onto the green and was picked up by his dad to receive a big hug and kiss:

Bubba and Angie met in college at the University of Georgia where both were athletes. Bubba played golf, of course, while Angie played basketball.

The two adopted Caleb just over two years ago when he was a month old.

When Bubba won his first Masters two years ago, he had a matching green jacket made for his new baby son. Maybe he’ll have to get a second one that fits Caleb!

Both Bubba and Angie cried after he took home his second green jacket, making the accomplishment all the more special.

Jordan Spieth chips in for birdie (GIF)

Jordan Spieth is looking to become the youngest Masters winner in history at Augusta on Sunday. He’s off to a good start.

Spieth put his tee shot in a bunker at the 4th hole and had the spectators and viewers at home thinking he needed to get up and down to save par and remain in a tie atop the leader board. He decided to hole it instead. The 20-year-old hit a beautiful shot from the sand and it dropped in for birdie.


No word yet on whether or not Spieth’s girlfriend Annie Verret is in attendance. We wouldn’t be surprised to see her get some TV time if Jordan makes history.

Jordan Spieth may be a 20-year-old professional golfer who is in position to win the first Masters he has ever appeared in, but his girlfriend is his better half. Spieth is dating the stunning miss Annie Verret, a student at Texas Tech University.

Verret is much more than just the pretty face behind one of the most promising young golfers in the world. According to FabWags.com, Verret has made the Dean’s List at Texas Tech and was on the President’s Honor Roll twice after compiling a 4.0 GPA in the business program at Texas Tech.

Between Spieth’s golf swing and Verret’s business savvy, we may be looking at the future of power couples in sports.

Luke Donald takes 2-stroke penalty after fan reports violation

Luke Donald bunker

Luke Donald took a two-stroke penalty during his first round at the Masters on Thursday after a fan reported a violation to a rules official.

The violation occurred on the ninth hole when Donald grounded his club while in a bunker. According to the rules, you are not allowed to touch the sand in a bunker for anything other than smoothing or cleaning, so grounding your club in frustration is a violation.

The violation was reported by a fan who was nearby Donald when he grounded his club in the bunker. The fan told Yahoo! Sports’ Jay Busbee that he did not set out to report the violation, but he and a friend struck up a conversation with a rules official they spotted. He mentioned what he saw Donald do, and that set the wheels in motion for Donald to be penalized.

Donald was informed of the violation after his round and did not dispute it. He signed his scorecard after being assessed the two-stroke penalty, which gave him a first-round score of 79.

Donald actually said after his round that he knew he had committed the violation and that he brought it up to Masters committee chairman Fred Ridley. He also tweeted about the penalty and called it a “dumb mistake.”

If this sounds familiar, it’s because Tiger Woods was busted last year when a fan also called in to report a violation he committed.

Bubba Watson makes long putt on 14 during awesome second round (Video)

Bubba WatsonBubba Watson just destroyed the Masters on Friday at Augusta National, making five birdies on the back nine for a 4-under 68. His 7-under score for the tournament leads the event.

During his 5-hole stretch of birdies on 12-16, the birdie putt he sank on 14 stood out more than the others.

Did you see how much that putt broke to the left? That was not an easy read, yet it fell for Bubba. He also made a great tee shot on the par-3 16 and buried a short putt for the birdie.

Yep, things were looking great for Bubba, though he did finish his round with a bogey on 18. He still was pretty awesome during the day.
