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.

LPGA golfers ‘frustrated’ over Paulina Gretzky making Golf Digest cover

Paulina Gretzky Golf Digest

Paulina Gretzky is on the cover of the May 2014 issue of “Golf Digest,” and that has left some LPGA golfers frustrated.

Gretzky is only tangentially linked to golf through her fiancee, Dustin Johnson, so the selection of her to appear on the cover as opposed to other women who actually play on tour and win events is troubling for some.

Stacy Lewis, who has won two majors, expressed frustration to The New York Times.

“It’s frustrating for female golfers,” Lewis said via The Times. “It’s the state of where we’ve always been. We don’t get the respect for being the golfers we are. Obviously, Golf Digest is trying to sell magazines, but at the same time you like to see a little respect for the women’s game.”

Golfer Juli Inkster is similarly frustrated.

“It’s frustrating because it’s Golf Digest, it’s not Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue,” Inkster told the New York Times. “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.”

She’s right — Jerry Tarde is the magazine’s editor in chief. He explained the decision to put The Little Great One on the cover.

“Sports figures, celebrities and models have appeared on Golf Digest covers since the magazine’s beginning. Paulina ranks at the high end of the golf celebrity scene today, and she has a compelling story to tell. She also might get some new people interested in the game.”

The Times notes that Golf Channel personality Holly Saunders and supermodel Kate Upton (who posed alongside Arnold Palmer) were the last two women to appear on the cover. The last LPGA tour winner to appear on the cover was Lorena Ochoa in 2008.

Look, they can be frustrated over the decision and everyone understands why. Putting Paulina on the cover of “Golf Digest” is a stretch. But they’re a media company and in the business of selling magazines and attracting eyeballs. Putting Paulina on the cover accomplishes that. End of story.

At least Paulina does have some support:

Paulina Gretzky appears in new TaylorMade commercial (Video)

Paulina Gretzky is now engaged to PGA golfer Dustin Johnson, which I guess brings her that much closer to the game of golf. Earlier this month, we were surprised by a video Gretzky posted on Instagram showing her impressive golf swing. We were much less surprised to see her make a cameo in the new TaylorMade commercial.

Johnson is one of TaylorMade’s best clients, so it makes sense that his fiancee would be featured in an advertisement for the company that endorses him. TaylorMade obviously needed an attractive woman for their new “Speed Police” marketing idea, and we all know how Paulina can, well, bring the heat. This probably won’t be her last commercial.

Paulina Gretzky has a pretty good golf swing (Video)

Paulina Gretzky dates PGA golfer Dustin Johnson, but that does not necessarily mean she knows how to swing the sticks. We know Paulina is phenomenal at photo shoots and partying near outdoor fireplaces, but you might be surprised to see how well she can swing a golf club.

As you can see from the video above that Gretzky posted on Instagram, she actually has a pretty good stroke (we won’t go there). I mean look at this follow through:

Paulina Gretzky reportedly caught on fire while hanging out at an outdoor bar

Paulina-GretzkyPaulina Gretzky loves to party. Anyone who has ever spent a few minutes flipping through her Instagram photos could tell you that. Apparently her parents never told her that she needs to take extra caution when partying around an open flame.

According to TMZ, Paulina was spotted smoking a cigarette on the outdoor patio area of The Tipsy Goat in Thousand Oaks, Calif. on Tuesday night. When she turned to flick her cigarette butt into one of the lounge’s fire pits, a scary scene reportedly broke out.

We’re told as she turned … a corner of Paulina’s sweater slipped into the pit, and before she knew it the entire thing was engulfed in flames.

Eyewitnesses say Paulina and several bar patrons ripped off her sweater — or what was left of it — and onlookers jumped into action, extinguishing the flames.”

Paulina is supposedly fine and did not need medical attention. There was no word on if she was drinking or not, though history would tell us there is a good chance she wasn’t sober. To make matters worse, TMZ added that Paulina was once asked to leave The Tipsy Goat because she was dancing on the fire pit. And her sweater didn’t catch fire then? Go figure.

We know Dustin Johnson likes to party with his fiancee, but he may need to keep a closer eye on her. It sounds like The Great One’s daughter can be a liability.

Paulina Gretzky shares video of her ‘secret’ photo shoot

Paulina-Gretzky-photo-shootHappy Friday, everyone. Paulina Gretzky, daughter of The Great One and soon-to-be wife of PGA star Dustin Johnson, got fairly close to naked at some point earlier this week for what she described as a “secret shoot.” Since Paulina is always so giving and courteous, she wanted to make sure her Instagram followers got the first peak at what’s to come.

We have seen Miss Paulina in a bikini on numerous occasions, but it never seems to get old. She’s truly an artist. In terms of modeling, I have to admit that I have a strong preference for Matthew Stafford’s girlfriend’s drunk modeling session that she recently shared with us from Costa Rica. I love you, Paulina, but that simply can’t be topped.
