Jupiter, FL, United States (4E Sports) – Pro golfer Dustin Johnson scored a “hole-in-one” when girlfriend Paulina Gretzky, daughter of hockey great Wayne Gretzky, accepted his marriage proposal.
The pair got engaged Aug. 17 and the 24-year-old Gretzky shared the good news via Instagram Sunday, showing a photo of her and Johnson kissing with the engagement ring showing together with a caption “Never been happier.”
Johnson also announced the engagement on his Twitter account and posted an Instagram photo of his new fiancée’s hand wearing a diamond ring.
The 29-year-old Johnson and Gretzky started dating earlier this year. They first made their public debut in January when she joined Johnson in Kapalua, Hawaii for the 2013 PGA Tour where he won the opener and took home the grand prize of $1.1 million.
Prior to dating Johnson, Gretzky was linked to Los Angeles Kings player Jarrett Stoll. The golf champ was reportedly dating fellow pro golfer Natalie Gulbis.
However, both Gretzky and Johnson deny the previous romances they were supposedly a part of and are now focusing on their upcoming wedding.
