You know Dustin Johnson, the laid-back bomber, but here are some things you may not know about the PGA TOUR star.
1. His father-in-law is the Great One
He is married to Paulina Gretzky, Wayne Gretzky’s daughter. Think there will be any athleticism in their kids’ DNA?
2. He was arrested when he was 17 for buying bullets
He said he got tied up in a bad situation, but he learned from it and he was, “Never a bad person.”
3. He was a big partier…
…but has since reformed himself. He took a leave of absence from the tour last year, and has come back a better player and person. He is widely regarded to be the best player on tour without a major title.
4. In 8 years on the PGA TOUR he has already made over $30 million in prize money
Not too shabby…
5. He is one of the longest hitters on the PGA TOUR
He is know for hitting massive drives, perhaps none more famous than this one on the 72nd hole at last year’s US Open.
