It’s Dustin Johnson’s birthday and to celebrate Paulina Gretzky showed off her golf swing to the internet’s glowing approval.
On Thursday, Golf dot com’s Claire Rogers posted a drive from The Great One’s daughter, and it quickly became one of the few tweets in Golf Twitter history with unanimous approval.
“Paulina!” really says it all here, as Gretzky’s swing looks better than the majority of our staff’s. That’s a hell of a lot of rotation and clubhead speed, and the comments underneath the original post are overwhelmingly positive. “Yeah swing is getting Gooooooood!!” says one user. “Her move is so good. Wtf” writes another. Even the doubters have to give it to her: “That is not bad at all. Far better than what I was expecting.”
We know that DJ has been giving late-night golf lessons to his wife. He even helped with her swing before the PGA Championship. That’s dedication. Johnson has also given some tutorials to his young son who already knows what he’s doing. This entire family is a golf powerhouse.
Our one quibble is that it does look like Gretzky is hitting into the group right in front of her. There are seemingly two carts resting not far from where she’s aiming her drive. With the power behind that swing, we might be witnessing a concussion in the making. Hopefully, everyone’s alright. We definitely know Paulina’s doing just fine.
