How did Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzy meet?

The pair first met briefly in 2009. However, they started to get to know each other in a very unique and funny way in 2011.

After Johnson played a tournament with Gretzky’s mom, Janet Jones, she invited Johnson to their house after and set her daughter up spontaneously. 

In fact, Gretzky was very unprepared to meet Johnson and explained, “At the end of 2011, my mom played with Dustin in the Wednesday pro-am at Tiger Wood's tournament at Sherwood. She told Dustin about her daughter, blah-blah-blah, and invited him to the house that night..."

"...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.”

When did Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzy get engaged?

Johnson and Gretzky have been engaged since 2013 but they haven’t had their wedding yet because of their busy schedules and wanting to do it at the right time for them.

Gretzky even said in 2014, “We wanted so badly to do it this fall, but with his schedule and all it's been hard to set a date. It'll be our special day, and we just want it to be right and to fit.”

The couple kept almost setting a date and then pushing it back through the years because Johnson needed to prioritize his golf career.

Most recently, a source said in 2018, “Having a wedding has not been a huge priority for them because they already feel very married. And it’s no secret that they did go through a rocky period earlier this year so their focus has been on rebuilding their relationship, not wedding planning. But things are very much back on track between Paulina and Dustin so the wedding planning is back on now, too.”
