Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky, who would've thought?
Not that the 12th-ranked golfer in the world and the socialite daughter of the greatest hockey player ever are dating. Maybe they are, maybe they aren't. But if the rumors about the two being romantically involved are true, the mere fact they are a couple wouldn't be the shocking part.
But the notion Johnson somehow managed to win the PGA Tournament of Champions on Tuesday despite the presence of his supposed sweetheart throughout the event ... well, that simply goes against everything we thought we knew about athletes and their sudden celebrity romances.
Tony Romo and Jessica Simpson? Matt Kemp and Rihanna? Mark Sanchez and Kate Upton? It's so easy to label a newfound love, particularly with someone beautiful and famous, as a "distraction."
