Dustin Johnson Wins U.S. Open: Internet Reacts to Paulina Gretzky (Tweets + Videos)
Dustin Johnson shot a 69 in his final round at Oakmont Country Club, coming from four strokes back to win the 2016 U.S. Open. It was a pretty great ending to the 116th edition of the tournament, partly because it saw Johnson earn some redemption after his heartbreaking loss on the final hole of last year’s U.S. Open, and also because it gave us plenty of Paulina Gretzky.
Johnson entered the final round in a tie for second at 3-under par, and he held it together on Sunday, shooting a 69 (after a one-stroke penalty) to finish 4-under for the tournament—good enough for a three-shot victory.
Here’s a look at DJ’s final putt on the 18th green to wrap up his first major championship:

Now let’s address the other scandal…Paulina Gretzky’s dress. I mean shirt. I mean dress. I’ll decide later.

When DJ used to come close we’d say “well at least he gets to go home with Paulina Gretzky.”

Marrying Paulina Gretzky should still be considered his first major win. #USOpen

Fox, just then: “Excuse me, Jack. Mr. Nicklaus? Can you move to the side we’re trying to get a shot of Paulina Gretzky for the viewers.”

Being married to Paulina Gretzky should nullify any USGA penalty.
