Why is Paulina Gretzky on the cover of Golf Digest?

Paulina Gretzky is famous for the following: 1) Being Wayne Gretzky’s daughter 2) Dating Dustin Johnson 3) Posting bikini pics on Instagram. So, naturally, that led to her gracing the cover of Golf Digest because WHAT?

Listen, I’m all for scantily clad women on magazine covers but this kinda doesn’t make sense. Wait, nevermind, this is for Golf Digest’s fitness issue.

Nonetheless, 25-year-old Paulina, daughter of hockey great Wayne, fiancee of PGA Tour star Dustin Johnson, is a certified celebrity within the golf world, as much a subject of fascination at tournaments as the guy she’s there watching. Now factor in that she’s an attractive, fit woman who — like many of our prospective readers — is fairly new to golf, and she seemed a natural cover subject for our second annual issue devoted to fitness.

Disregard my faux outrage everyone. As a mea culpa, here’s Paulina swinging a golf club because sports.
