Paulina Gretzky celebrates 31 in St. Barth's with Dustin Johnson and the usual suspects

It's been a pretty big week in golf-adjacent relationship news. First, former Golf Channel fixture Holly Sonders tied the knot with professional gambler Vegas Dave after a brief, but very Instagramable, fling. The move is still reverberating through the hearts of Morning Drive viewers across America, if Golf Digest's comment sections are any indication. The hitch-heard-round-the-golf-word was just the tip of the diamond ring, however, because less than 24 hours later, Dustin Johnson and former GD cover star Paulina Gretzky were off to St. Barth's to celebrate Gretzky's 31st birthday with their usual entourage of influencers and part-time champagne sommeliers. No ring was involved—you can stop breathing into that paper bag—but the crew still looks like they had a pretty good time.

The evening documentation wisely ends there, but we did get a glimpse of the breakfast spread the following morning, which we can't imagine too many revelers had the stomach for. You feel those drinks worse and worse every year, Paulina. Take it from us.

Needless to say, if this is how DJ and Paulina celebrate 31—arguably the most unexciting of all birthdays—we can't wait to see how they ring in Christmas. Something tells us it won't be with a trip to the in-laws in Edmonton though ...
