LOS ANGELES — It sounds like Wayne Gretzky had some stern words with his future son-in-law, Dustin Johnson, long before revelations of Johnson’s hard-partying ways hit the press.
“Dustin isn’t a household name yet the way Tiger Woods or Alex Rodriguez are, so companies will likely sit it out and see how he performs when he’s back on the course,” noted leading sports philanthropy attorney Andrew Morton.
Reps for Johnson and the PGA Tour did not respond to requests for further comment.
Paulina has also been subjected to press criticism throughout the relationship, being called a “distraction” to Johnson’s game.
