Transcript

00:00
So Dustin Johnson is the new world number one in golf
00:02
following a dominant five shot win at Riviera.
00:05
That's right.
00:06
This boat dancing, 360 degree dunking,
00:09
music video making,
00:11
whatever exercise this is doing,
00:13
athletic marvel,
00:14
is the 20th male to hold the top spot.
00:17
And we're not expecting him to be a one week wonder either.
00:20
Sorry, Tom Lehman.
00:21
Last year, when Johnson was asked about
00:23
how he'd handled the stress of being number one,
00:25
he responded, I'll let you know when I get there.
00:28
Good call DJ.
00:29
Of course, DJ's stress level is about to go way up,
00:33
but it has nothing to do with golf.
00:34
Johnson's more carefree on the golf course
00:36
than most people are lounging on a beach.
00:39
But his fiance, Paulina Gretzky, announced
00:41
the day before DJ's latest win,
00:42
the couple is expecting it's second child.
00:44
And it seems much more likely that baby number two
00:47
will keep him up at night
00:49
more than that number one ranking.
00:51
After all, when DJ was asked about
00:52
the Official World Golf Ranking following his victory,
00:55
he said, I don't really understand it,
00:57
but I can read one, two, three.
00:59
Again, good call DJ.
01:02
Considering it's a confusing system for those
01:03
with advanced degrees in mathematics,
01:05
the best way to think about the OWGR,
01:08
is not to think about it too much.
01:10
Back to Paulina.
01:11
Her announcement actually caught us a bit by surprise
01:14
following a Valentine's Day
01:15
in which the PDA prone couple
01:17
didn't even send an Instagram to each other.
01:19
Instead, she also announced the addition
01:22
of a puppy to the family.
01:24
Just a little different than the photos
01:26
she posted last year.
01:27
In any event, DJ is number one.
01:30
And Paulina is expecting baby number two.
01:33
Not a bad week in the Hollywood area
01:34
for golf's most glamorous couple.
