The couple made their relationship public in January when Johnson, 29, played in the Tournament of Champions in Kapalua, Hawaii, according to the New York Daily News. Johnson won the tournament, earning $1.1 million. 

Wayne Gretzky and his wife, Janet, joined their daughter the following week in Honolulu at the Sony Open. Johnson and Wayne Gretzky were partners in the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Paulina Gretzky, 24, had dated Los Angeles Kings player Jarrett Stoll before dating Johnson. Johnson dated LPGA golfer Natalie Gulbis before his current relationship, according to the Daily News.

Paulina Gretzky is a model and pop singer. She made her modeling debut on the August 2005 cover of Flare. Paulina and Janet Gretzky appeared in the movie "Alpha Dog."

Her song "Collecting Dust" was featured on MTV's reality series "Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County.”

Johnson, who attended Coastal Carolina University, is ranked No. 22 in the Official World Golf Rankings. Johnson has made $19.5 million on the tour since he went professional in 2007.

He has seven PGA Tour wins and has had five top 10 finishes in 18 tournaments in 2013.

Wayne Gretzky is considered one of the greatest professional hockey players of all time, retiring from the NHL in 1999 as the league's all-time scoring leader during the regular season and playoffs in goals, assists and points. He led the NHL in scoring a record 10 times and was named the league's MVP a record nine times.

He is the only NHL player ever to score 200 points in a season, doing it four times in a five-year span in his career.
