Congrats to Dustin Johnson for his season opening win at the weather shortened Tournament of Champions. He is now being labeled as the king of the 54 hole events as he has conquered 3 of them in his career. DJ played great, and outside of his tee shots at 9 and 13, he drove the ball like a machine. That’s how he won, period. He is giving plenty of credit to his new equipment, driver and irons specifically, but I think he won for two other mostly unmentioned reasons.
First, WAR PAINT. Yup, I said war paint. Have you seen this yet? I documented the arrival of the R1 here: https://shutfacegolf.com/2013/01/05/fugly-the-r1-has-arrived/ but the real cluster fuck is the ad campaign #Taylormadegolf is running with. Please watch.
Have you stopped laughing yet? I don’t get it, who thought this was a good idea? Sergio wearing the paint was the best part of that. I can’t stop laughing at him and the look on his face. GRRRRRRR…..they look like they’re going to a kid’s birthday party in tiger make up.
Second, Paulina Gretzky.
It appears as though DJ just didn’t have enough going for him. He’s rich, single, can dunk and hit a golf ball 400 fucking yards. Now he gets to bend the Great One’s daughter over a bar stool whenever he pleases. Here is the story if you haven’t seen it. http://golf.about.com/b/2013/01/09/new-face-in-dustin-johnsons-gallery-paulina-gretzky.htm
There you have it, 2013 has already been a big year for DJ. New sticks, new fuck toy, and back in the winner’s circle after one event. Is this the year he gets a major? The trend he is setting looks good, minus the war paint.
