Paulina Gretzky watches on with Dustin Johnson in Masters contention

Dustin Johnson’s stunning fiancee was in attendance to watch the former world No. 1’s quest for his first green jacket.

The 36-year-old only managed nine holes before darkness set due to the delayed tee off times following the morning storm in Augusta, Georgia. But Johnson was off early on Friday morning to finish his first round and sitting at 4-under through 12 holes, three shots off the lead.

Cheering him on in a low-cut top in the background on Thursday was model Paulina Gretzky.

Brit’s Paul Casey sits at the top of the pile with a hugely impressive 7-under round.

Gretzky, 31, is often a regular on the course when DJ is teeing off and has heads turning when fans are in attendance, which is not the case this week.

Johnson met Gretzky in 2009, but they didn’t start dating until 2013. Seven months later the pair got engaged and have two sons together — 5-year-old Tatum and 3-year-old River.

She comes from sporting royalty and is the daughter of legendary Canadian hockey player Wayne Gretzky.

Johnson, who won the US Open in 2016, revealed in September how his other half plays a huge part in his success.

“She’s a huge part of me, our family and my success,” Johnson said. “She’s home with the kids, and has been great with that, and just has been a huge supporter for me, with everything I need to do. She understands everything it takes to get to where you want to be and the sacrifices you have to make.

“Having her dad as the greatest hockey player, she understands. You couldn’t ask for a better partner.”
