Dustin Johnson celebrated his Ryder Cup triumph with a big smooch from fiancée Paulina Gretzky on Sunday as the U.S. captured the title for the first time since 2016.
Johnson and Gretzky were seen embracing after Johnson’s day was done. One of the top U.S. golfers finished his Sunday singles matchup against Europe’s Paul Casey one up. With the win, Johnson entered a very exclusive Ryder Cup club with his dominant performance.
Johnson finished undefeated (5-0-0) over the course of the tournament. He won 3 and 2 and 2 and 1 in the foursomes and four-ball, respectively, Friday. On Saturday, he won 2 and 1 and 4 and 3 in the same events before finishing Sunday with the victory over Casey.
He joined Larry Nelson, Arnold Palmer, Gardner Dickinson and Francisco Molinari to go 5-for-5 during the Ryder Cup. His victory over Casey gave the U.S. team 17.5 points.
The U.S. was the first team to reach the 14.5-point threshold needed to claim the trophy. Collin Morikawa clinched the half-point the team needed to win.
The Americans came out of the gate strong on Friday, picking up six points and then another five on Saturday. The team came into Sunday with one of the largest leads in recent memory.
Scottie Scheffler and Bryson DeChambeau had wins before Morikawa’s clinching hole.
