Report: Wayne Gretzky to Dustin Johnson: Pick Paulina or partying

The Great One has apparently seen enough.

According to a Fox News report, Wayne Gretzky has told Dustin Johnson that he must make a choice: stop partying (and what behavior comes with it) or the wedding to Paulina Gretzky isn't going to happen.

The report claims the Gretzky family was aware of Johnson's extracurricular behavior and tried to offer support to Johnson in helping him reform his ways. Gretzky and Johnson have competed together on the PGA Tour, playing as a team in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky began dating in 2012 and announced their engagement in Aug. 2013. A wedding was originally scheduled for sometime in 2014, but a postponement was announced in the spring because of Johnson's golf schedule and commitments.

Golf World reports Johnson has been spending the first few days of his PGA Tour leave of absence at an Idaho resort, caddying for Paulina. Johnson reportedly also carded a 61 in a round at the resort.
