Dustin Johnson pocketed over $US2 million in prize money for winning his first Masters title on Sunday, and he’s wasting no time in splashing the cash to celebrate.
Just a day after his record-breaking victory at Augusta National, the American â€” alongside his fiancÃ©e, Paulina Gretzky, and a group of friends â€” took a private jet to the Caribbean island of Saint BarthÃ©lemy, where they set up shop in luxury villa by the sea.
Kristina Melnichenko, who is on the trip with Johnson, shared snaps of the vacation on her Instagram account, which showed the group taking shots and playing giant Jenga.
Melnichenko also posted a picture of the NHL legend Wayne Gretzky â€” Paulina’s father â€” wearing one of the famed white boilersuits caddies at the Masters wear during the tournament.
Johnson set a Masters record during the weekend by finishing the tournament an astonishing 20 strokes under par as he claimed his first green jacket.
Afterward, he gave an emotional victory speech in which he was unable to hold back his tears.
“This is just a dream come true, as a kid, I always dreamed about being a Masters champion,” he said. “It’s hard to talk. It’s just incredible, as you can tell. Sorry.
“I’ve never had this much trouble trying to gather myself. On the golf course, I’m pretty good, but out here I’m not. I have a great team who â€” Jesus, I can’t even talk!”
