Paulina Gretzky CRACKS UP to Dustin Johnson meme as he savages LIV Golf critics

Dustin Johnson's wife Paulina Gretzky cracked up to a meme featuring her husband, Bryson DeChambeau and Phil Mickelson before his controversial switch to the LIV Golf League in the Netflix documentary Full Swing. 

Johnson was one of the first players to resign his PGA Tour membership before joining the breakaway tour last June. 

The 24-time PGA Tour winner and 2020 Masters champion is said to have commanded a signing-on fee in excess of $125m to join the rival circuit. 

At the time, Johnson and a number of LIV players were the subject of memes referencing their newfound riches. 

One spoof video in a hotel room showed a dancing Johnson, DeChambeau and Mickelson along with England's Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter

Poulter, in particular, defended his decision to join LIV in Full Swing. He even responded to the question: Don't you have enough money?

But back to the topic at hand and DJ's glamorous wife Paulina - daughter of ice hockey legend Wayne Gretzky - found this and other memes hilarious. 

"Oh my goodness," she said, covering her mouth and stifling laughs round the dinner table.

Johnson later explained his decision to join LIV in the episode titled American Dreams. 

It could be described that Johnson's explanation was brutal and to the point. 

He said: 

"You know, it finally came down to, you know, the offer that they made me. For me, it was playing less and making more money. 
"Pretty simple. If someone offered anyone a job doing the same thing they're already doing but less time at the office and they're gonna pay them more, pretty sure you're gonna take it. 
"And something's wrong with you if you didn't."

Paulina also offered her thoughts on DJ's decision, saying: 

"I don't think Dustin would ever make a bad choice for his children and people have to understand at the end of the day that's who he chose this for. 
"Of course, I get what everyone's saying, but my dad being a hockey player, I'm sure as a kid there were times when I'm like, 'Why does my dad have to play on my birthday?' 
"This is about Dustin and the kids and me and taking care of us and being there with us." 

It's clear in the episode that Johnson had no lingering doubts about his decision to join LIV. 

Asked if people doubt him, he replied: 

"I don't really care."
