Meet the glam Masters WAGs, from Dustin Johnson's singer fiancee Paulina Gretzky to Jon Rahm's Insta model wife Kelley

WITH endless stunning beach photoshoots on Instagram and luxury holidays via private jet, Paulina Gretzky is living the dream life.

And the popstar turned model was front and centre when her par-tner Dustin Johnson won the 2020 Masters this weekend – even breaking down in tears as she celebrated the incredible moment with him.

Johnson wowed the golfing world when he finished on 20 under par to break the 72-hole Masters scoring record jointly held by Tiger Woods and Jordan Spieth.

And the moment the victory became a reality, his loyal partner Paulina, 31, raced over to him and sealed his victory with a kiss.

But she's not the only super-glam wife or girlfriend supporting some of the world's top golf stars – with a former TV presenter, an ex pageant queen and a top pole vaulter joining her in the sidelines.

Here, we look at the super-glam golfing WAGs…

Dustin Johnson's pop star fiancée – Paulina Gretzky 

Paulina Gretzky is a successful model and former pop star, whose song Collecting Dust featured on MTV reality show Laguna Beach.

And she is already part of sporting royalty thanks to her Canadian ice hockey superstar dad, Wayne Gretzky.

She got engaged to Dustin Johnson in August 2013 after a seven-month romance, but things haven't always been plain sailing for the couple.

Dustin and Paulina reportedly hit a rocky patch in 2018 with the model deleting all trace of American number one Dustin, 36, from her Instagram account.

At the time, he was claimed to have grown close to California socialite Yassie Safai – but both of them denied rumours of an affair.

The golden golf couple – who have two young sons together – have seemingly got things back on track since.

Boasting stunning lingerie shots and seductive selfies, it's little wonder the model has over 820k followers on her Instagram account.

She's already a firm favourite with fans, having appeared on the cover of Golf Digest magazine in 2014.

Brooks Koepka's 'Sharknado' girlfriend – Jena Sims

Since he started dating Jena Sims in the summer of 2017, American Brooks Koepka, 30, has won two US Open titles and two PGA championships.

Jena is an actress, starring in comedy horror Attack Of The 50 Foot Cheerleader as well as in an episode of TV show Entourage.

The 31-year-old model – who also appears in Sharknado 5: The Swarming – is also the founder of non-profit organisation Pageant For Hope, which holds beauty pageants for kids battling cancer.

Jena is a former pageant winner herself, bagging the Miss Georgia Junior National Teenager title and the Miss Georgia Teen USA title in 2007.

TV presenter wife of Paul Casey – Pollyanna Woodward

Brit Paul Casey, 43, is a firm favourite in the world of golfing, and his glamorous wife Pollyanna Woodward, 38, has always been his number one supporter.

The pair have sport to thank for their romance, having met at a ball which was part of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix in 2011. They got married four years later and have two kids together.

Pollyanna is famous in her own right – most known for presenting Channel 5's The Gadget Show.

She competed in 2002 talent show Popstars: The Rivals, making it to the final 13 women and sharing a room with one of the eventual winners – Sarah Harding.

The model – who was once a finalist for Miss England – regularly uses Instagram to update her followers on her family life and has racked up 99k followers on Twitter too.

Rickie Fowler's pole-vaulting fiancée – Allison Stokke

American pro Rickie Fowler, 31, announced his engagement to Allison Stokke in June 2018 after proposing on a beach, with the pair marrying last October.

Allison, also 31, is a former pole vaulter who achieved her lifetime best of 4.36 metres in 2012, and she's gone on to model for fashion brands like Nike and Uniqlo.

Her pole vaulting prowess came in handy during a collaboration with GoPro, where she shot videos of herself from all angles while jumping.

She boasts over 500k followers on Instagram, where she's even posted pictures of herself giving golf a go.

Jon Rahm's Insta model wife – Kelley Cahill

A couple since college, Spanish golfer Jon Rahm, 26, and his American wife Kelley Cahill lived together for two years before becoming an item.

In 2018 they took their relationship to the next level, with Jon proposing to Kelley, 25, with a custom-designed diamond ring.

They tied the knot in December last year in the Spanish city of Bilbao.

Like her other half, Kelley is also sporty, competing in the javelin in the past and a keen tennis player.

Tiger Woods' 'saviour' girlfriend – Erica Herman

It's no secret Tiger Woods' love life has been a roller coaster – he split with his Swedish model wife Elin Nordegren in 2010 after his numerous affairs were made public.

Tiger, 44, has been dating Erica Herman, 35, since November 2017, and she is regularly spotted supporting her boyfriend at tournaments.

It's believed the pair first met ten years earlier at Tiger's pop-up restaurant The Woods Jupiter, where Erica worked as a manager.

She was once dubbed a 'gold digger' by sources, but has since been credited with saving Woods' life.

Sergio Garcia's golf-mad wife – Angela Akins

Sergio Garcia may have had to withdraw from the 2020 Masters after testing positive for coronavirus, but he remains a favourite in the golfing world.

Sports reporter Angela Akins, 35, could give her husband Sergio Garcia a run for his money on the golfing green as she plays with a handicap of three.

The Golf Channel presenter was previously married to another golfer, Ross Hamann, before getting engaged to Sergio in January 2017.

The pair married in Texas later the same year. They have a daughter together named Azalea – a nod to his Augusta win – and welcomed a son in April this year.

Rory McIlroy's low-key wife – Erica Stoll

When Irish golfer Rory McIlroy, 31, married American Erica Stoll in April 2017, no expense was spared.

The celebration was held at Ashford Castle in Ireland and guests included Stevie Wonder, Coldplay's Chris Martin and One Direction star Niall Horan.

The pair actually met back in 2012 when Erica worked for the PGA. In fact it was Erica who helped Rory make it for his tee time at the 2012 Ryder Cup (thanks to a lift in a police car) when he famously got the time wrong.

Rory told Cool FM radio: "We were friends for a couple of years and we knew each other sort of from the golf circuit, and in summer 2014, towards the end of the summer, started to spend a bit more time together and it went from there."

Despite her high-profile husband, Erica is said to enjoy a quiet, low-key life and gave birth to their daughter Poppy in August.

Justin Rose's gymnast wife – Kate Phillips

Former gymnast Kate Phillips and Justin Rose, 40, began dating in 2000, and have two children together.

They married in 2006, and have one of the longest marriages in the sport, celebrating two decades together and 14 years as husband and wife.

Justin's golf balls even pay tribute to his wife. Her lucky number is nine so they are emblazoned with 99, apparently for double luck.

The couple set up their own charity together, the Kate and Justin Rose Foundation, which aims to fight childhood hunger.

During their time together, Rose has secured ten PGA Tour wins and 11 European Tour triumphs, as well as his Major win in 2013.
