Dustin Johnson celebrates £11.2m FedEx Cup win with stunning fiancee Paulina who steals limelight in skintight dress

DUSTIN JOHNSON scooped a mega £11.2MILLION for winning the FedEx Cup – then got outstaged by stunning fiancee Paulina.

The world No1 picked up the biggest cheque in golf for winning the Tour Championship and FedEx Cup, even though he did not shoot the lowest score.

Johnson started the tournament in Georgia, US, two ahead on ten under par as a reward for leading the season-long points race going into the event.

His fellow American Xander Schauffele – who started on three under – actually shot the lowest score for four rounds but finished tied second with Justin Thomas on 18 under – three behind DJ.

Not that Johnson, 36, cared one bit as he was joined by glamorous Paulina – the daughter of ice hockey legend Wayne Gretzky – to collect the award.

Mum-of-two Paulina, 31, stole the show in a skintight baby blue dress as the loved up couple celebrated on East Lake’s 18th green.

And the pair – who got engaged in 2013 – looked to have firmly put in the past rumours their relationship was on the rocks after Dustin reportedly struck up a friendship with California socialite Yassie Safai.

Johnson has made a whopping £51.8m on the course in 12 years as a pro – and that figure does not include last night’s bumper pay cheque.

The FedEx Cup prize money does not officially count on the PGA Tour money list.

But something that will mean even more to Johnson is the chance to grab a second US Open title at Winged Foot next week.

He heads into the season’s second Major – rearranged from June – as the hottest player in the world.

Johnson held the 54-hole lead in the USPGA before finishing second then shot 30 under par to win the first play-off event by 11 shots.

Only a crazy 66ft birdie putt by Jon Rahm on the first play-off hole stopped him claiming the BMW Championship the next week too.

Johnson said: “I’m definitely playing the best I’ve ever played. I feel everything is dialled in pretty well.

“I’ve got a lot of confidence in every part of my game right now. I’ve got a couple of days off and then got to get ready for the US Open.”
