They don’t call him “The Great One” for nothin’ — Wayne Gretzky managed to end the year on a high note … by smacking a hole-in-one on New Year’s Eve.
The hockey legend had more reason to celebrate the end of 2020 than everyone else, because he hit his first ace on the golf course … on the signature par-3 6th hole at the Sherwood Country Club in Thousand Oaks, CA.
Gretzky hit a 9-iron on the 140-yard hole, and though COVID restrictions kept onlookers away from his big moment … word traveled pretty fast.
We’re told the world’s #1 golfer, Dustin Johnson, called him from Hawaii afterward to congratulate him. Johnson, of course, is engaged to Wayne’s daughter, Paulina.
So, there ya go … the man who holds the NHL records for goals, assists, points and hat tricks — along with countless other records — is also as good at golf as his future son-in-law.
