Ex-Masters champ Dustin Johnson and Paulina Gretzky sell £12m Florida mansion

Dustin Johnson lost his Masters crown at the weekend, but the American golf star and partner Paulina Gretzky did reportedly pocket £12m through the sale of their Florida mansion.

Johnson won at Augusta in November but did not make the cut this weekend with Hideki Matsuyama going on to pick up the famous Green Jacket.

Johnson had paid £3.65m for a seven-bedroom mansion back in 2015 with plenty of golfers living in Florida.

Johnson and Gretzky, daughter of legendary hockey star Wayne Gretzky, renovated the luxurious property over the years.

Insider report that the couple have now sold the property to an unnamed buyer, with the £12m purchase completed in the build-up to the Masters.

The lucky new buyer will have eight bathrooms in the mansion, as a well as a private island, connected via a boardwalk across a short stretch of water,

There is a boat ramp too and a saltwater pool that reaches ten-feet deep for any aspiring swimmer.

The master bedroom includes a balcony which overlooks said pool and island, while there is also a two-bedroom guest house.

Johnson isn’t being left homeless following the sale, also owning a mansion on North Palm Beach.

Gretzky and Johnson have two children together with Gretzky previously saying: “At the end of 2011, my mom played with Dustin in the Wednesday pro-am at Tiger's tournament at Sherwood.

“She told Dustin about her daughter, blah-blah-blah, and invited him to the house that night.
