It was a great ‘1’ for the Great One.
Wayne Gretzky closed out 2020 with his first-ever hole-in-one, according to an Instagram post shared by his wife on Thursday.
Janet Jones Gretzky shared a handful of photos from the golf course with a caption announcing the feat and wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year.
“Congratulations Wayne on getting your 1st Hole in One !! Couldn’t of been a more beautiful day, and with such a great group of friends to be part of the celebration, what a way to wrap up 2020. Bring on 2021 we have been waiting for you, we wish everyone a Happy, loving and most of all Healthy New Year,” she wrote.
Perhaps the big-time golf skills are rubbing off on the family. Dustin Johnson, who is engaged to Gretzky’s daughter, Paulina, won the 2020 Masters with a record-setting 20-under par.
Gretzky, you may remember, celebrated by dressing up as Johnson’s caddie.
A few more aces and he may be ready to challenge his future son-in-law.
