Dustin Johnson surprises couple at Rocket Mortgage Classic with gender reveal

June 26, 2019

Dustin Johnson is the top-ranked player and betting favorite for this week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic. But before the tournament even started, he was tasked with a different job — he had important news to deliver.

In a video tweeted by the PGA Tour, Johnson surprised one happy couple with the gender reveal of their baby. The 20-time Tour winner walked over to sign autographs when he was asked to be in a photo with a man and his wife. He agreed, then responded with something that caught them off guard.

“So I hear ya’ll are having a baby?” Johnson asked.
“Oh wow. Yes we are. You heard about this?”
“Do you want to know if it’s a boy or a girl?”
“Yeah.”
“You do?”
“Yeah.”
“Well,” Johnson said, reaching into his pocket before pulling out a pink golf ball. “It’s a girl.”

He then told the ecstatic couple congratulations and posed for a photo. They asked how he knew and he said, “I’ve got people that find stuff out.”

“I was like, ‘How do you know?'” the woman said afterward. “I thought, ‘Have you confused us with someone else. How did you know?'”

The couple said the ball Johnson gave them is going in the baby’s room. You can check out the entire video below.

Johnson tees off for his opening around at Detroit Golf Club at 1:05 p.m. ET on Thursday alongside Patrick Reed and Chez Reavie.
