Undeterred by the backlash — which arguably was unnecessary and overreaching — Golf Digest now has unveiled a behind the scenes video documenting the shoot for the cover and the accompanying photos included in the issue featuring Gretzky doing various golf-related stretches and whatnot.

And the inside look at the shoot:

Her interview with the magazine can be read in its entirety here, but below is an amusing excerpt regarding the relative sexiness of golfers and how Gretzky perceives Dustin Johnson as a sexy golfer:

Can golfers look sexy?
Dustin can.

What makes a golfer look sexy?
With Dustin, it’s his pants. It’s all about the fit. I like that he doesn’t wear things that say Look at me; look at me. He wears what makes him feel comfortable, and it shows.

There you have it. Sadly, after turning heads on the first couple of days of the Masters last week, Gretzky was nowhere to be seen on the grounds of Augusta National, as Johnson surprisingly missed the cut, giving the couple plenty of time to enjoy the company of one another.

Come to think of it, maybe Paulina can give Dustin some tips on how to improve his performance…

On the golf course! Come on, people, get your minds out of the gutter.
