AUGUSTA, Ga. — Dustin Johnson has grown accustomed to having fans gaze in awe.

On Thursday, those eyes happened to belong to Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce, among others.

After playing a round of golf at nearby Augusta Country Club on Wednesday, the Kansas City Chiefs stars were in attendance for Thursday’s opening round.

Mahomes, wearing a backward Augusta Country Club hat and yellow Adidas kicks, watched intently as Johnson teed off with Lee Westwood and amateur Tyler Strafaci.

“Let’s follow DJ,” Mahomes said as the defending Masters champion—and fellow Adidas client—walked down the first fairway. “I want to watch him.”

Mahomes had originally planned to attend the 2020 Masters last April before the pandemic postponed the event to November, which coincided with the NFL schedule.

Wayne Gretzky and his wife, Janet, were also in the gallery following Johnson.

Gretzky’s daughter, Paulina, is Johnson’s fiance. The couple have two sons together.

Two days before his wedding, Trevor Lawrence and fiancé Marissa Mowry spent Thursday afternoon at the Masters.

The former Clemson star and projected top pick in the upcoming NFL Draft called the his time at Augusta National, “A great way to begin the wedding festivities.”

Larry Fitzgerald, an 11-time NFL Pro Bowler and current free agent, was also at Augusta National on Thursday.
