DJ told the media that Gretzky had some kind words for him after snagging his first major title at the U.S. Open.

“He was very happy and very proud. Coming from him it was pretty cool. He was telling me how it was one of the greatest things he’s seen watching that, how it all unfolded and everything, and to see me get it done, so coming from him, I thought that was really cool. It meant a lot, because he’s seen a lot of good things.”

Doesn’t get any better than that. Getting praised by none other than The Great One and future father-in-law.
