No penalty here: Dustin Johnson and Natalie Gulbis are dating

Consider it the TaylorMade tango; LPGA star Natalie Gulbis confirmed on Saturday in Hawaii that she and PGA Tour star Dustin Johnson are an item.

Gulbis, who followed Johnson on the back nine at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, told that they are in fact dating, but said the questions about the two can go through the four-time PGA Tour winner.

"I’ll let Dustin handle our PR," Gulbis said with a smile.

While the official news is now on the table, rumors of the relationship have been circling around golf circles for months. The above picture, courtesy of Kristin Sunderhaft, was from the Wendy's 3-Tour Challenge back in November, and shows the two being very friendly.

Also, what better way to date someone who understands what you go through than someone in the same field? Gulbis, 28, might not be as dominant on the golf course on her tour as Johnson, 25, is on his, but they both compete and play and fret over 4-footers.

Now, officially, they can complain of slow play and fast greens together.

Speaking of this, what other golfing duos would you like to see start up a relationship? I don't hate the idea of Tiger Woods and Paula Creamer. It would be fun to see Anthony Kim get set up with Christina, and the bonus there is, nobody has to change their last name!
