well this is awkward...

Last week, former PGA Tour star-turned-LIV golfer Dustin Johnson was asked an uncomfortable question about his wife at a tournament press conference.

Johnson, who married Paulina Gretzky earlier this year, was asked a strangely hypothetical question.

"If you've been stranded on an island for the rest of your life,

If you had a choice, would you choose to take your own fishing pole or a Paulina?"

The reporter asked.

Johnson awkwardly avoided the question.

"I can't answer that question," Johnson replied.

Dustin and Paulina have been together for many years, although they only got married last year.

Paulina is the daughter of NHL legend Wayne Gretzky.

Paulina Gretzky parties with her husband before a LIV golf event.

Golf fans took to social media to react to the awkward press conference.

"Who says journalism is dead?" One fan wrote.

"What a fool.

Dude your wife is always the answer to this question," wrote another fan.

Paulina has been supportive of Dustin throughout her career, including her move to LIV golf.

Maybe Dustin will go with his wife only if she asks the same question again.
