Highlights from Miss Gretzky are as follows. For more, be sure to visit Golf Digest!

On her softball days:
"The truth is, I was a total tomboy and loved sports. Dad always says I was his best athlete. I played softball until the eighth grade, and that's when I said, 'Dad, stop. I'm a girl.'"

On her first golf experience:
"The first swing I took in my dad's tournament, I whiffed it in front of 30 people. It was probably the best thing that ever happened to me because I'm really competitive like my mom and dad, and it made me want to keep trying."

On her diet and exercise secrets:
"First of all, I was blessed with incredible genes. Look at my parents! But it's really 70 percent diet and 30 percent working out. It's all about fitting in some exercise wherever you are."

On Dustin:
"Dustin and I are very realistic about not letting diet and exercise consume our lives. We're very pro being healthy and being fit, but we're also very pro you have one life to live so have a fun life."
