(Kansas City, MO) - Kansas City Chiefs tight end and Super Bowl champion Travis Kelce spent his Father's Day enjoying a round of golf with some fellow pro athletes. Kelce joined hockey legend Wayne Gretzky, his daughter Paulina Gretzky, and Paulina's husband, pro golfer Dustin Johnson, at the Troubadour Golf and Field Club in Nashville on Sunday.

According to photos and videos posted on social media by Paulina Gretzky, the group seemed to have a fun day out on the course. In one photo shared to Paulina's Instagram, Kelce stands smiling between Gretzky and his daughter. Wayne Gretzky opted to play barefoot, flashing a big grin alongside the Chiefs star.

It seems Kelce's round also included a surprise meeting with some young fans. Caitlin Rink, who works at Troubadour Club, posted that Kelce stood with a group of excited "tweenage Swifties," referring to Taylor Swift fans. One mother commented that Kelce was "so sweet" to the girls.


"That feeling when you made your tweenage Swiftie daughters’ dreams come true," Rink wrote in her caption.


Kelce's girlfriend, pop superstar Taylor Swift, was unable to join in on the golf fun as she is currently touring across Europeon the Eras Tour. Despite conflicting schedules, Swift supported Kelce and the team during their Super Bowl ring ceremony last week. Chiefs owner Clark Hunt confirmed Swift is "definitely" a fan after her social media support, including comments like "joining the party from Liverpool" and congratulating a contract extension.



It's clear Kelce enjoyed spending time with his famous friends on the course for Father's Day. With his championship pedigree and warm personality, it's no surprise Kelce can attract top athletes like Gretzky and Johnson to the links. Kelce will now rejoin his teammates in Kansas City to prepare to defend their AFC West title next season.


How did Taylor Swift show her support for Travis Kelce during his golf outing


Eagle-eyed viewers believe they saw Taylor Swift cheering on Travis Kelce in footage from a charity golf tournament. At the associated gala, Kelce auctioned off tickets to Swift's concert tour while referring to her as his partner as she waved from the crowd.


After the golf fundraiser wrapped, Kelce partied in Las Vegas but Swift stayed behind to prep for her European tour dates. Fans speculate two songs from her new album "The Tortured Poets Department" were inspired by dating Kelce, who first connected with Swift at one of her concerts. The lyrics to "The Alchemy" and "So High School" reference a relationship that mirrors Swift and Kelce's timeline according to followers decoding her music.

Though touring conflicts prevented Swift from joining Kelce's Father's Day golf outing, it appears she's shown allegiance to the Chiefs receiver through attending his charity events. Listeners continue to analyze clues about the famous pair in Swift's latest release.
