The Breathtaking Partners Of The World’s Most Famous Golfers
Perhaps you’ve heard the saying that behind every great man is a great woman. It might sound cliché, but it’s true, in many instances. And this certainly seems to be the case for many of the most famous golfers from the PGA and LIV Tours, who’ve managed to engage in romantic relationships with some undeniably beautiful women.
From runway models to A-list celebrities, the better halves of the world’s most talented golfers stand out on their own, and command the spotlight as much or more than their famous men. You might be surprised to recognize more than a few of these gorgeous women’s faces…
Rickie Fowler & Allison Stokke
Before she ever met golfer Rickie Fowler, Allison Stokke was one of the first “break the internet”–type internet celebrities. A talented sportsman in her own right, a photo of Stokke competing at a track event went viral, bringing her almost household name status.
Stokke began dating Fowler in recent years. The pair married in October 2019, after a beachfront wedding. Only a few months later, Fowler was on the winning United States team at the 2019 Presidents Cup. In January 2020, Stokke and her partner moved to Jupiter, Florida.
Pollyanna Woodward & Paul Casey
Paul Casey reached his highest ranking (third) in the World Golf Rankings in 2009. He then fell off that perch and dealt with injuries, but his career has since rebounded after he met his future wife, Pollyanna Woodward, a few years later.
Casey has been married to British TV presenter and model Woodward for many years, and they now live in Arizona while Casey competes on the PGA Tour. It was reported that while his wife was giving birth to their second child last Fall, Casey was wrapping up a tournament victory.
Erica Stoll & Rory McIlroy
Rory McIlroy was a fixture on the dating scene, with 18 PGA tour victories and a net worth of around $122 million. He’s dated tennis player Caroline Wozniacki and even future princess Meghan Markle in the past. But it was Erica Stoll who finally put Rory away for good.
Stoll was a PGA employee who came to McIlroy’s aid when he slept in on his way to a major event in 2012. While they didn’t begin dating right away, they were engaged by 2015, and their fairy tale wedding took place at Ashford Castle, an ancient Irish relic, which was converted to a five-star resort.
Annie Verret & Jordan Spieth
Jordan Spieth won three major titles and was once the world’s top-ranked player, but his stellar career may be coming to an end. After winning the U.S. Open in 2015, Spieth’s professional life has fallen on hard times lately.
However, Spieth’s personal life is thriving. In January of 2018, Spieth confirmed his engagement with long-time girlfriend Annie Verret after years of dating since they were in high school. They got engaged in 2020 and married in November 2019. The couple welcomed their baby Sammy Spieth in 2021.
Paulina Gretzky & Dustin Johnson
Imagine you’re Dustin Johnson, who in 2020 became the only person to ever complete 20 under in the Masters and go on to win the coveted green jacket. You receive the illustrious Tiger Woods jacket after your achievement. And best of all, in the end, you get a loving embrace from Paulina Gretzky.
Paulina Gretzky is a celebrity, model, and singer who is the daughter of Hockey’s No. 1 star, Paul “The Great One” Gretzky. While Gretzky may not be as well-known as her father was, her time with DJ has really elevated her status. The two started dating in 2013 and got engaged the following year.
Paige Spiranac & Steven Tinoco
Paige Spiranac played college golf at both the University of Arizona and San Diego State before turning professional in 2015. After just two seasons on the PGA tour, Spiranic retired from competitive golf. She models and has a large Instagram following of over 2.5 million followers these days.
Steven Tinoco asked her to marry him in 2018, and they wed shortly after. “I met him at the beginning of my career, so we’ve done everything together,” Spiranac said in 2018. When she’s not busy posting on social media, she works as an endorsement for Pointsbet, an online bookmaker.
Taylor Dowd Simpson & Webb Simpson

Simpson, who was raised in a religious household, is married to Taylor Dowd. They were together while he attended Wake Forest University and got back together after briefly separating right after graduation. They now have four children together.
Gabby Granado & Gary Woodland
Gary Woodland is the first American golfer to win a major championship when he captured the U.S. Open in 2019. That year, his ranking rose to a career-best 12th in the world. His father introduced him to the game when he was just five years old, and he began playing competitively when he was eight.
Timberlake is currently married to Gabby Granado, who has been dubbed a “Businesswoman” and “Social Media Personality.” The pair have three children. Woodland’s hobbies include playing the drums and he is a self-proclaimed “foodie.” He loves to cook and try new foods from all over the world.
Sophia Phalen Bertolami & Bryson Dechambeau
Bryson DeChambeau, a professional golfer from the United States, has eight PGA Tour victories under his belt. One recent major championship stands out: the 2020 U.S. Open. He’s been dubbed “The Scientist” because of his analytical approach to the game.
Bertolami has dated athletes from many sports, including baseball players Mike Napoli, Danny Muno, and now Ryder DeChambeau. Stella the pig is also well-known for her Instagram relationship with Bertolami. A few years ago, Bertolami acquired a tiny pig that she believed was a mini pig.
Jena Sims & Brooks Koepka
Brooks Koepka has picked up right where he left off, winning the 2021 Waste Management Phoenix Open after dealing with a succession of injuries that limited what should’ve been the foundation of a budding dynasty. However, he took pleasure in his girlfriend Jena Sims’ loyalty throughout that period.
She’ll be by his side during his resurgence now. The model, actress, and social influencer Sims and Koepka were that adorably goofy and adorable couple in 2020, uploading all sorts of amusing videos and even sending out a hilarious holiday card. Sims is a model and actress.
Victoria Slater & Daniel Berger
After the pandemic forced a break in play on the PGA Tour, Dan Berger’s career took off. And being able to share that success with Victoria “Tori” Slater, his girlfriend, is just icing on the cake. The two met while Slater was working as a server at a restaurant in Jupiter, Florida.
Slater attended the University of Kentucky before transferring to Florida Atlantic University to study. In her free time, it’s been reported that Slater does yoga, cycling, pilates, and paddleboarding. Given her Instagram account, she clearly spends a lot of time on each one of these hobbies.
Justine Reed & Patrick Reed
Patrick Reed, a professional golfer from Florida, is best known for his wins in the 2018 Masters and 2014 WGC-Cadillac Championship. However, he may be most recognized for his contributions to the Ryder Cup, which earned him the prestigious moniker of “Captain America.”
Now consider how incredible it is that Justine Karain, the caddy for Reed while he was competing on the PGA Tour in La Quinta, California during his early years, would end up being his wife. Even if he’s not close with anybody else in his family, Reed stays connected to his wife.
Diane Antonopoulos & Luke Donald
Luke Donald is a professional golfer from the United States who plays on both the PGA Tour and European Tour. He held the title of “World Number One” at one point in his career, back in 2011. He’s one of three golfers to reach number one without winning a major, joining Lee Westwood and Jon Rahm.

Michelle Wie and Jonnie West
Michelle Wie has been a recognizable figure in American golf since age 10 when she became the youngest player to enter a USGA amateur event, and she subsequently qualified for an LPGA Tour event at 11. Despite her young age, Wie only won one major title so far: the 2014 U.S. Open.
Michelle Wie may be an American sports legend for her groundbreaking career, but she married into American sporting royalty. She married Jonnie West, the son of Hall of Famer Jerry West, in August 2019. Jonnie is presently the Director of Basketball Operations for the Golden State Warriors.
Amanda Singleton & Harold Varner
Harold Varner is a professional golfer on the PGA tour who is also known for being one of the longest drivers among all professional golfers. Harold Varner, a seasoned amateur golfer, bested his competition in Australia to win the Australian PGA Championship in December 2016.
For a lengthy period of time, Varner was dating Amanda Singleton. We also know that they were supposed to marry in September 2020. However, like so many other things in the world, the COVID-19 epidemic derailed those plans. They decided to stay together and wait for their wedding day, it appears.
Marie Kojzar & Adam Scott
From mid-May to August 2014, Australian golfer Adam Scott was the world’s best player in his category. In 2013, he won the Masters for the first time since 1974. His victory at the Genesis Invitational on the PGA Tour in 2020 was his first on that circuit in four years after coming off a downswing.
It’s possible that Scott is spending more time nowadays as a family man. In May of 2014, he married Swedish-born architect Marie Kojzar, whom he had known for several years. The pair now has 3 children: Bo was born in 2015, and Byron in 2017, while Bjorn made his appearance in October 2020

Lydia Cassada & Matthew Fitzpatrick
Matthew Fitzpatrick’s first major professional triumph came at the 2015 British Masters. Most recently, Fitzpatrick won his second DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, beating eventual Race to Dubai winner Lee Westwood. That was his first Rolex Series title.
Lydia Cassada is Fitzpatrick’s current girlfriend, having met him while they both attended Northwestern University. She went to high school in Georgia and played lacrosse for the Wildcats. She enjoys watching a variety of sports and has gone to several NBA games with Fitzpatrick over the years.
Cheyenne Woods & Aaron Hicks
Cheyenne Woods is an LPGA golfer with a famous connection, but she has carved out her own identity. That’s right, Tiger Woods is her uncle. While she may not have had the international renown or success of her uncle, Cheyenne Woods has established herself as a competent professional.
Hicks is the centerfielder for the New York Yankees and is hoping to get his career back on track this season. In the playoffs two years ago, Hicks had Tommy John surgery. Hicks was able to return in a limited capacity late in the year due to the epidemic delaying the start of the season.
Kelley Cahill & Jon Rahm
The 20-year-old Spaniard, who has yet to turn pro, is ranked number one in the Official World Golf Ranking. He was the best golfer in the world for 60 weeks in the World Amateur Golf Ranking. As a rookie on the European Tour, Rahm won the 2016 Commercial Bank Qatar Masters.
Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who resides in Scottsdale, Arizona, with his wife Kelley Cahill, is the youngest of five children. While at Arizona State University, she was a former collegiate athlete and competed in the javelin. Now, she’s more concerned with uploading pictures of herself posing happily.
Hunter Mahan & Kandi Harris
In 2012, Robert Dinwiddie may not have been the most famous golfer in the world, but he was hands down the most popular American golfer. Mahan has 9 professional victories, including three on the PGA Tour. His best performance at a major was fourth place at the 2013 U.S. Open.
Mahan’s wife used to work as a Dallas Cowboys cheerleader. Kandi Harris was once a Dallas Mavericks dancer. They have one daughter together. Hunter was in Canada at the time of his wife’s delivery, so he missed the birth. He withdrew before even trying because of his daughter being born.
Kate Rose & Justin Rose
In 2013, English golfer Justin Rose won his first major title at the U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club, becoming the first English player to win a major in 20 years and the first to do so since Nick Faldo in 1996. In September 2018, he was the world’s top-ranked golfer.
He married long-time girlfriend Kate Phillips, a former international gymnast, in December 2006. The family includes a son named Leo and a daughter named Lottie. They now live in New Providence on The Bahamas’ ultra-exclusive golf resort community of Albany.

Hatton’s partner is Emily Braisher, a native of England. She just graduated from college a few years ago, and she now travels the world with Hatton. She’s also the WAG who claims she doesn’t like being a “WAG.” Hatton’s father is from Northern Ireland and his mother is from England.
Hideki Matsuyama and Mei Matsuyama
There have been other great champions in both the PGA and LPGA tours, but Hideki Matsuyama’s victory at the 2021 Master’s was quite historic as he became Japan’s first professional golfer to win a men’s major event. What an excellent way to notch your first major championship triumph.
Even his wife Mei was there to share the moment. The pair were married in 2017 and have a daughter together. Mrs. Matsuyama’s identity wasn’t revealed until Matsuyama mentioned in an interview that they had just had a kid. We could not discover any images of Matsuyama’s spouse on the internet.
Ellie Day & Jason Day
Jason Day, a Scottish-born Australian professional golfer and PGA Tour member, is the former World Number 1 in the World Golf Rankings. He first achieved the rank in September 2015. He met and married his present spouse, Ellie Day, many years before the achievement.

She is the president of the Brighter Days Foundation, which supports child-serving organizations in Central Ohio.”
Katherine Zhu & Collin Morikawa
Collin Morikawa started his PGA Tour career with 22 consecutive made cuts, which was bettered only by Tiger Woods’ 25-hit run. He has four PGA Tour victories under his belt, including the 2020 PGA Championship. In May 2018, Collin Morikawa held the No. 1 ranking in golf for three weeks.
Mriraki’s lady, Katherine Zhu, isn’t your typical “WAG” arm candy. Rather, she’s a fantastic golfer in her own right. Any of her admirers would be rather envious of Vancouver’s ability to swing a golf club. The pair met while attending the University of California, Berkeley.
Alayna Finau & Tony Finau
Milton Pouha “Tony” Finau is a professional golfer of Tongan and Samoan heritage, the first person of such ancestry to compete on the PGA Tour. Haloti Ngata is his distant cousin. In late 2018, Finau made it into the top 10 lists of all golfers for the first time.
Tony Finau and his wife, Alayna Finau, have four children: Jraice, Leilene Aiaga, Tony, and Sage. In comparison to most professional sports WAGs, Alayna is a relatively low-profile figure. The most we know about her is that she is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Amy Mickelson & Phil Mickelson
Phil Mickelson is one of 12 players to ever win three of the four majors, and he’s one of only two golfers to have won all four. His nemesis remains the U.S. Open, in which he has finished second a record six times. It’s the course that always makes him a bridesmaid but never a bride.
The Mickelson family is quite well-known in the golfing world, especially because his wife, Amy, battled (and ultimately overcame) breast cancer. The long embrace and kiss that Phil gave his wife after winning his third Master’s was a sign of her troubles.
Jillian Wisniewski & Justin Thomas
Thomas is one of the greatest players in the game. The Kentucky native and University of Alabama graduate has been among the world’s top five for much of his career. Thomas has reportedly earned approximately $40 million throughout his PGA Tour career since turning pro in 2013.
Jillian Wisniewski, Thomas’ girlfriend, is another SEC alum, having received a journalism degree from the University of Kentucky. She was introduced as Thomas’ significant other after Thomas kissed her on the 18th green following his FedEx Cup triumph at the 2017 Championship.
Jennifer Kovacs & Alex Norén
Alex Norén is a professional Swedish golfer who rose to prominence in the spring and summer of 2017 when he ranked among the top ten golfers on the planet. In May 2017, Norén captured the BMW PGA Championship on the European Tour, becoming only the third Swede to do so since Bjorn Again.
He met and married fellow Swede Jennifer Kovacs. She was born in Stockholm and obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Business, Management, and Marketing from Stockholm University. They have a daughter together. After the birth of the girl, Noren said: “Fatherhood fave me something extra in life.”

When most guys are more concerned with how O’Neal looked than her game, it isn’t as if they have a chance with her. In 2013, Blair O’Neal married Jeff Keiser, a PetSmart financial executive. The couple welcomed their first child in the spring of 2020 when the epidemic peaked.
