Allison Stokke, Paulina Gretzky, Jena Simms... the wives and girlfriends of PGA golfers
PGA and LIV Tour wives and girlfriends can be seen on the course and social media cheering on their favorite golfers as they battle the elements on different courses around the world.
The 2023 US Open is underway and we thought we’d introduce you to the players’ better halves. Who are some of these ladies and what do we know about them?
Paulina Gretzky: Married to LIV golfer Dustin Johnson
Yep, that last name sounds familiar and yes, that’s the great one’s daughter. Wayne Gretzky, not only the best hockey player ever, but one heck of a golfer too, has a beautiful daughter who can be seen on Instagram, but also following husband DJ around the world as he hits a little white golf ball around.
They got married in April 2022 after a 10-year engagement and have two children together. Paulina is an actress, model and a singer with over 1.1 million followers on Instagram.
Jena Sims: Married to LIV golfer Brooks Koepka
We got to meet Koepka’s wife on Netflix’s ‘Full Swing’ in episode 2. She did her best to cheer up her dejected husband who was going through some tough times physically and mentally after deciding to join the LIV Tour. The couple got married in 2022. Sims has 268 thousand followers on Instagram and in her profile description includes her nonprofit @pageantofhope and business @dibsbeauty.
Erica Stoll: Married to Rory McIlroy
They got married in 2017 and their daughter was born in 2020. McIlroy is originally from Northern Ireland, but Stoll is from Rochester, New York, where the 2023 PGA Championship is currently being played. Rory is a member at Oak Hill Country Club in his wife’s hometown.
Lilia Schneider: Dating LIV golfer Bryson DeChambeau
Schneider plays golf at Marian University is an up and coming golf influencer, who some have compared to Paige Spiranac. Schneider, with 53 thousand Instagram followers is still a long way from Spiranac’s 3.3 million, but the comparisons are inevitable. Bryson’s ex-girlfriend Hunter Nugent was who let the world know that they were no longer together and that DeChambeau’s new girl was the Michigan native.
Allison Stokke: Married to PGA golfer Rickie Fowler
The couple started dating in 2017. The world took notice of Stokke when she was still in high school. A photo of her at a pole-vaulting event went viral in 2007 when she was only 17 years old. She went on to pole vault in college and then met Rickie and the rest is history. She has been seen caddying for Fowler at the par-3 tournament at the Masters and she has worked as a sportswear model for several brands.
Victoria Slater: PGA golfer Daniel Berger’s long-time girlfriend
Slater is a real estate agent out in Florida and can be seen supporting Berger on and off the course. The couple live on Jupiter Island in the sunshine state, a popular place of residence for pro golfers as we saw in the Netflix docuseries ‘Full Swing’. She has 38,000 Instagram followers, where she lets her fans follow her glamorous lifestyle
