One of professional golf’s most eligible bachelors is off the market. Rickie Fowler announced last night on Instagram that he had proposed to his longtime girlfriend, Allison Stokke.
Fowler is one of the favorites for next week’s U.S. Open and Shinnecock Hills and now he’ll head up to Long Island with a big life decision off of his plate.
“Today is National Best Friend Day so I wanted to lock mine down,” Fowler wrote on Instagram. “I WON!!”
If Stokke’s name or picture rings a bell, it’s because she became an internet sensation courtesy of a photo snapped of her during a high school pole vaulting competition back in 2008.
She went on to become an All-American at the University of California but hasn’t yet made it to the U.S. Olympic team. She has more than 500,000 followers on Instagram and it’s easy to see why.
Congratulations to Rickie and Allison.
