Martin and Gerina Piller aren’t your typical golf-loving couple. They’re a really, really good golf-loving couple. With Martin trying to make his way on the PGA Tour and Gerina already an established winner on the LPGA Tour, a weekend like this was probably something they both have dreamed of: they’re in contention to win.
Martin is playing in the Valero Texas Open and tied for sixth, five shots back of leader Ricky Barnes. Gerina is playing in the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic Presented by CTBC and tied for fourth, also five shots back of the leader.

Whether Sunday will play out to the Piller’s liking is something we’ll have to watch, but it’s pretty cool to see a couple having success on the highest level at the same time.
