RICKIE FOWLER has been performing brilliantly on the golf course and in the Wag department.
The American ace has been engaged to pole vaulter and sportswear model Allison Stokke since May 2017, with the pair first spotted on a date at the MotoGP Grand Prix of Americas previously. Here’s more…
Who is Allison Stokke and how old is she?
Allison Stokke was born on March 22, 1098, in Newport Beach, California.
The American is a pole vaulter who rose to fame after photos of her competing in 2007, aged 17, went viral.
The photos gained the attention of sports blog “With Leather”, who have a mainly male audience, and from there the images went worldwide, with comment pieces from The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Der Spiegel and even the BBC.
Stokke wasn’t entirely happy with her new found fame, telling The Washington Post: “It just all feels really demeaning.
“I worked so hard for pole vaulting and all this other stuff, and it’s almost like that doesn’t matter.
“Nobody sees that. Nobody really sees me.”
Stokke jumped a lifetime best of 4.36 metres in 2012, but failed to be selected for the American Olympic team.
She continued to compete despite not ranking highly in the standings – and also worked as a sportswear model.
Stokke started dating golfer Rickie Fowler in 2017.
The 29-year old has been regularly seen supporting her boyfriend on the course and frequently uploads pictures of her and the golfing star.
Who is her fiance Rickie Fowler?
Rickie is an American professional golfer who was born on December 13, 1988, in California.
He turned professional in 2009 and has had eight pro wins.
During 2014, he placed second in the US Open and Open Championships and third place at the PGA Championships.
He continued his success in 2015 with a win at The Players Championship and Scottish Open.
He had less success in the 2016 Olympic Games placing 37th.
Fowler was left red-faced at the 2016 Ryder Cup, after he was pictured third-wheeling in a team USA celebratory snap, but it looks like he won’t be next time around.
Fowler’s team-mates were pictured embracing their partners, while he stood lonesome, but still smiling.
On Friday June 8, 2018, Fowler announced his engagement to Stokke via Instagram.
He posted: “Today is National Best Friend Day so I wanted to lock mine down…I WON”
