00:00
Ricky Fowler's pursuit of a first major title continues,
00:03
but he's already busy celebrating one of life's
00:05
major milestones instead, getting engaged.
00:08
Fowler popped the big question to girlfriend,
00:09
Allison Stokke, and, sorry ladies,
00:12
but she said yes, obviously, it's Ricky Fowler.
00:16
And, has a beach proposal ever not worked?
00:18
Fowler took a knee in some Hamptons sand
00:20
while taking a break from practicing
00:22
for the 2018 U.S. Open at nearby Shinnecock Hills.
00:25
Talk about a successful business trip.
00:27
And, talk about a rock.
00:29
That thing is practically the size of a golf ball.
00:31
Not that we all didn't see this engagement coming.
00:33
Folwer and Stokke, a professional pole vaulter
00:35
and fitness molder, have been inseparable for the past year,
00:38
whether it be dressing up for Halloween,
00:40
or dressing up for the 4th of July,
00:42
or dressing up for Christmas,
00:44
or dressing up for the Masters.
00:46
And, once the two of them went to a golf course together
00:48
and got enranged, well, it was just a matter of time.
00:53
Still, it's quite a quick turnaround
00:55
from Fowler's famed bachelor photo
00:57
taken at the 2016 Ryder Cup.
00:59
Just seven months later, Fowler poetically announced
01:02
on Instagram, #RickFoundaChick.
01:06
Hey, when you know, you know.
01:08
Ricky joined Jordan Spieth and Smylie Kaufman
01:10
in taking this relationship plunge,
01:12
meaning three of the four ESPY 2K members are now engaged.
01:17
They grow up so fast.
01:19
Of course, that leaves the fourth golfer in this group,
01:22
Justin Thomas, in a bit of a tricky spot.
01:25
So, congrats, Ricky, but sorry JT,
01:28
U.S. Open pressure's got nothing on this.
01:31
