Rickie Fowler is engaged to girlfriend Allison Stokke after Fowler proposed to his long-time love on a beach. He did it on National Best Friend Day, and he had a photographer in wait — Justin Thomas — to capture the whole thing.
Who could say no to a beach proposal?!
The pair set off rumors in April 2017 that they could be an item when they each posted pictures with each other on Instagram, with playful captions about a contest they had. Jason Day outed the couple at the 2017 Zurich Classic of New Orleans, during which they played as partners. Stokke was a pole-vaulter in college at the University of California, and nowadays she’s a fitness model.

The Hamptons isn’t a bad place to make a memory like that, particularly leading into the US Open at Shinnecock Hills, where Fowler hopes to capture his first major championship.
Meanwhile, as Fowler looks to sew up his place on the 2018 Ryder Cup team, he won’t have to look around with an Internet shrug emoji when the US wins the biennial matches on foreign soil for the first time since 1993. He’ll have someone to kiss.
