Ryder Cup WAG is a viral pole-vaulting star who shot to fame while at college

Rickie Fowler may have had a Ryder Cup to forget with defeats in both the foursomes and the singles – but at least he can count on the support of his stunning wife.

Fowler began dating Allison Stokke back in 2017 a decade after snaps of her competing in professional pole vault went viral. The Californian was an internet phenomenon thanks to the photos, as she moved from University to national competition.

Stokke, who has more than 650,000 followers on Instagram, later became a sportswear model in a Nike campaign and earn millions of YouTube views thanks to her GoPro content. Despite failing to win big on the international scene, she once jumped 4.36m to rank 21st in the United States.

Fowler and Stokke have since have since married and had a daughter together, remaining one of the most famous power couples in all of sport.

Stokke, 34, was in attendance at the 2023 Ryder Cup at the Marco Simone Golf and Country Club in Italy as things didn't go to plan for USA.

Europe managed to see out a dominant win despite having some early worries in the singles to claim the 14 1/2 points they needed after losing 19-9 back in 2021 – ending up 16 1/2 to 11 1/2 in 2023.

Although the 34-year-old will be feeling down this weekend after being the first to congratulate Team Europe on the green, he can fall back on his career earnings of over £30million.

Three times tied for second at major championships, he is also currently at a career high ranking of fourth in the world.

When celebrating his sixth win on the PGA Tour back in July, Fowler was greeted by his wife and daughter to the delight of golf fans.

He said during his winners interview: "At the end of the day, getting to hold her, hang with Maya and my wife, yeah, winning’s great, but there’s a lot more to life than that.

“It’s just nice to have this one out of the way. It’s just been a long road."
