It’s fair to say that Rickie Fowler is one of golf’s most likeable stars, and his engagement to beauty queen Allison (Rebecca) Stokke only added to our love for the affable American.
She’s a beautiful model, he’s an all-conquering, absolute hero of the sport. Together they’re awesome.
We all remember that epic photo of Rickie catching up with his wife for a kiss after her pole vault competition at the 2015 World Championships in Beijing last summer, his expression showing just how much it meant for him.
Rickie himself is a successful golfer with multiple PGA tour and Masters appearances and he’s an annual fixture at the Masters tournament, amassing tens of millions in career earnings.
Allison and Rickie’s relationship started in 2016, they got engaged in 2018, and married in October 2021.
His wife, Allison Stokke, became famous as a pole vaulter ten years ago after she went viral on the internet for her good looks. She dealt with a lot of negative attention, but she came out stronger in the end.
Who is Allison Stokke?
Allison Stokke is a famous pole vaulter from California who has been all over the internet due to her appearances in Sports Illustrated and all over Reddit.
Born into an athletic family in California, and she had a lot of pressure to be just like her older brother. Though at first that meant gymnastics, eventually pole vaulting became the thing for her.
Despite breaking her leg twice while in high school, she set multiple records and kept on moving toward becoming an Olympic athlete.
Allison’s Internet Fame
Allison’s track and field career was going well until 2007 when she competed in New York. A photo taken by a journalist found it’s way onto a sports website ‘White Leather’.
Remarking on the attractiveness of seventeen-year-old Stokke under the heading “Pole Vaulting is Sexy, Barely Legal”, badly damaging Allison’s image among people who had never seen or met her.
When 17-year old superstar athlete Allison became an overnight sensation, her super hot looks captivated the blogosphere for a few days.
But even as legal action ensued to remove pictures, Facebook groups popped up in droves showing their appreciation for what had become one spectacular looking woman!
Unwanted Attention For Allison Stokke
Allison was not prepared for the newfound unwanted fame she received. Allison soon found herself with unwanted attention from people following everywhere who could potentially cause problems if they got too close to her.
To avoid any unwanted negativity, Allison started locking up every time someone came knocking at night so no one would be able to find their way into where she lived safely within these walls of protection from prying eyes.
Allison was getting more and more requests for interviews, photoshoots, etc. She realized that her looks were too much of a distraction from the sport she loved so dearly; pole vaulting.
Major companies started to ask Allison if they could sponsor her and help cash in on all of this new found fame – something she never wanted or asked for but now couldn’t get away from!
Off To UC Berkeley For Allison Stokke
Allison never stopped pursuing her dream of becoming an Olympian by pole vaulting.
With a full scholarship to UC Berkeley, she was able to stay close with family and pursue both academics and athletics while competing at the collegiate level.
She did not make it on Team USA despite improving her record, but still continued in spite of this setback as well as numerous injuries heretofore unknown during high school career.
Allison’s Modelling Career Takes Off
Allison Stokke is a model with some serious street cred. She started off in the modeling industry at 16 and had Nike come knocking for her to do many campaigns including one that featured GoPro which got over 6 million views by 2016.
Add to this, she was still pole vaulting without setting the world on fire until 2017 when she met Rickie Fowler who made all of those dreams seem possible again!
Rickie and Allison (How they met)
Their love story seems to have started when they met at a party in 2017. They had their first encounter together, and then both posted pictures on Instagram.
Jason Day confirmed that Rickie missed the meeting with his American team for her new girlfriend; he later made it official by posting about them online himself.
Rickie is a really likable guy. His golf game has been on point lately, and he’s yet to win the big one with Allison by his side as she now accompanies him on every round that he plays.
He used to make fun of his own single status, posing for pics after every major all smiles with the wives and other players around–a sort of funny joke.
All jokes aside Rickie popped the question in 2018 when they were engaged at Southampton Beach while vacationing in New York City!
And you guessed it: Allison said yes! The two made their engagement public via her Instagram account just weeks later; posting pictures from both locations where they took up residence (Rickie back home with family so close!)
