Paul Casey has enjoyed a career that some golfer's could only dream of. A 15-time European Tour winner, he has also secured multiple PGA Tour titles as well as five Ryder Cup appearances.
For over 10 years, there has been an influential figure by Casey's side, with his wife, Pollyanna Woodward, supporting Casey since 2011. Get to know her here.
Having divorced his previous partner, Jocelyn Hefner, in 2011, Casey (opens in new tab) went on to meet Woodward later that year at the Formula 1 Chequered Flag Ball at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
After dating for two years, the pair became engaged during the Christmas period of 2013, eventually getting married in January 2015. Together, the couple live in Arizona and have two children, a son called Lex and a daughter called Astaria.

Woodward, the youngest of six children, is best known for her role as a co-presenter on the television-series, The Gadget Show. She had this role from 2010 to 2013, with the job taking her around the world.
According to her website, she has a Guinness World Record for the longest distance travelled on a water-powered jetpack, travelling 22.64 miles in under 5 hours.
Before working on the Gadget Show, Woodward acted in Ghost Squad, Doctors and then competed in Popstars: The Rivals in 2002. She also finished in the top-10 for Miss England.
Woodward has also worked on The Wright Stuff and then as a presenter for the British Touring Car Championship and British Superbike Championship. Specialising in technology, she was also a technology correspondent on TalkSPORT.
Her final piece of TV work was competing on the television show Splash! in 2014. She came 11th out of 20 contestants.
Away from television, Woodward often hikes mountains and has completed a range of adrenalin-fuelled activities including sky-diving over The Palm in Dubai and jumping off the stratosphere hotel in Las Vegas and is also a keen skier.
Woodward often follows Casey (opens in new tab) around the world whilst he competes on both the DP World and PGA Tours and was seen at multiple Ryder Cups and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Matt joined Golf Monthly in February 2021 covering weekend news, before also transitioning to equipment and testing. After freelancing for Golf Monthly and The PGA for 18 months, he was offered a full-time position at the company in October 2022 and continues to cover weekend news and social media, as well as help look after Golf Monthly’s many buyers’ guides and equipment reviews.
Taking up the game when he was just seven years of age, Matt made it into his county squad just a year later and continues to play the game at a high standard, with a handicap of around 2-4. To date, his best round came in 2016, where he shot a six-under-par 66 having been seven-under through nine holes. He currently plays at Witney Lakes in Oxfordshire and his favourite player is Rory McIlroy, despite nearly being struck by his second shot at the 17th during the 2015 BMW PGA Championship.
