Who Is Patrick Cantlay's Wife?

Throughout Patrick Cantlay's immense success, his now wife, Nikki Guidish, has been by his side. In this piece, we get to know her a little better.

Not a lot is known about the relationship between Patrick Cantlay and Nikki Guidish as it seems they keep their lives private. As such, we are unsure when they exactly started dating, but the first time we saw her at an event was the 2021 Memorial Tournament.

At that event, Cantlay happened to win thanks to a playoff victory over Collin Morikawa, and the Saturday night withdrawal of Jon Rahm because of a positive Covid test.

We believe Guidish is a model and appears to be friends with other women who are currently going out with, or married to, professional golfers. For example, she has been pictured on her Instagram with Jena Sims, the wife of Brooks Koepka, Tori Slater, Daniel Berger's partner, and Maya Lowe, the wife of Xander Schauffele.

According to her LinkedIn and Instagram, we also believe Guidish is a pharmacist and has worked for Publix, and Palm Beach Pharmaceuticals, both of which are situated in Florida. She has also interned at the Northside Hospital, and St Mary's Medical Centre as well.

She qualified to do this after graduating from the University of South Florida where she studied Pharmacology.

Guidish and Cantlay married the day after the 2023 Ryder Cup in Rome, where Europe inflicted another away defeat on Team USA. 

Patrick and Nikki are close friends with Xander Schauffele and his wife Maya Lowe, with the quartet often holidaying together.
