Rickie Fowler has enjoyed a hugely successful career, with the American picking up multiple PGA Tour titles, as well as making several appearances in both the Ryder Cup and the Presidents Cup.

Although Fowler has had many successes, there was also a time where his game was struggling, with the American seeing his world ranking drop as low as 173rd at one point.

However, after switching caddies to Ricky Romano, as well as switching coaches back to Butch Harmon, Fowler has found his form again, with his wife, Allison Stokke, being by his side throughout the ups-and-downs.

It is reported that Fowler and Stokke began dating in 2017, when they were first pictured together at a MotoGP event at the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, Texas. Not long after that, the pair were seen together on the PGA Tour, with Stokke caddying for Fowler at the Masters Par 3 Contest in April 2018. 

Only a few months later, the couple would get engaged, eventually tying the knot in Cabo, Mexico in October 2019. They were originally due to marry in Baker's Bay, Bahamas but Hurricane Dorian meant they had to find a new venue.

Stokke is often out supporting Rickie at tournaments and was present for her husband's victories at the 2017 Hero World Challenge, 2019 Waste Management Phoenix Open and 2023 Rocket Mortgage Classic as well as the 2017 and 19 Presidents Cups and 2023 Ryder Cup.

So, what do we know about Stokke? Well, she was born in California and, whilst at high school, was very skilled at pole vaulting, breaking a number of American records at high school level.

Because of her skill, she received an athletic scholarship to study Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley. Stokke would continue to pole vault, competing at two NCAA Division I Championships and, at one point, she did attempt to make the US Olympic team for the 2012 Olympics.

Three years later, in 2015, she became a sportswear model for Nike and Athleta, with Stokke also working for GoPro, in which she attached a camera to the end of a pole to show the inner workings of the sport.

After getting married in October 2019, the couple announced the birth of their first child, Maya, in 2021. In an Instagram post, Fowler wrote "Happy Thanksgiving everyone! As you can see Allison & I are beyond thankful…a whole new meaning to life!! Maya Fowler born 11/18/21. My heart is full!!"

Stokke also appeared on Netflix's Full Swing Season 2 alongside Rickie, where the pair opened up on their relationship.

“She’s a lot better looking than me, she’s a lot smarter than me. She’s better than me, not at golf but I’ve got that covered. It’s just one of those things it just felt easy when we met," Fowler said of his wife.

“Allison will want to know how I’m feeling or how it went on the golf course. I don’t talk a whole lot. Going through this struggle for the last few years and learning to open up and share more is not easy but for me being able to get input or hear her side, it means something.”

“I did track all throughout college, I didn’t follow golf but I knew vaguely probably about five golfers and he was one of them and I just knew that he wore orange," she said of her husband, before discussing his drop in form.

“It feels gut wrenching at times. There’s probably a bit more silence than normal," Stokke said.

“I think now it’s just later and not to see that there will never be many struggles in the future but I’ve got to imagine he’s feeling like if there are, he can figure it out.”
