As of the start of 2023, Mito Pereira is still looking for his first win on the PGA Tour, but he's been knocking on the door fairly regularly in recent times, and you suspect the man from Chile won't be winless for too much longer. 

Last year, Pereira led the PGA Championship at Southern Hills by three shots going into the final round, but Sunday didn't go to plan, and he ended up finishing in a tie for third, a shot back from winner, Justin Thomas. Still, at least he had his wife, Antonia Prida, to console him afterwards. 

Although it is unclear when the couple officially started going out together, we do know it was around or before 2014, with the golfer posting a picture of himself and Prida out on the golf course.

Prida has her own photography and illustrations Instagram page, and when she's not travelling with her husband to golf tournaments, she enjoys losing herself in art. Through this Instagram account, she shares lots of pictures, including a mix of stunning paintings, and she has a particular interest in nature. 

Her bio reads: "Mi propósito es contribuir en valoración de la naturaleza como digna fuente de admiración," loosely translates to: "My purpose is to contribute to the appreciation of nature as a worthy source of admiration."

Prida has been spotted at several of Mito's tournaments, with the duo posting snaps at Pebble Beach, Las Vegas and Texas, to name just a few. She was also at the 2022 Presidents Cup in North Carolina, cheering on her husband as they battled it out with America.

In early January 2021, the couple got engaged, with the wedding taking place a year later. At the ceremony, the couple were pictured walking under an arch of golf clubs created by the wedding guests.
