Nobody gets into golf for the women. Think back to your high school years and try to remember who the girls generally flocked to. It was the football players, the basketball players, or, if you're Canadian, the hockey players. Yet, as the old saying goes, money can't buy you happiness, but it can get you a beautiful woman, or something like that. Look no further than a balding Tiger Woods, who hooked up with hundreds of women and managed to keep his sexual exploits under wraps for years all while being the best golfer on the planet. And as you'll see in this list, there are several golfers dating way out of their league.
That isn't to say there's some good looking dudes in golf. In fact, the culture of the sport has changed considerably in recent years. No longer are the John Dalys and Fuzzy Zoellers of the world dominating the sport; instead it's the young, in-shape professionals like Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, and Rickie Fowler. We're confident those dudes wouldn't need the money to find an attractive partner, but it doesn't hurt. With that in mind, here's the current 15 hottest wives and girlfriends of PGA golfers. Make your own judgement on who's dating well out of their league - it shouldn't be difficult.
15 David Toms
David Toms is the 379th ranked golfer in the world, but 50-year-old has a high-ranking wife, at least according to a 2003 Sports Illustrated poll. Sonya Toms ranked third in the poll asking which golfer had the hottest wife or girlfriend on tour and, while 13 years have passed, she has aged wonderfully.
14 Phil Mickelson
Look, we're not saying Phil Mickelson is an ugly dude, but he's never going to make the cover of Men's Fitness. And given what we've been able to see and read about his personality, perhaps he might not be the best catch on tour. Yet, he somehow landed a bombshell of a wife in Amy Mickelson.
13 Henrik Stenson
Sometimes stereotypes can be harmless and accurate. For instance, if we told you Henrik Stenson's wife is from Sweden, you would likely assume she's an incredibly hot blonde. And you would be right. Stenson, who became the first Swede to win a major in 2016, won his biggest prize in the 1990s when he met his wife, Emma Lofgren.
12 Jason Day
It's certainly less common for men to date older women, but nobody is going to fault Jason Day for going against the norm. His wife, Ellie Day, is only two years older than him after all, and is an absolute stunner. The two were introduced through Jason's caddie, Collin Swatton, and married in 2009. They have two children together and currently reside in Ohio.
11 Luke Donald
Like many of the couples on this list, Luke Donald met his wife Diane while attending university. After years of dating, the Northwestern grads got engaged in 2006 and married the following year in Greece, where Diane's family is from - her maiden name is Antonopoulos.
10 Matt Kuchar
Other than pursing a career as a professional golfer, attending the Georgia Institute of Technology might have been the best decision of Matt Kuchar's life. It was there that the Florida native met his future wife, Sybi Parker, who was a member of the school's tennis team at the time. Interestingly enough, it was tennis that brought the two together, as Matt grew up wish aspirations of playing the sport professionally before realizing he was a better golfer.
9 Justin Rose
2013 U.S. Open champion Justin Rose has been with his wife, Kate, for over 15 years and married for over half of that time, tying the knot in 2006. Like Justin, Kate was born in the United Kingdom, but the pair met in the United States while Justin was a few years into his career on tour. They were able to stay close during those early years as Justin helped Kate get a job as an assistant at IMG, the firm that represented him.
8 Gary Woodland
Gary Woodland has just two PGA Tour wins in his career, but the 32-year-old is one of the biggest mashers in the sport, known for his ability to hit the ball a great distance. Off the course, he's been hitting home runs for a long time. He recently married his longtime girlfriend Gabby Granado, who is a bombshell in every sense of the word, and, just over a week ago, he announced that Gabby was pregnant with twins on Instagram with the humorous caption, "First time I've been excited about a double."
7 Austin Johnson
Okay, technically we're cheating here with the inclusion of Samantha Maddox, but we're going out on a limb and assuming few people reading this are sticklers for the rules. Simply put, we can't ignore the Johnson's ability to get incredibly hot women. We know about Dustin's significant other (we'll get to her later), but his brother Austin, who serves as his caddie, has some skills of his own.
6 Ricky Barnes
Athletes tend to date athletes, which is understandable, although we have a hard time seeing the connection between Ricky Barnes and his wife, Suzanne Stonebarger Barnes. Ricky is either an incredibly nice and funny guy, or he's working with a large driver, because Suzanne is a gorgeous goddess.
5 Jason Dufner
While we can't state with certainty that Amanda Dufner is dating anyone on the PGA Tour, there are multiple reports that she's currently dating Tiger Woods. In January of 2017 she reportedly purchased a home in Jupiter, Florida, just miles from Woods' mansion. Woods and Dufner, by all accounts, were involved in a fling that led to the former's breakup with Olympic skier Lindsey Vonn, and, of course, contributed to Amanda's divorce from her then-husband, Jason Dufner.
4 Webb Simpson
There are millions of breakup stories which involve one partner stating it's a good idea for the couple to spend time apart. In 99 percent of those cases, it leads to a nasty breakup. But for Webb Simpson and his wife Taylor Dowd, it apparently proved they were right for each other all along. The couple dated while attending Wake Forest and broke up for a full year after graduating. Taylor says they didn't even speak to each other once during that year.
3 Paul Casey
Former world number three Paul Casey met Pollyanna Woodward at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix Formula 1 Chequered Flag Ball in 2011. They got engaged over Christmas in 2013 and welcomed their first son in September 2014.
2 Daniel Berger
The last couple of years have been great for Daniel Berger. The Florida native was named the 2014-15 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year, and shortly after receiving the award began dating Tori Slater, who, if you ask us, is the real prize. Her looks have earned her modeling and advertising gigs, as well as over 20,000 Instagram followers.
1 Dustin Johnson
As if there was ever any doubt. Paulina Gretzky, the daughter of the greatest hockey player to ever live, has long been not only the hottest partner on the PGA Tour, but one of the hottest social media celebrities. In fact, her selfie game and willingness to bare skin once earned backlash from The Great One himself. And while she has since eased off on the excessive Instagram posts, there's a reason she has over 500,000 followers.
The couple isn't yet married, but they have welcomed their first child, Tatum Gretzky Johnson, and Paulina is currently pregnant with a second child. Johnson, the former bad boy of the PGA, has certainly turned his life around; in addition to recently becoming the top-ranked golfer in the world, he's engaged to the top-ranked WAG in golf as per our list, certainly an honor every golfer aspires to.
