PGA Tour star Patrick Cantlay gets engaged to girlfriend Nikki Guidish

The stars of the PGA Tour can finally put their feet up and relax after an intense season which saw Rory McIlroy win the FedEx Cup for the third time.

Many of them have jetted off for a well-earned rest and this is precisely what Patrick Cantlay and his girlfriend Nikki Guidish did. They went away to Napa with Xander Schauffele and his wife Maya.

It looks like Cantlay chose this as the perfect time and place to ask his girlfriend to marry him. Nikki revealed in an Instagram post on Monday that she indeed said 'yes'.

Nikki graduated from the University of Central Florida in 2014 and she got a doctorate in pharmacy from the University of South Florida. 

After she posted their engagement photo on Instagram, a number of different people from the golf world congratulated the happy couple.

Nelly Korda, Jessica Korda, Amanda Balionis Renner and Brooks Koepka's wife Jena Sims all sent their good wishes in the comments of her post.

It marks a great end to another great year for Cantlay who won the BMW Championship for the second year running. He became the first player to successfully defend a title in the FedEx Cup Playoffs.

Alongside his good friend Schauffele, they won the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in April. In 20 starts on the PGA Tour, he made a staggering 12 top-10s and earned $9,369,605, missing only two cuts.

The 30-year-old is set to tee it up with Schauffele again in the Presidents Cup later this month at Quail Hollow. In 2019, they won two points together towards America's 16-14 win over the Internationals.
