Matt Fitzpatrick Shirtless, Girlfriend, Titles, Sponsors. Here’s a question for those of you who know your golf: Is it better for the sport if there is one dominant player like when Tiger Woods and, to a lesser extent, Rory McIlroy was winning all the trophies? Or would you it be better if the game is more equal, champions come as fast as they go, and that several players have the chance of winning a major which appears to be what’s happening these days?
Truthfully, we do not know the better answer. We think a dominant player may bring in the casuals but we’re also fans of more people dividing the prize money in the lucrative game of golf.
Dusting Johnson Shirtless Update. We are updating this post to note that Dustin and longtime girlfriend Paulina Gretzky have finally tied the knot (Yay!), that he’s won two major championship trophies (Yay!), and that he’s reached the pinnacle of the game of the sport of golf by ranking number one at one time (Yay!). First, the wedding! Here are photos of Dustin and Paulina when they tied the knot in 22 April last year after ten years of being together.
Golfers in Underwear and Shirtless Pros. Our post on male tennis players in underwear is one of the more popular posts here on Famewatcher so we decided to do a similar post featuring professional golfers. Initially, we thought it would be a challenge considering that golfers don’t have a reputation for shirtlessness or for chucking off their trousers, but we did find some pro and amateur golfers who are doing just that. Let’s check them out, shall we?
First up is these group of college golfers from Bethany College who went au natural for a photoshoot back in 2011. Sadly for the team, the athletic director suspended them for three tournaments.
Rory McIlroy Shirtless, Wedding, Titles. Since we last blogged about him, our Irish golfer has gone on to get himself hitched, win more golfing titles, and brought home more awards. Let’s talk first about his wedding, shall we?
Unfortunately, we can’t find any pics from their wedding but here’s a report about the event from the Belfast Telegraph: “Rory McIlroy has married American girlfriend Erica Stoll at a lavish ceremony at Ashford Castle. The Holywood golfer was joined by a host of top names and celebrities, including One Direction’s Niall Horan, along with fellow player Sergio Garcia. Guests arrived at the venue in Cong, Co Mayo by helicopter and luxury cars on Saturday, before making their way up the winding path to Ashford Castle.”
Joaquin Niemann Shirtless, Girlfriend, Titles, Sponsors. Aside from Xander Shauffele, another young golfer who has managed to establish himself as a contender in the world of golf is Chilean pro Joaquín Niemann who is currently ranked at number 29 in the Official World Golf Ranking.
Like Xander, Joaquin also won the Greenbrier Classic (2019) which is his first PGA Tour title to date and which earned him a cool 1,350,000 in US dollahs (to quote RuPaul). To date, the 22 year old athlete has banked a total of $7,811,376 in prize money and, given his young age, expect that amount to go double, triple, quadruple, etc, etc in the coming years.
Anyhoo, here’s Joaquin after his Greenbrier victory:
Xander Schauffele Girlfriend, Ethnicity, Sponsors, Golf Titles. Time for more Hot Male Golfers and, this time, let us check out Xander Schauffele who is currently ranked #5 in the Official World Golf Ranking.
Pretty good, huh? To date, Xander has 4 PGA Tour titles to his name including the 2018 World Golf Championships held in Shanghai. His other victories include the 2019 Sentry Tournament of Champions, the 2017 Tour Championship, and the 2017 Greenbrier Classic. He’s also done well in the majors having reached tied in second place at the 2018 Open Championship as well as the 2019 Masters Tournament.
Here’s Xander with his first professional trophy, the 2017 Greenbrier Classic:
