Rickie Fowler, Girlfriend Announce Major Personal News

Rickie Fowler and Allison Stokke.

Rickie Fowler is about to have a big week. The star golfer, who's yet to win a major championship, is set to play in the U.S. Open. He's one of the favorites.

The 29-year-old golfer is going to have a tough time topping what happened over the weekend, though - he got engaged.

Fowler, who once poked fun at the fact that he was single while basically all of his golfer friends were locked up, is now a taken man, too.

The former Oklahoma State star proposed to his girlfriend, former star pole vaulter Allison Stokke, at the beach. "Today is National Best Friend Day so I wanted to lock mine down...I WON!!" he wrote.

"Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And happy national best friend day to my best best best friend! I love you!!!" Stokke posted.

Congrats to Rickie and Allison!

The U.S. Open is set to begin on Thursday morning. Fowler is set to tee off shortly after 8 a.m. E.T.
