Winning in Love and Golf: Patrick Cantlay and Nikki Guidish Romance
From secret relationship to engaged
Patrick and Nikki’s relationship was a secret for a while, but they finally went public in June 2021. Since then, Nikki has been Patrick’s lucky charm, cheering him on at every tournament he’s competed in.
The couple recently took their relationship to the next level and engaged in September 2022. It seems like Patrick couldn’t wait to put a ring on it, especially after defending his BMW Championship title. And, of course, Nikki shared another adorable photo on Instagram to announce their engagement.
Now, we don’t know for sure how they met, but based on Nikki’s Instagram, she’s tight with some of the other ladies who are dating or married to professional golfers. Could it be that Patrick and Nikki were introduced through mutual friends? Who knows.

Not married, but still winning
They haven’t said “I do” yet, but Nikki Guidish and Patrick Cantlay’s love story is still going strong. Nikki lives in Jupiter, Florida, while Patrick calls North Palm Beach home, but despite their close proximity, they’ve chosen not to move in together. That’s right; they’re keeping things old school!
But don’t be fooled by their lack of co-habitation; Nikki is more than just a girlfriend to Patrick. She’s his biggest cheerleader and was right there by his side when he won the $15 million FedEx Cup in Atlanta. She even ran onto the field to seal the victory with a kiss.
Of course, Nikki couldn’t wait to take to Instagram to show off her man and share her support for his big win.
