RICKIE FOWLER has been performing brilliantly on the golf course and in the Wag department, and will be desperate for that to continue as the Masters gets underway.

Three years after being mocked at the Ryder Cup for having no significant other, he will turn up at Augusta with stunning pole vaulter Allison Stokke.

Who is Allison Stokke and how old is she?

Allison Stokke was born on March 22, 1989, in Newport Beach, California.

The American is a pole vaulter who rose to fame after photos of her competing in 2007, aged 17, went viral.

The photos gained the attention of sports blog “With Leather”, who have a mainly male audience, and from there the images went worldwide, with comment pieces from The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Der Spiegel and even the BBC.

Stokke wasn’t entirely happy with her new found fame, telling The Washington Post: “It just all feels really demeaning.

“I worked so hard for pole vaulting and all this other stuff, and it’s almost like that doesn’t matter.

“Nobody sees that. Nobody really sees me.”

Stokke jumped a lifetime best of 4.36 metres in 2012, but failed to be selected for the American Olympic team.

She continued to compete despite not ranking highly in the standings – and also worked as a sportswear model.

Stokke started dating golfer Rickie Fowler in 2017.

The 29-year old has been regularly seen supporting her boyfriend on the course and frequently uploads pictures of her and the golfing star.

He continued his success in 2015 with a win at The Players Championship and Scottish Open.

He had less success in the 2016 Olympic Games placing 37th.

Fowler was left red-faced at the 2016 Ryder Cup, after he was pictured third-wheeling in a team USA celebratory snap, but it looks like he won’t be next time around.

Fowler’s team-mates were pictured embracing their partners, while he stood lonesome, but still smiling.

On Friday June 8, 2018, Fowler announced his engagement to Stokke via Instagram.

He posted: “Today is National Best Friend Day so I wanted to lock mine down…I WON”
