In the closing moments of triumph at The Masters this Sunday, cameras will pan the gallery to find the significant others of the game's greatest golfers. There are few moments as compelling and heart-wrenching as when couples embrace after sports victories, and these men benefit greatly from the companions they've found. Here are a few of the ladies you should look out for this weekend.
Arguably the most famous of the significant others (think Victoria Beckham). The two connected last year and are still going strong. Wozniacki is currently ranked 6th in the world when it comes to women's tennis. She took the tennis world by storm in the past year or so and was the second-highest earning female athlete in the world last year (only trailing Maria Sharapova). Wozniacki has even invited McIlroy to play with her in charity events, bringing him onto the court in New York.
In March of 2009, Amy got the news that every woman fears; she had breast cancer. Husband Phil immediately postponed his schedule to be by his wife's side while she underwent treatment. After a birdie to clinch the 2010 Masters, Phil made a beeline for Amy in one of the most romantic embraces in sports history. Fortunately, Amy's cancer was detected early and she is living a strong and healthy life. The couple have three children (Amanda, Sophia, and Evan).
Nicki takes a hands-on approach to her husband's golfing career...as his frequent caddie. The two headed to the altar in 1993 and soon became one of the first husband and wife golfer/caddie pairings. As a former college golfer herself, Nicki no doubt helps the hubby when he gets stuck in a jam. And people say never to marry a co-worker.
Kate and Justin Rose tied the knot in December of 2006. Kate sits as Second Vice President on The PGA Tour Wives Association. She has helped the association raise millions of dollars since its inception. Expect the Rose children to be highly athletic, as Kate was a former international gymnast. She represented her home country of England in many international competitions.
Now you'll look like the smartest person watching on Sunday when you spot one of these lovely ladies before the commentators.
