While the pro athletes compete to see who will take home the title, many of their wives, fiancées, and girlfriends will be cheering them on from the sidelines. 

But who exactly are the females behind the sports stars? While some of them try to stay out of the public eye and live a private life as stay-at-home mothers, others met their beaus while working in the golf world.

Meanwhile some have established their own careers away from sport – from marketing to presenting TV programmes. 

Here FEMAIL reveals all about the WAGs of the golf world…

ERICA STOLL

HUSBAND: RORY MCILROY  

It is unsurprisingly that Erica appears so enthusiastic on the golf course with the sport taking centre stage of her career.

The wife of Irish golfer Mcllroy is so passionate about the sport that she has previously taken on the role of Championship Volunteer Operations at the PGA of America.

The couple first made their relationship public in 2014 when they were seen together in Royal County Down, the site of the Irish Open. 

However, Erica is not Rory’s first love, with the sportsmen engaged to marry his caddie Caroline Wozniacki with whom he is rumoured to have terminated their engagement  over the phone.

The couple tied the knot in 2017, and went on to welcome their daughter, Poppy Kennedy in August 2020

It paved the way for Erica, who received an oval cut diamond ring from Rory worth an estimated €600,000 (£500,600) – more than double the price of the sparkler he gave Caroline.   

Speaking to The Independent prior to getting married, he said: ‘Erica has been around me quite a lot at tournaments but we have really just tried to keep it low key. She is a very low key person, not the kind to broadcast stuff, but that side of my life is really good just now. We are excited, our parents are excited, so it is a really happy time.’

The couple tied the knot in 2017, and went on to welcome their daughter, Poppy Kennedy in August 2020.

Ancer’s social media tells a similar story and in one photo he praises her cute grin with the message: ‘That smile though!’

Nicole has 5,332 followers on her Instagram page, and it is likely those numbers have bumped up in the last few days.

Otherwise not much is known about her and she appears to lead a quiet, contained life, which is not always the case with the partners of sport stars.

She and Ancer have been dating publicly since at least the beginning of the year.

She now works as a senior business manager at McGarryBowen – an advertising agency – per her LinkedIn, and is based in Chicago, Illinois.

Back in 2017, when Justin won his first major title at the PGA Championship, she was there cheering him on – but he revealed in an interview afterwards that she almost missed the iconic win.

‘I truly felt like I was going to win. I remember my girlfriend was supposed to fly out at about 7 P.M. and I was like, you need to change your flight,’ he said.

‘I just feel like I don’t want you to miss this. I feel like I’m going to get it done.’

In November 2021, the athlete announced that he and Jillian were gearing up to get married during an appearance on the No Laying Up podcast.

Justin referred to his longtime girlfriend as his ‘new fiancée’ at the time, while discussing their upcoming Thanksgiving plans.

He didn’t share many more details, however, he did reveal that the proposal happened ‘a couple weeks’ earlier.

Earlier this year, the golfer spoke to People Magazine about wedding planning, and he admitted that he was more focused on playing golf – while his future bride was handling all things wedding related.

‘As I’ve learned from a lot of my good friends, I’m doing a great job as I’m getting out of the way, letting Jill do her thing,’ he joked.

He added that there was one thing he was passionate about when it comes to their big day: ‘No phones, that was my number one thing.’

Jillian (pictured with Justin in 2017) often appears on Justin’s social media, with him sharing many loved-up selfies with her over the years, but her own social media accounts are on private

‘I want people to be in the moment and I want just – this day and age, it seems like everything everybody does, you got to have it on video or have it on pictures,’ he continued.

‘And I just want everyone there to enjoy their time and be in the moment, as opposed to watching it on their screen. That was was a big thing for me.’

He also added that he couldn’t be more excited to finally make it ‘official’ with Jillian.

‘We feel like we already [are married] because of how long we’ve been together and she’s such a, just a great influence on me,’ he said.

‘I mean, she truly makes me a better person and every time being around her brings out a better side of me.

‘And we’re so fortunate to get to do what we do. And I’m so fortunate that she is as patient and kind of halts her life for the lifestyle that I live. We’ve got a lot of great fond memories to look forward to down the road.’

Jillian often appears on Justin’s social media, with him sharing many loved-up selfies and PDA-filled snaps with her over the years, but her own social media accounts are on private.

‘I don’t know if that’s because of Jena or because I understand more of how things work, but you mature a little more.

‘I can’t put my finger on it. But when it comes together, and you see what works, you say, this is the program, and I’m going to stick with it.’ 

Jena – who is an actress and is most known for her role in the Sharknado movies – is often photographed supporting Brooks at his golf events, telling the outlet in 2019 that she loves ‘being able to support Brooks and watch him.’
