Pro golfer Patrick Cantlay got engaged to Nikki Guidish in September 2022
Patrick Cantlay found his perfect match in Nikki Guidish.
Since going public with their relationship in 2021 at the Memorial Tournament, Guidish has become a regular attendee at golf tournaments and PGA outings.
The couple got engaged in September 2022 during a trip to Napa, California. Guidish shared the news and a photo of her diamond ring on Instagram.
When she's not supporting the pro golfer, Guidish regularly shares life updates with her nearly 23,000 Instagram followers, from her time spent hanging out with the wives of other PGA stars to working as a pharmacist in Florida.
So who is Patrick Cantlay's fiancée? Here's everything to know about Nikki Guidish.
She is a pharmacist
Guidish graduated in 2018 from the University of South Florida with her Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) degree. After graduation, she began working as a pharmacist for Publix, and celebrated two years with the company in April 2020.
In July 2020, she started working as a pharmacist in charge at Palm Beach Pharmaceuticals, per her LinkedIn. The company posted a special shout-out to their lead pharmacist on Instagram in March 2021, highlighting Guidish's "passion for medicine, science and health."
“We are proud to have such a smart and knowledgeable Pharmacist who is always going above and beyond to help ensure that our customers feel comfortable with the medication they are prescribed,” they wrote.
She is a former fitness model
Before starting her career in medicine, Guidish worked as a fitness model for Tony Little products sold on HSN. She also competed in various bodybuilding competitions between 2014 and 2016, and even appeared on a cover for South Tampa Magazine.
She and Cantlay made their public debut in 2021
Guidish and Cantlay made their relationship public — and social media official — in June 2021. She shared a series of photos on Instagram from the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio, along with the caption: “Nothing short of a memorable weekend.”
The event marked Cantlay’s fourth PGA Tour win and second Memorial Tournament title after a playoff victory over Collin Morikawa.
Following Cantlay’s win, he and Guidish posed on the course with golf legend Jack Nicklaus, who founded the Memorial Tournament and awarded Cantlay his trophy.
They got engaged in September 2022
Cantlay and Guidish got engaged on Sept. 3, 2022, in Napa, California. The couple were spending the day wine tasting with fellow PGA Tour golfer Xander Schauffele and his wife Maya Lowe when Cantlay popped the question with a giant diamond ring.
Guidish revealed the happy news two days later while celebrating with Cantlay, Schauffele, Lowe and another couple. She posted a series of photos of the group along with one snap of her and Cantlay, where she proudly held up her new ring.
For his part, the pro golfer waited a bit to share the news with followers, posting a carousel of images on Instagram a few weeks later with the caption, "9.3.22."
She shares a dog with Cantlay
Cantlay and Guidish have a dog together, Mav. He frequently makes appearances on the couple’s Instagram accounts, and has even joined his golfer dad on the green.
She is Cantlay's biggest supporter
Though the couple have been private about their relationship, Guidish takes the opportunity to celebrate her fiancé and support him in his career whenever she can.
She was there to give him a kiss when he won the FedEx Cup and the Tour Championship in September 2021, a victory that earned him a $15 million bonus. To mark the accomplishment, Guidish shared a series of photos from Cantlay's golf year on Instagram, captioning it, “What a season."
She's close with the wives of other pro golfers
Guidish often documents her friendships with the significant others of her fiancé's fellow golfers on Instagram. During the 2021 Ryder Cup in Wisconsin, she posed at a barn dinner with Collin Morikawa's wife, Katherine, Scottie Scheffler's wife, Meredith, and Zach Johnson's wife, Kim, among others. "Incredible day with incredible people," she captioned a series of photos.
Guidish and Cantlay appear to be particularly close with Schauffele and Lowe. In addition to celebrating their engagement with the fellow golf couple, the foursome also rang in 2023 together. "Starting off 2023 with some of our favs 🎉🥰23❤️🥳," Guidish wrote alongside a photo carousel from their New Year's trip.
In September 2023, Guidish traveled to Rome with Cantlay for the Ryder Cup. The wives, fiancéés and girlfriends of U.S. golfers were sponsored by Ralph Lauren and required to wear matching outfits to the opening ceremonies and each golf match. The exception was formal night, where the women were able to put their individual styles on display. Cantlay, who dazzled in a plunging, silver gown, shared photos from the luxurious evening on Instagram.
