Patrick Cantlay announces engagement to girlfriend Nikki Guidish

Patrick Cantlay has been a busy man the past month.

He successfully defended his title at the BMW Championship at Wilmington Country Club in the penultimate event of the PGA Tour’s 2021-22 season. He wrapped up his eighth season on Tour with a T-7 at the Tour Championship, and he finished with two wins on the season.

Yet his biggest victory didn’t come on the course.

Cantlay and his girlfriend, Nikki Guidish, announced their engagement on social media Monday. Cantlay popped the question in Napa, California, where the couple was on vacation along with Cantlay’s good friend Xander Schauffele and his wife, Maya.

In 20 starts on the PGA Tour last season, Cantlay recorded 12 top-10 finishes and earned $9,369,605, missing only two cuts. He and Schauffele will be back in action in two weeks at the Presidents Cup in Charlotte at Quail Hollow Club.
