25-year-old German golfer Martin Kaymer won the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits Sunday after defeating Bubba Watson in a three-hole playoff. The victory has been overshadowed a bit by the controversial ruling that Dustin Johnson grounded his club while technically in a bunker on the 18th hole, preventing him from entering into a three-way playoff with Kaymer and Watson.
But that isn’t the only overshadowing that took place on Sunday! The famously ornate Wanamaker Trophy that Kaymer won was easily overshadowed by his trophy girlfriend, Allison Micheletti! Don’t believe me? Check out her amazing pair of 3-irons:
A basic google search for Allison Micheletti turns up a number of results for an amateur golfer that was a redshirt freshman at Furman University in South Carolina during 2006-2007. Here’s her photo from the Furman page followed by a photo taken of her at The PGA Championship Sunday:
If she didn’t (doesn’t?) play golf at Furman then she plays something somewhere because those are some intimidatingly athletic calves! Here are some more photos of “Wanamaker my trophy wife” Allison Micheletti and her beau Martin Kaymer celebrating his victory:
[Note – The Reuters images identify Allison as “Martin Kaymer’s wife Rina.” I have no idea what that’s about. Anyone out there know if Martin Kaymer was/is married to someone named Rina?] [UPDATE – Thanks to a couple commenters who pointed out that Rina is his mother’s name.]
