Latest Cool Coupling: Rickie Fowler and Allison Stokke

Rickie Fowler and Allison Stokke are a couple. Which means Rickie no longer has to go stag to Team USA functions.

You know who Allison Stokke is, don't you? Back in 2007, when she was a 17-year-old high school track and field athlete, some photos of her at a track meet were posted online. That's when the sports-slash-laddie blogosphere jumped into action: Dudes started noticing that Allison was pretty hot! Those track photos - she was a top high school pole vaulter - started showing up everywhere, and Allison, against her will, became a poster girl for sexy athletes-on-the-web.

She went on to a college career as a pole vaulter at the University of California and later turned pro. When her pro vaulting career ended, Stokke started doing YouTube videos on vaulting technique and became a fitness model for, among other brands, Nike, Athleta and Uniqlo. She also began working with GoPro on her videos.

And Rickie? It seems like only yesterday (it was 2014, actually) that we were writing a post headlined Say Hi to Alexis Randock, Rickie Fowler's Girlfriend. That relationship was over at least by the time of the 2016 Ryder Cup, where Fowler attended all the functions solo (and was photographed, in one famous image, alone in the middle of a circle of kissing couples).

Rickie and Allison first shared photos of themselves on social media in April 2017, each posting one image (without identifying or tagging the other):

In May, Fowler posted another image of the two together. Again, there was no naming or tagging of the woman in the image, but Fowler did acknowledge Allison was his new girlfriend by hashtagging the photo #rickfoundachick:

Only a handful of more images followed, but at least in the most recent ones they've tagged one another.

And other members of Rickie's circle of friends have even started referencing Allison. For example, here's an Instagram post showing Allison Stokke and friend-of-Rickie Michelle Wie frolicking together:

Seriously. The headline explains exactly what happened on social media today. First, Michelle Wie shared on Instagram this snap from SnapChat:

Wie captioned it thusly: "When that @niketraining HIIT workout just kills you... #snapchatvibes #Mondays"

It wasn't long before Michelle's buddy Danielle Kang chimed in with a comment about Wie's boobs: "Hahahahaha A cup looking like a B cup here 😂😂😂 what a wonder bra @themichellewie"

Leading Michelle to fire back: "@daniellekang omg I hate you...I am a B CUP! You are an A CUP!!! Your face is an A CUP"

Don't ever change, ladies, don't ever change.

A Hull fan has compiled a YouTube slideshow of Charley that includes all the bikini pics she's shared so far. Even better news: We're sure she'll be sharing more. And we'll update this post as needed with new additions below the video.

But for now:

Paige Spiranac Uses Her ... Um ... Boobs for This Trick Shot

Sometimes, you just have to get something off your chest. In this case, Paige Spiranac needed to get a trick shot off her chest. Literally.

Here's a clip of Paige practicing, then having a little fun with a trick shot that involves trapping the ball between her, um, bazooms before completing the trick:

Don't you just love her? We do!

Video: Ben Crenshaw Talks Putting

If you need putting tips, you can't go wrong by listening to what Ben Crenshaw has to say.

What I like about this video, in which the putting genius Crenshaw discusses his craft, is that Ben never talks about mechanics. He's asked to offer advice to recreational golfers, and the advice he offers is about feel, and nothing but feel.

Crenshaw talks about the way most amateur golfers grip the putter - too tightly, he says. "Hold the putter as a delicate instrument, because you're doing delicate work," Crenshaw says. And: "Back off the grip pressure just a little bit, that makes the putter head feel heavier and therefore it swings more."

He then switches to what he calls one of the best things he heard Harvey Penick say about putting, "Never look like anyone else when you're putting," and explains what that means.

And finally Crenshaw briefly touches on the speed vs. line debate, and you can probably guess what side of that debate Crenshaw is on.
