Graeme McDowell’s wife-to-be Kristin Stape caddied for him
Rory McIlroy wasn’t the only golfer to have his girlfriend caddie for him at the Masters Par-3 Contest Wednesday. Countryman Graeme McDowell dressed up his fiancee (or as he called it, “wife-to-be”) Kristin Stape in the white boiler outfit and had her serve as his caddie.
“Like Rory, overachieving I think is the name of the game,” McDowell said to ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi as a compliment to Stape’s good looks.
Stape was asked for her thoughts on the course at Augusta.
“I think it’s absolutely spectacular. Last year when I came it was just mesmerizing and something Graeme couldn’t put into words until I was able to come. I think this is going to give me a whole other perspective on the place, so I’m very excited,” said Stape.
McDowell and Stape became engaged last year after he proposed to her on a helipad on top of a hotel in Dubai. The two met when McDowell contacted her interior design business to decorate his Orlando home.
LBS writer Steve DelVecchio listed McDowell as one of his serious contenders when it came to his 2013 Masters predictions.
