Rickie Fowler has been in a couple notable relationships since he became a professional golfer, but not many were as popular as his ex-girlfriend, Alexis Randock.
The couple met and started dating in 2014, sharing in many heartfelt moments and posting them to their social media accounts.
During the 2015 Masters Par-3 Contest, Randock served as Fowler’s caddie and even grabbed the putter to try a shot on a hole. The two had many public moments on the golf course together.
But those wouldn’t last long, as the two reportedly split a little over one year later.
Here’s what you need to know:
1. Randock Is a Bikini Model
Randock’s has had a successful career working as a bikini model.
She started doing so in college and used her success to catapult it into various modeling opportunities across the nation.
At one point, she was signed by the Wilhelmina Models, a prominent modeling and talent agency based in Chicago, Miami, New York City Los Angeles and London.
The firm was founded in 1967 by a Dutch supermodel and has worked with a number of famous models of all walks: women, men, full-figured, fitness, children, entertainers and musicians, its “About Us” page on its website says.
Randock has also had a few other modeling gigs throughout her career through other agencies.
2. The Couple Reportedly Broke Up in 2016
According to a report from ClickOn Golf, Fowler and Randock broke up in 2016 for undisclosed reasons.
The split was never confirmed by either party, though it was pretty regular that Fowler would post pictures of him and Randock together on his Instagram page. But that hadn’t happened for a few months, and some people started to grow curious.
Shortly after the break up was reported, the New York Post reported that Fowler may have been the one to break up with Randock, leaving her to date Lauren “LB” Barr, a former contestant on the hit ABC reality show The Bachelor.
Fowler and LB were seen together at a few events are didn’t shy away from sharing those special moments together on social media.
The couple’s relationship was never confirmed, but it appeared at some point that LB and Fowler split. He was seen completely obliviously — and hilariously — in a photo having nobody to kiss as Team USA smooched their significant others at the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio.
3. Randock Went To Arizona State University in Tempe & Was Featured On a Bikini Calendar
Before dating Fowler and going on to her modeling career, Randock attended Arizona State University, AZ Central reported.
Randock studied communications at ASU and modeled for a local company that was known for its annual calendar. She was featured on Tempe12 when she was in college, appearing in the 2010 edition. In addition, shehas her own model page on the website.
After graduating from the school, Randock moved to NYC to pursue a modeling career. She said in an interview that the modeling industry can be you to maintain if you don’t work hard enough.
I work my butt off to be able to fully support myself in NYC, I’m out here grinding to live a nice life.
4. Randock’s Wardrobe at a Tournament Received Criticism
Randock received criticism from some people for the outfit she wore while watching Fowler play a golf tournament.
He was playing at The Players Championship in 2015, and Randock was nearby behind the ropes in the crowd. She was sporting a yellow top with short denim shorts.
It all worked out in the end, though. Fowler had the best finish in tournament history to win The Players and pocket a $1.8 million prize.
The two celebrated on the putting green with a kiss after Fowlers’ historic victory.
Prior to the victory, he hadn’t won a PGA Tour tournament since 2012.
Fowler posted a photo of himself and his girlfriend to his Facebook page of the win, but many comments lambasted her for not being dressed up proper enough for a golf tournament, the Sun Times reported.
One of the comments on the Facebook picture that received the most publicity was one from user Trey Williams. He was just one of the many to criticize Randock’s attire and request that she cover up next time.
Tell your girlfriend to put some clothes on and cover herself up when she is going to be live on national television. Be a roll model for young kids and don’t dress like a porn star. Sorry, but your agent should have done a better job and had her change her outfit because she and what little she was wearing took away from you, your win and accomplishment. Otherwise, great job and great shooting and great win!!
5. Fowler Was Once Taunted for Breaking Up with Randock
That was definitely the case when Fowler played at the tournament in 2016.
According to Larry Brown Sports, fans in the gallery at the annual event were mocking Fowler by screaming “Team Alexis” at him as he walked from the green to the next tee box, insinuating that they were on her side in the break-up.
The invested fans at the tournament made sense, since Randock did graduate from nearby ASU and ended up being well known for her modeling in the area.
