Corey Conners’ wife is Malory Conners nee Martin. Malory began a viral sensation after her “wine-in-hand” reaction to her husband’s victory at the Valero Texas Open. Corey’s win in San Antonio saw him sneak into the U.S. Masters 2019 just four days before the tournament began in Augusta. The couple was married in October 2018 in Kitchener, Ontario. Both are from the area. The ceremony was held at the Hacienda Sarria in front of 100 guests. Fellow golf pro-Taylor Pendrith served as Corey’s best man at the wedding.
Conners has appeared in the Masters before, in 2015, as an amateur.

Golf World reported in the run-up to the Masters that executives with Valero flew Corey and Malory to August immediately after the open in Texas.
