"My person for life," Wie wrote for the Instagram caption. She also used the hashtag "#WieGoesWest."

Wie also posted several messages to her Instagram story, showing well-wishers congratulating the couple. One of the messages came from fellow golfer Justin Thomas.

Wie, 20, watched her 2018 season end with a right hand injury. She had surgery in October. The five-time LPGA champion tied for 23rd at Honda LPGA Thailand 2019 in February, her only tournament this season.

She withdrew from the HSBC Women's World Championship during the first round on Feb. 28 in Singapore.
