Stacy Lewis is engaged.

Lewis, 30, the top-ranked American professional in the women’s game, said yes during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend when University of Houston women’s golf coach Gerrod Chadwell asked her to marry him, according to Golfweek.

They’ve been dating for about a year, and Chadwell popped the question when Lewis was giving him a tour of the University of Arkansas campus while there for a football game. She’s an Arkansas graduate and a member of the school’s Hall of Fame.

Lewis told Golfweek that Chadwell made her six second-place finishes in a winless year more bearable.

“Honestly, I think he helped me get through it all,” Lewis told the magazine. “Just having something good in my life when I came off the golf course every day.”
