Mike Weir dating former Bachelor contestant


Mike Weir is making headlines in "The Bachelor" world.

Yes, you read that right, "The Bachelor," as in ABC’s longstanding dating reality television show.

The former Masters and eight-time PGA Tour champion recently posted a photo on Instagram of him and 35-year-old former Bachelor contestant, Michelle Money.

Money is a hairstylist turned reality star who began her journey with "The Bachelor" franchise as a contestant on season 15. After losing out on love she became a contestant on spinoff shows "Bachelor Pad" and "Bachelor in Paradise" as well as a separate reality show called "Marriage Bootcamp." She also recently opened up to People Magazine about placing her son up for adoption when she was 15.

If you’re unfamiliar with Money, don’t worry, chances are many Bachelor fans don’t know who Weir is either.

Since being associated with the television personality, Weir has stepped into the national spotlight dominated by entertainment and pop culture outlets and women eager to learn more about the low-key pro golfer.

Weir and Money both live in Utah and have children from previous marriages.

After a slow start this season (Weir has missed the cut in eight out of the nine events played), Michelle could be just the trick to help the pro get back on track.

And if things do work out, Weir better have a rose ready.
