After golf god Rickie Fowler proposed to Allison Stokke on a Southampton beach (on National Best Friends Day, no less), we hear the couple toasted their engagement Sunday night at an intimate US Open kickoff party.
The bash was hosted by Discovery Land Company’s Mike Meldman at Dune Deck Beach Club in Westhampton Beach, LI.
Fowler and Meldman are close pals: They even dressed as each other at a starry Casamigos Halloween party in 2015.
For the party, “Mike had singer Kelley James serenade the newly engaged couple,” said a spy. James “followed with one of his famous freestyle raps, about Rickie and Justin Thomas’ friendship.”
Thomas is a fellow PGA golfer who, it turns out, was the photographer behind the picture of Fowler proposing to Stokke on the beach that the couple tweeted to break the news.
Our golf source said: “Justin and Rickie were by each other’s side the whole night, still casual and relaxed heading into the biggest tournament of the year. The top contenders hung out and laughed with friends, almost as though there was no pressure.”
Page Six first revealed that Fowler was dating Stokke last year.
The US Open starts at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club on Tuesday.
Fowler posted online of the weekend proposal: “Today is National Best Friend Day so I wanted to lock mine down . . . I WON!!” Thomas added: “Sorry ladies??? Sorry guys!!! Rick out kicked his coverage!”
