Kevin McAlpine and Anna Nordqvist’s Relationship
Swedish golfer Anna Nordqvist, who turned pro in 2008, first posted about her Scottish boyfriend in 2017. It’s unknown how Nordqvist and McAlpine met and began dating.
The couple got engaged on December 13, 2018. They had set July 11, 2020, as their wedding date, and Nordqvist shared glimpses of the wedding planning on her Instagram.
The COVID-19 pandemic not only suspended golf and other sporting league events last year, but also forced the longtime pair to postpone their wedding. A few weeks ago, the LPGA star’s social media activity indicated that she and McAlpine are married.
Fans speculate that they got married mid-2021, before Nordqvist dove into a very busy season. While she travels between tournaments, she has been missing McAlpine as she reveals on her posts.
