Michelle Wie is officially off the market. Using the #WieGoesWest, the five-time LPGA Tour champion and 2014 U.S. Women’s Open champion announced on Instagram on Sunday night that she said yes to Jonnie West, a Golden State Warriors executive and the son of NBA legend Jerry West.

After sharing the exciting news with her followers, Wie also posted a screengrab of her FaceTime call with fellow golf pro Thomas, 25, who took credit for setting the couple up.

“Can definitely say this set up went as well as possible! Happy for you two love birds,” Thomas wrote on his own Instagram story, to which Wie replied, “You should start a matchmaking business.”

Wie last participated in February’s HSBC Women’s Champions, but withdrew due to injury.

The 29-year-old is in the midst of a comeback, but it’s not off to the best start. Wie withdrew from last month’s HSBC Women’s World Championship after 14 holes due to a wrist injury. She was 10 over.

She returned to LPGA competition in February after finally recovering from a fractured right hand suffered in a car accident two years ago.
