Golfer Michelle Wie and Warriors exec Jonnie West marry in star-studded ceremony

Golfer Michelle Wie and Warriors director of basketball operations Jonnie West tied the knot in a lavish Beverly Hills ceremony over the weekend.

West, who is the son of Lakers legend Jerry, and the former Stanford star brought the athletic A-list to the reception, which was hosted at a private home. Stephen Curry was reportedly in attendance, as were LPGA pros Danielle Kang, Jessica Korda, Marina Alex, Alison Lee and Alison Walshe.

They also had a sports touch in their attire: West wore a pair of custom-made pink-and-black Nikes with his tux.

The pair went public with their relationship in January, and West proposed on the Lyon Street Steps in San Francisco in March. The Golf Channel reports the pair plan to make their home in San Francisco, where West is based with the team.

Wie turned pro as a 15-year-old and later attended Stanford University, although she was not eligible for the golf team there because of her professional status. She graduated Stanford in 2012.

After attending West Virginia, West was hired as the director of basketball operations and advance scout for the Warriors’ G-League affiliate in Santa Cruz. In 2013, he was promoted to associate general manager before becoming the Warriors’ director of player programs in 2015.

In 2017, he was promoted to director of basketball operations.

Wie has been fighting injuries for the past few years. In 2017, she was in a car accident that hurt her wrist and, despite surgery, her pain has not abated. In late June, Wie announced on Instagram she was taking off the rest of the season to rest and heal.

“After doing everything I could to play this year, I have made the decision to take the rest of the year off from competitive golf. My team and I believe that this will give me the best chance to finally get healthy,” she wrote.
