Female golfer gets 18th green marriage proposal

Caddie proposes to golfer Asheligh Simon at Ladies European Tour event in Dubai – and she says yes

DUBAI, UAE (DECEMBER 12, 2015) (UCOM) – Golfer Ashleigh Simon may have been looking forward to putting her feet up in the clubhouse after a forgettable final day at the Dubai Open – but instead she was celebrating after her caddie got down on one knee and asked her to marry him.

The 26-year-old South African finished 63rd on Sunday at the Ladies European Tour event after firing a 76, which included a double bogey at the last.

But her indifferent form didn’t put off caddie David Buhai, who whipped out a diamond ring after Simon had sunk her final putt and also arranged for the message ‘Ashleigh, Will you marry me?’ to be flashed on one of the advertising hoardings.

And she didn’t take long to say yes, much to the delight of those watching.

A pro since turning 18 in 2007, Simon has had four career wins.
