Aaron Hicks is still looking for his first ring with the Yankees, but his (former) girlfriend is no longer looking for a ring from him.

Cheyenne Woods, the professional golfer and niece of Tiger Woods, announced on Instagram last week that she was engaged to the Yankees midfielder.

“YESSS forever with my best friend and mine [heart]“She wrote on the Instagram post on October 21st. Hicks replied, “You will have mine forever [heart]. “

Woods and Hicks first met in early 2020 and started dating in the spring after interviewing him for her podcast, Birdies Not BS.

Woods, a former Wake Forest star and Ladies European Tour winner, has played in five LPGA events this season and made two Symetra Tour starts this year. She has also done some coverage and analysis on the course for Golf Channel. In January, Woods was the caddy for Hicks, who competed in the celebrity portion of the LPGA’s Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions.

That same month, at the Silverleaf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona, Hicks drilled a 304-yard hole-in-one on a par-4 with a 3-wood that Woods got on video. He grew up playing golf but switched to baseball as a teenager.

32-year-old Hicks enters the fourth year of a seven-year $ 70 million deal with the Yankees. After the 2015 season, he was traded to New York by the Minnesota Twins. Last year, Hicks played 32 games before ending his season with wrist surgery in May.
