Who Is Graeme McDowell’s Wife?

Graeme McDowell may have been struggling on the course of late but he has unquestionable Ryder Cup experience which explains why Thomas Bjorn has named him as a vice-captain for the 2018 event at Le Golf National.

McDowell’s wife Kristin Stape will be in attendance as she has been for other Ryder Cup events.

Who Is Graeme McDowell’s Wife?

The couple married in the Bahamas in 2013 after McDowell proposed in 2012 on top of the seven-star Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai.

They have two children together called Vale Esme and Wills Edson, and Stape has another child from a previous relationship.

Stape and McDowell met in 2010 when McDowell was redesigning his home in Lake Nona, Florida. The interior designer hired to do the work was Stape.

She used to have a website called kristinstapedesign.com but it has been inactive for a while now.

Stape is a Florida native so may be torn as to who she wants to win the Ryder Cup once again. If past events are anything to go by though, she will be supporting her husbands team as he takes up his vice-captaincy duties for Europe.

McDowell last played in the Ryder Cup in 2014, a victory in Gleneagles. His other three appearances came in 2008, a narrow loss at Valhalla, and then 2010 at Celtic Manor and 2012 at Medinah.

McDowell is best remembered for his heroics in 2010, where the contest came down to the wire in the singles between himself and Hunter Mahan. Heading to the 16th, McDowell holed a brilliant birdie putt which extended his lead. Hunter Mahan then famously fluffed his chip on the 17th and Europe had secured the Cup by 14.5 points to 13.5.
