Jordan and Erin

Proposal Ideas The Masters/Augusta Georgia

How We Met

We met on Bumble. Both of us had bad luck dating online in the past but decided to give it one more shot. We matched and after a one time renew, Erin messaged me and we went out to a movie and then drinks afterward.

Erin must’ve really liked me because she’s not a big movie person and I later found out she thought going to a movie for a first date was dumb. But from there we hung out two days later, again watching movies. And even after I moved from Des Moines to Sioux City, we stayed together because I know I couldn’t let this one go.

How They Asked

Erin won The Master’s lottery about 6 months into us dating in 2017 so we knew we were going for a while as the tournament wasn’t until April of 2018. I had originally planned on proposing in the summer of 2018, but since we’re both BIG golfers, I knew this would be a once in a lifetime question to ask at a once in a lifetime place.

We flew down to Augusta and went to the Wednesday practice round and Par 3 contest. We got there around 630AM to walk the course and get spots for the Par 3 contest. Needless to say, the ring was burning a hole in my pocket all day long.

At the end of the day, I suggested we head over to Magnolia Lane so we could get a picture in front of the iconic clubhouse. Our friends Travis and Sarah were with us and I had already filled them in on my plan. As we got to the front of the line, I passed off my camera to Travis and had him tell The Masters photographer what was about to happen unbeknownst to Erin.

The photographer took a few pictures and then when we were done, Erin wanted a group picture. But before that could happen, I took her hands and told her how much I loved her and how I couldn’t have picked a better place to ask my forever best ball partner to marry me.

It couldn’t have been more perfect. She said yes and was overcome with emotion as we received a nice golf clap from the many onlookers. Any trip to The Masters is special, but this trip was unforgettable thanks to a proposal “unlike any other”. We had local news coverage too. Watch it here.

We were married in May of 2019 and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
