Stephen Gallacher's wife Helen Gallacher is most definitely his number one fan. Her whole Twitter existence is to support her husband's career and keep up with the goings on in European professional golf. At this point, she's pretty much locked down on Stephen's progress as a European Tour player. It's to the point where it's not really her Twitter page-- I mean, it is, but it's basically like a professional PR agent covering her client's every move and development. That's pretty cool, though. I mean, there's no way Stephen doesn't appreciate that kind of support. Support is kind of the name of the game for pro athletes' relationships.
Being a Scottish couple, Stephen Gallacher took his wife Helen to the Scottish Fashion Awards in support of her niece and was surprised to see they forgot to add her to their official magazine. That's not exactly big news for anyone but her, but it gives you some insight about some goings-on. Speaking of day-to-day, Stephen and Helen have a son named Jack who is fast becoming a respectable golfer in his own right. He's in his teens, and he finished primary school in 2013. He looks like the spitting image of his father, and I'm sure if you were to compare a picture of Stephen at age 14, you wouldn't be able to tell them apart. They also have a younger daughter whom is always up for a golf jaunt. They live on a fairly large plot of land complete with horses. Helen recently posted a picture of their newest horse, Buster, whom their daughter is a big fan of.
I wonder how often Helen travels with Stephen, as she frequently concentrates on tournaments that he's participated on in very warm and inviting places like Dubai. It's possible that she cherry-picks the nice destinations to accompany Stephen to and skips out on the not-so-exotic places. That's pure speculation though.

Joost Luiten's girlfriend Lyan Zielhorst has a very long history with him, as they've been together for at least eight years, but their most recent vacation outing was to fabulous Phuket. That's Thailand, for all you guys that aren't intimately acquainted with Far Eastern exotic vacation spots. Lyan was also a witness to the surprise doping test that Joost was submitted to as part of the Olympics' testing policies. He stated that he's all for the policy after he posted a picture of the glasses of urine they collected.
According to a shoddily translated website describing her Lyan's personal history, she's either finished with or finishing up on becoming a lawyer at the Tilburg University. I'm fairly certain she works for a company called Pon Holdings, and she has worked on a project to "increase sales with service parts." Or at least that's sort of what I can gather from her Dutch description page at Pon Holdings. Joost Luiten's girlfriend Lyan Zielhorst met him at a golf youth tournament at a place called Golf Club Almkreek. I'm of the opinion that anything that starts with a "c" should start with a "k" if it's written in Dutch, so they met at a golf klub.
Lyan is a golfer herself, and she comes fairly close to be a scratch golfer, as I understand it. She's said she does understand what it's like to be bummed out about having a bad round or being proud of having a very good one. In this way, it's a major plus to have a girlfriend who golfs. I will never stop advocating professional athletes get into relationships with other athletes. They almost always do better. Weirdly, if you're a woman who is or was an Olympic athlete, you almost always do well in a relationship with a professional athlete. Joost Luiten's girlfriend Lyan Zielhorst has already been with him for eight years, so that's a win.

Odell Beckham's girlfriend Sophie Campise is a sweet, young globetrotting beauty with a love for her mangy but snuggable dog Roo. Sophie really does have a striking face, and I'd be shocked if she hasn't done some professional modeling, but she was a serious athletic competitor in the good old sport of soccer.
Sophie attended Ursuline Academy in Dallas, Texas and was named an All-American Academic (whatever that is). Sophie was a freshman at the University of Texas in 2009, which at first I thought meant she must have met Odell after graduating around 2012 or 2013 (sometimes if you work your ass off in college you can do a three-year graduation. This is not the case, however, since Odell Beckham's girlfriend Sophie Campise has been with him since at least July of 2012-- when the first known photograph of him shows up in her Instagram account. She was still in college when they were dating, so I'm very curious how they met. Maybe she was just a friend of a friend of a friend or something. Also, it should be noted that Sophie transferred to the University of Alabama midway through her college career.
Sophie was a solid midfield starter from 2012 to 2013 at Alabama, and she graduated in 2013. That means she's been independent from school for less than two years. Since her hometown is Dallas, she frequently goes to all kinds of Texas-type activities like the Austin City Limits music festival. But by far the most impressive stuff she's posted on the net is her travel photos. This has included wrestling a baby tiger, visiting hyper-exotic places like Bali, hot springs in Singaraja, and some beautiful place called Seminyak. We've got to keep in mind that our girl is still only about 23 years old here. She's having one hell of a life so far. Of course, she's also making plenty of trips to New York City to see Odell play for the Giants. That's certainly a priority.
