Golfer Aaron Wise won his first-career PGA Tour event on Sunday, winning the AT&T Byron Nelson by three strokes over Marc Leishman. He took home a cool $1.38 million in the process.
When it came time to celebrate his career milestone, Wise had to settle for a hug rather than a post-win kiss. The exchange – and all of its awkwardness – quickly made rounds on Twitter after playing out on live TV.
But no, Wise did not appear to be friend-zoned in the post-win moment. The woman who greeted him was his girlfriend and fellow University of Oregon athlete, Reagan Trussell.
He wrote last year in an Instagram photo:
Can’t believe i get to call this girl mine
So while we don’t know why Wise’s kiss was awkwardly rejected (maybe one of them was sick or perhaps she’s strictly against PDA), he wasn’t trying to break through the friend zone on the thrill of his Byron Nelson victory.
