The Austrian golfer has won the 2022 Honda Classic, the first PGA Tour title of his career. Let’s find out more about Sepp Straka’s wife, Paige Dean Straka, after she flew out to celebrate with him.

On Sunday (27 February 2022), Sepp Straka become the first Austrian to win a PGA Tour title. He shot a final-round 66 to claim victory at the 2022 Honda Classic, beating Shane Lowry by one shot.

“Hanging in there,” Straka told NBC when asked how he would remember the event. “The third round I definitely didn’t have my best stuff. I just hung in there and ground out a good round. I hit the ball really nice today and really took advantage.”

Straka finished in the top 20 at the Farmers Insurance Open at Torrey Pines recently and the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club. With the win, he’s now qualified for the Masters.

Sepp Straka’s wife joined him in Florida to celebrate

It was a family affair for the Austrian as Sepp Straka’s wife, Paige, flew out on Saturday to join his mother and other family.

“I didn’t even know Paige was coming down,” Straka told the CBS broadcast. “So this morning, when I walked down the putting green and saw her there. It was just great to have all of them here to celebrate with me.”

Sepp and Paige married last year

Straka and Paige Dean Straka got engaged in December 2020 and tied the knot in September 2021. At the time of their engagement, Sepp wrote: “She said yes! I’m lucky I get to spend the rest of my life with you @katiepaigeau.”

Revealing how they met, Sepp said (via Colorbox photography): “We met at the UGA/Auburn game in Auburn. I have a good friend who went to Auburn, so I went to the game with him and his then girlfriend, now wife, was friends with Paige. We really hit it off after the game even though she was being pretty vocal about Auburn winning. Thankfully, that’s the last time Auburn has beaten Georgia, so I haven’t had to hear it since!”

The golfer also posted a picture of the happy couple on their big day with the caption: “What an amazing weekend! Thank you to all our family and friends that made this such a special weekend. We’re truly blessed to have y’all.”

Paige on Instagram

Sepp has shared lots of snaps of his wife Paige on Instagram. In September 2020, he posted a message on her birthday, which read: “Happy birthday, Paige! I hope everyone makes you feel as special today as you are.”

Paige is on Instagram @katiepaigeau where she has 1,638 followers and 612 posts. However, her account is currently set to private.

According to Paige, her and Sepp: “Love eating yummy food/exploring new restaurants, entertaining friends with dinner and games, spending time with each other’s families and travelling. Sepp’s job takes him to some pretty cool places, and I’m happy to tag along when I can!”
