NY Yankees’ Outcast, LPGA Tour Golfer Woods Get Engaged
On May 30th, 2021, Aaron Hicks was placed on the 60-day injured list by the New York Yankees. Ironically enough, the last time I thought about Aaron Hicks, was also May 30th, 2021.
Contrary to popular belief, the New York Yankees' outfielder is alive the whole time, and was also dating Cheyenne Woods the entire time. This is the Cheyenne Woods that plays golf professionally, and that you've seen on coverage of Capital One's The Match broadcasts on TNT, and the Cheyenne Woods that is the niece of golf legend, Tiger Woods.
It appears that Hicks' wrist is healing, because he was able to muster the strength to get down on one knee, twist his wrist, and do this.
The pair got engaged!
Congratulations to Aaron and Cheyenne!
Aaron Met Cheyenne While Being Interviewed for Her Podcast
Yes, this is true. Love can really develop on the microphone.
According to a story posted about the announcement by The New York Post, the duo first met when Hicks was a guest on Woods' "Birdies Not BS" podcast. This happened in early 2020, and and began dating in the spring of that same year. After a year and a half of dating (ish, based on the dates given), Hicks popped the question.
Reports are saying that she indeed did say yes.
Woods is a Professional Golfer and Television Personality
After graduating from Wake Forest, Cheyenne Woods turned professional, and has been on the LPGA tour since then. According to The Daytona Beach News Journal, Woods' first professional victory came at the SunCoast Ladies Series in late summer 2012.
Woods has two professional wins in her career, and is a member of the LPGA and Ladies European Tour. She played in the U.S. Women's Open this year for the first time since 2018.
Hicks Has Played for the New York Yankees Since 2016
After playing for the Minnesota Twins for three seasons, Aaron Hicks was traded to the New York Yankees in the 2015 offseason, making his debut with the team in 2016. Hicks had breakout years in 2017 and 2018 respectively. In 2017, he hit .266 with 15 home runs and 52 runs batted in. In 2018, meanwhile, he hit 27 home runs and drove in 79 runs batted in.
His last three campaigns have all been marred by injury, and he has yet to re-establish himself as an everyday player in the New York outfield.
