Who is Open 2023 winner Brian Harman's wife Kelly Van Slyke and do they have children? | The Sun

BRIAN HARMAN has won his first-ever golf major at this year's Open after a stunning performance at Hoylake.

The American had to fend off the likes of Masters champion Jon Rahm and Rory McIlroy to claim the huge $3million prize.

Harman's best finish at a major prior to his Claret Jug win was a second-place finish at the 2017 US Open.

His doting wife, Kelly Van Slyke, was by his side throughout the gruelling four-day tournament at Royal Liverpool.

But just what do we know about Harman's family wife and his wife Kelly?

Who is Kelly Van Slyke?

Van Slyke was born in New York and eventually went on to get her degree in Biology in 2007.

She met Harman several years after while she worked as a pilates instructor.

Harman now works as a radiation therapist.

Van Slyke and Harman got engaged in 2014 after the latter planned a proposal where his beau would find the ring in the pocket of her new trousers.

I videotaped the whole thing, her trying on the pants and finding the ring. It was awesome," Harman said.

The couple have kept their relationship relatively private and there aren't many photos of the pair on social media.

The pair were close to getting married on November 2014 but had to postpone things because of a college football game.

Harman said: “I told her people won’t come to our wedding. If you want all the people that we like to come don’t do it on a Georgia football weekend.”

They eventually tied the knot a month later and in 2016, Harman and Van Slyke welcomed a daughter, Copper Marie, into the world.

In 2019, they welcomed their son Walter before adding a third child, Jack, soon after.
