Ben and Julie Ann Crenshaw

Ben married his second wife, Julie Ann, in 1985 (here they celebrate Ben’s win at the 1988 Doral Open). They have three daughters.

Greg and Laura Norman

The Shark married Laura Andrassy, a flight attendant, in 1981, and the couple divorced in 2006. Norman then married tennis Hall of Famer Chris Evert in 2008 and they divorced a year later. Norman got married for the third time in November 2010, to interior designer Kirsten Kutner.

Tom and Linda Watson

Tom and Linda (here celebrating his 1980 British Open win) were high school sweethearts and were married for 25 years before divorcing in 1997.

Tom and Christy Kite

Kite was the Tour’s leading money winner in 1981 and 1989. He and his wife celebrated Tom’s only major title at the 1992 U.S. Open. The couple has one daughter and two sons.

Ray and Maria Floyd

The Floyds (celebrating Ray’s victory at the 1986 U.S. Open) were married in 1973 and have three children.

Nick Faldo and Gill Bennett

Faldo and Bennett were married in 1986 and had three children together before divorcing in 1995, when Faldo began a relationship with 20-year-old golfing student Brenna Cepelak

Nick Faldo and Brenna Cepalak

Cepalak (shown here with Faldo at a Miami Heat game) is technically not an 80s WAG, because she began dating the golfer in 1995 when Faldo was still married to Bennett. But Brenna makes the list for her newsworthiness, as she famously smashed Faldo’s Porsche with a 9-iron when the golfer ended their relationship in 1999. Faldo had left Cepalak for his future third wife, Valerie Bercher.

Nancy Lopez and Ray Knight

Technically, Ray Knight would be a HAB (Husbands and Boyfriends), but we include him here because the former Major League Baseball player occasionally caddied for his Hall of Fame wife, Nancy Lopez
