    Korean-American golfer Michelle Wie, who plays on the U.S. LPGA Tour, tied the knot on Saturday.

    The U.S.-based Golf Channel on Sunday reported that Wie got married to Jonnie West at a private home in Beverly Hills, California. Wie announced her engagement in March, posting a picture on her Instagram account of West proposing to her on bended knee.

    West is the director of basketball operations for the Golden State Warriors in the National Basketball Association, and the son of NBA legend Jerry West.

    Jerry West was selected as an NBA All Star 14 times while playing for the Los Angeles Lakers from 1960 to 1974. The NBA's logo is based on his silhouette.

    Warriors star Stephen Curry and LPGA golfers Danielle Kang and Jessica Korda were among the guests at the wedding.

    After the KPMG Women's PGA Championship in June, Wie said she would sit out the remainder of this year's events due to an injury.
