G-Mac, 33 and from Portrush, took to Twitter to thank well-wishers once the news emerged.

Alongside a picture of the happy couple sipping champagne, he declared he was very excited about the engagement and added of his wife-to-be: "She's an amazing girl."

Among those from the golfing world who added their congratulations and received G-Mac's thanks were 'DC OBE', 'numero dos' and 'Keegs' - or Darren Clarke, Luke Donald and Keegan Bradley.

Darren, who was introduced to his wife Alison by Graeme, said he was "very happy" for the couple.

The girlfriend of their fellow Northern Ireland golfer Rory McIlroy, tennis player Caroline Wozniacki, also added her congratulations.

That prompted G-Mac to response: "You next!"

With Graeme's big news coming as Darren received an OBE from the Queen for his services to sport, Rory, it's over to you ...
