Morgan Pressel, the Boca Raton golfer who won her first major professional tournament at 17, was quietly married last night at The Breakers in Palm Beach. (Check her marriage license below)
Pressel, now 24, and long-time boyfriend Andy Bush were hitched during a traditional Jewish ceremony, a spywitness told Gossip Extra.
“I don’t want to talk about it, now is really a bad time,” Pressel said when reached in her hotel room early this morning.
Pressel met Bush, who works for the sports marketing firm Octagon, in 2007 at a golf tournament in Oklahoma. He recently moved to Boca Raton, from the 212, after their engagement.
Last night, about 450 people filled up the resort’s gilded Mediterranean Room for the post-nuptials feast.
The wedding’s dominant color was purple. Pressel’s bride’s maids included LPGAers Paula Creamer, Cristie Kerr, Nicole Castrale and Meaghan Francella, and Pressel’s younger sister Madison.

Pressel burst onto women’s golfing in her mid-teens. She lost the U.S. Women’s Open by two strokes in 2005 then won the Kraft Nabisco Championship.
She’s now ranked 38 in the world, with career earnings topping $4 million.
