While it is well known that women play a strong supportive role behind the scenes for their husbands, it is not often that you see these women out and about with their husbands, urging them to succeed in their endeavors. One person who has succeeded in this is Justine Karain, the gorgeous wife of professional golfer Patrick Reed, who once worked as his caddie and played the role of coach for him. Read on to learn more about her other achievements and her family.
Justine Karain Bio (Age)
On December 19, 1986, Justine Karain was born in Houston, Texas, United States of America, the daughter of Munther and Janet Kessler Karain. Although no details about her parents and family are known, it is said that she comes from a wealthy family.
Just as details about her family are not available, it is also not known where she received her early education. However, it is known that Karain has been an athlete since her time at Klein Forest High School. In high school, she was an incredible swimmer and soccer player who occasionally played golf and encouraged and supported the formation of a women’s golf team. She later attended Louisiana State University and Our Lady of the Lake College in Los Angeles, where she qualified for two bachelor’s degrees: Nursing at the first institution and Healthcare Administration at the second.
Justine Karain first met her husband Patrick Reed at Augusta State University, where he had transferred from the University of Georgia. The couple met for a time before Reed proposed on January 9, 2012, the same night that their beloved Louisiana State University soccer team played in the national title game. A few months later, on December 21, 2012, they exchanged vows. At that time, she decided to leave nursing and work as a caddie to stay close to her husband.
Karain worked as a caddie for her husband for two years before she gave up the role because of her pregnancy. The couple then welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Windsor Wells, born May 22, 2014, and three years later they added another member to their family, a son named Barrett Benjamin, born December 6, 2017.
Other Facts about Patrick Reed’s Wife
She Is Not Close To Her In-Laws
While Justine Karain’s parents are very close to her and her husband and often accompany him on his travels, Reed’s parents are alienated from the couple because they were not even invited to the wedding.
According to reports, the feud came about after Reed’s parents objected to their son Karain, who is four years older than him, marrying. They reportedly felt that the couple, and their son, in particular, were too young at the time to be legally bound. In another report, Reed’s parents’ aversion to Karain stems from their social media posts about her mental and physical abuse of the golfer. She is said to have said that they regarded him only as their “food stamp”.
Her Brother Took Over as Caddie for her Husband
As mentioned above, Justine Karain stopped working as her husband’s caddie after she became pregnant. The position vacated by the former high school athlete was then filled by her brother Kessler Karain, who had no experience in this role. Kessler reportedly left his job in medical sales to take on the role he enjoyed and learned more about overtime. Since then, he has overseen his brother-in-law’s first major win at the 2018 Masters Tournament, where Reed had the chance to be the first player in the tournament’s history to complete four rounds in the 1960s, but still managed to score a 71.
If you stand side by side with her husband, who is about 6 feet (1.83 m) tall, you can see that Justine Karain is not the tallest person you would ever meet, because she is 5 feet 1 inch tall, shorter than the average American woman, who is 5 feet 4 inches (162.5 cm) tall. Her weight and other body measurements are not known.
Salary and Net Worth
Considering that Justine Karain once worked as a nurse, she probably took home almost $70,000 a year, which is the average annual salary of a nurse. After giving up her nursing career to caddie for her husband, it is speculated that she earned about $2,000 a week, which is also the average salary of a caddie. From all this, it is clear that Karain is doing well, although the exact amount of her net worth has not yet been calculated. Her husband, however, has an estimated net worth of about $9 million.
