Golfer Harto Andreas asks girlfriend Louise De Fries to marry him at Made in Denmark golf event
Copenhagen: Danish golfer Andreas Harto was heading for a missed cut at the Made in Denmark tournament on Friday, but he was still celebrating after proposing to girlfriend Louise De Fries on the 16th green at the Himmerland Golf and Spa Resort in Aalborg.

The 27-year-old made a birdie, then gestured to his stunned girlfriend who was watching from the sidelines and got down on one knee before plucking a jewellery box from his pocket.
The couple embraced on the green much to the delight of the packed gallery. Harto, however, was not able to tempt Lady Luck to also smile on him as he finished two rounds on five over par and missed the cut.

"I'm a lucky man," the bearded Harto told reporters, even though he had missed the cut by carding a 74 for a five-over total of 147, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
"The crowd was going crazy and we loved it. I don't know how I hit that tee shot or made that putt. I was crying and she was crying.

I know she might think I'm a bit silly but it's going to be a great memory for us as we grow older," added Harto who has yet to record a Tour win.
