Gerina Piller changed her name back to Gerina Mendoza on her Instagram. People then began questioning her relationship with her husband and if they were now divorced.
The golfer, who married Martin Piller in January 2011, has known him since November 2009. They first met at a NASCAR event at Texas Motor Speedway, Fort Worth.
Gerina and Martin now have a baby together, who turned four this May. She has always wanted her husband to be as involved as possible in raising the child. They are now living in Flower Mound, Texas.
Gerina Piller Name Change Back To Mendoza
Gerina Piller changed her name to Mendoza only on her Instagram. Still, she has not updated a thing on her Twitter. She still goes by the name @GerinaPiller on the platform. Her full name is Gerina Michelle Mendoza Piller.
Although she has changed her name to Mendoza, there is no official statement by the couple regarding their split or dispute. Instead, Gerina had talked to LPGA about life in her home with her husband, as he also shares the same profession.
Mendoza might have changed her name back to her maiden name as an appreciation to her parents and family.
Is Gerina Piller Still Married? Update On Divorce
Yes, Gerina Piller is still married to Martin Piller, an American professional golfer. The 37-year-old PGA tour competitor tied the knot with Mendoza back in 2011. However, Gerina has changed her last name from Piller to Mendoza, speculating that the pair are divorcing.
Both the pro athletes are still in the tournament. Gerina is attending the LPGA tour, and Martin is on PGA. Currently, they are competing with other players and are giving their best to bag the victory.
Thus, there could be some situation between the pair. However, no situation or news could state if the couple is parting ways.
Gerina Piller And Martin Piller Relationship
It was not a love at first sight for Mendoza and Piller. When they first met, Martin had little idea about who she was. He only knew that she was really good at golf and that she was very good-looking.
However, Gerina has a different story, as she was definitely not impressed with Martin when they first met. She was not looking to date anyone at this point in her life and figured if she hung out with him, she would learn something about golf.
When they first started hanging out and playing at Lakewood, Gerina found him a little less annoying. The couple found golf as a common ground, and they also liked playing Slug Bug and watching “The Office.”
Their religious belief was a common ground as they belonged to the same church. Things quickly started moving for them, and the couple married in 2011.
