She completed her Bachelor of Arts in Human Resources Management at Leeds in 2017 with a 2:1. In the same year that Chelsie joined the University, she met Matt Wallace.

According to her, on one of the nights out in the club, Wallace encountered Chelsie. He told her, “You’re lucky you met me tonight. I’m a professional golfer. I’m never here, I travel a lot.” It seems Chelsie was impressed by Wallace’s pickup lines.

The pair started dating in December 2014. At the time, Chelsie was pursuing her education and Wallace was trying to make it in the professional golf scene. The duo have been together for nine years and will complete a decade with each other in 2024.

Chelsie Joce and her professional life

While being with the love for life, Chelsie had to sacrifice her dream of working. The initial days of their relationship were going fine. However, it was in 2016 when Wallace started winning and traveling around the world, and the trouble began.

Wallace won six events during his time at the Alps Tour and was on the accreditation list. To get the European Tour card, he played in the Open De Portugal. The Englishman went ahead to win the event and grab a two-year exemption for the tour. In 2018, Matt won four times on the tour. However, his rise was affecting his relationship.

Chelsie could not spend much time with Wallace and she decided to make a major decision for Team Wallace and her life. The Spaniard decided to take a break from her life endeavors and support Wallace all the way. She explained that she made a sacrifice of her career for her happiness and her relationship.

Since his debut in the DP World Tour, Wallace has won four times on the European Tour, six times on the Alps Tour, and once on the PGA Tour. For all his wins and losses, Chelsie has been there to support him and encourage him for the better.

The Joce family has always played golf, except for Chelsie, who was not interested in picking up and hitting the ball. However, fate had something else planned. Now, Chelsie is surrounded by golf all the time. And it seems she loves being a part of golf, even if she is not playing. The kind of loyalty and support Chelsie has shown towards Wallace is commendable. We wish the couple the best of luck for their future and hope Wallace wins the Championship in Dubai.
