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.

Boogying to the band’s Play That Funky Music: Tennis legend Aaron Krickstein, who happens to be Pressel’s uncle.

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.

      Ok, it’s not my greatest moment ever, but I needed to ask her about the wedding. What do you suppose she was doing?

    Morgan is terrible for the LPGA. Bad attitude, arrogant, and just not friendly. She is one of the reasons why sponsors are not enamored like they used to be.

      What? No way: I met Morgan a couple of years ago on the practice tee at Upper Montclair. She could not have been nicer or more considerate. A pleasure to be with if only for a few minutes.

      I have worked several LPGA golf events as a volunteer and Morgan has NOT been anything but nice, chatty and a pleasure to be around! One of best ambassadors for LPGA and she goes out of her way to engage the young girls that come out and be a great role model.

    She came to our city and put on a FREE clinic for your girls wanting to improve their games. She stayed for hours and spent time with every girl. She is a mensch!

    Madison is playing NCAA Division I golf. And Morgan is the leader halfway through the third round of the LPGA Wegmans Championship!

    Madison is playing NCAA Division I golf. And Morgan is the leader halfway through the third round of the LPGA Wegmans Championship! We saw her out there yesterday and she was very friendly with the crowd. Not many Jewish golf pros out there so it is very nice to see her competing for her second major!
