Published: May 30, 2015
Golfer’s new girlfriend: Rory Mcilroy Erica Stoll, Star golfer Rory McIlroy has spoken publicly for the first time about his new girlfriend – saying he is ‘very happy’ in his love life.
The 26-year-old from Holywood, County Down, has been dating Erica Stoll, a 29-year-old from Florida who works for the Professional Golfers Association, for around six months.
The pair met in September 2012 and have been friends for years while McIlroy was dating – and was subsequently engaged to – Danish tennis player Caroline Wozniacki, who he broke up with last year just days after sending out wedding invitations.
Now, the World Number One golfer says finding new romance has made him feel content – and he is spending more time in Pam Beach to be closer to his new beau.
‘I am very happy in my love life’, he told The Times Magazine.
‘We haven’t really been putting it out there. She is from America, which is why I like to spend time in Palm Beach.
‘The past six or seven months have been really nice. That part of my life is going great.’
The lovebirds reportedly first met in September 2012, when McIlroy nearly nearly scuppered the Ryder Cup Miracle at Medinah before it had even started by oversleeping.
Ms Stoll, who is manager of Championship Volunteer Operations at the PGA of America, came to his rescue before police rushed him to the course.
The pair spent New Year’s Eve together this year in a luxury hotel in Co. Mayo – while the previous year he had announced his engagement to Ms Wozniacki.
He is reported to have broken off the relationship through a brief telephone call in May, after saying he ‘wasn’t ready for everything that marriage entails’.
‘I wish Caroline all the happiness she deserves and thank her for the great times we’ve had’, he said,
On Friday it was revealed McIlroy had missed the cut for the Irish Open after a disappointing performance.
