It looks like the sporting world’s newest super couple has been confirmed.
A week after we first mentioned golfer and U.S. Open winner Rory McIlroy flirting via Twitter with world No. 1 tennis player Caroline Wozniacki, the couple has been spotted together in the wild. McIlroy’s reps also confirmed he’s no longer with long-time girlfriend Holly Sweeney.
“Rory McIlroy’s long-term relationship with Holly Sweeney came to an amicable end before the British Open,” an International Sports Management spokesman (ISM) said.
That would be the same Holly Sweeney McIlroy reportedly begged to take him back earlier this year.
Oddly, even though the couple was supposedly broken up before the British Open, Sweeney made it a point to say she was staying away from the event because McIlroy plays better without her as a distraction, something she’s done before.
He finished tied for 25th.
Wonder what his excuse was this time?
McIlroy and Wozniacki reportedly met in Hamburg at the Wladimir Klitschko vs. David Haye fight.
