There have been rumors of a Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki split off and on for some time, but it appears that this time it has actually happened.
With the biggest tournament in Europe right around the corner–the BMW PGA Championship–McIlroy made the unexpected announcement that he and his Danish tennis star fiance, Caroline Wozniacki were calling the wedding off and going there separate ways.
The problem was nothing unique (as far as they are letting the public know). The 25-year old golfer and 23-year old tennis star were simply not ready to be married. In his announcement McIlroy took the blame:
”The problem is mine. The wedding invitations issued at the weekend made me realize that I wasn’t ready for all that marriage entails,” McIlroy said. ”I wish Caroline all the happiness she deserves and thank her for the great times we’ve had. I will not be saying anything more about our relationship in any setting.”
The announcement was surprising since the two had recently spent time in London following the Players Championship and Caroline had even withdrawn from a tournament in Rome to spend more time with Rory.
As busy as they both are with their careers it is hard to see where they have the time to enjoy being married so it is good that they are discovering this now rather than down the road and/or with kids involved.
