Rory McIlroy has not been seen with his girlfriend Erica Stoll in months.
Is he wanting Tiger Woods fame more than her? Or is he racing his ex fiancée Caroline Wozniacki to sports success?
Either way, we have reasons to doubt that the Irish golfer and Erica Stoll may not be in the peachiest of terms.
According to Telegraph, Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley commented that Rory McIlroy is so close to the kind of fame that Tiger Woods has.
“The biggest challenge that Rory has got is keeping the fire lit,” he said.
“Keeping it in his heart, that’s the biggest challenge anybody could have.
That’s what made Tiger phenomenal.
At the moment, Rory has it, that incredible passion.
But for another 20 years? That is another question.” Rory McIlroy may be putting his career before his relationship with Erica Stoll.
Let’s hope that his girlfriend doesn’t take offence to this.
Seeing how the Irish golfer has a history of abandoning relationships, Erica better watch out! Rory McIlroy has been struggling earlier this month to keep up his image of one of golf’s rising stars this week.
So it only makes sense that he has reduced the appearance with his new girlfriend Erica Stoll.
The fact that his ex girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki has hit her stride in the tennis world will probably make him feel a little uncomfortable.
Seeing how his highly publicized relationship with Caroline Wozniacki turned out, keeping the relationship with Erica Stoll on the down low may be for the best.
So who is his new girlfriend Erica Stoll? According to Daily Mail, she is the manager of Championship Volunteer Operations at the PGA of America.
So she shares the golf world with Rory.
According to Belfast Telegraph, Rory McIlroy and his PGA girl spent the NYE together and made trips to Dublin and Ashford Castle.
When they stayed in Dublin, they chose “the penthouse of The Westbury Hotel” and enjoyed “drinks at trendy hotspot Peruke & Periwig.” Sounds like the Irish golfer isn’t skimping on his new girl.
