Rory McIlroy had a bit of an embarrassing moment the other day when the celebratory champagne he was holding popped open a little too soon and took him and his fellow golfers by surprise.
The Northern Irish golfer was waiting for US golfer Zach Johnson to finish up his game so they could celebrate the European victory.
However, Rory took to Twitter to react to the incident in possibly the funniest way he could have.
Sharing a vine of the “popping incident” he tweeted: “I swear this usually never happens!!! #premature #sorryzach.”
All we need now is a tweet from Caroline Wozniacki and our lives will be complete!
Caroline Wozniacki has revealed the shocking way she learnt that her engagement to Rory McIlroy was over.
The tennis star opened up about the high-profile break-up, saying it was done over a ten-minute PHONE CALL.
Nice one, Rory!
Caroline spoke about the awful time to a US television show In Depth with Graham Bensinger, saying: “I was shocked, I thought at least I would get a face-to-face or something but there was nothing. It was just a phone call and then I did not hear from him again.”
She continued on to say that it was made all the more difficult as Rory made the entire ordeal very public from the beginning: “It was very hard because he made it very public from the start. He put out a press release and all of that so it just got put in my face.”
Caroline also said that at first she believed the phone call was a joke.
Thankfully, she has now moved on and says she is on the lookout for someone new: “I would like a taller guy so I can wear high heels. I’m pretty strict with my box ticking. I look for someone who is honest, fun to be around and doesn’t take himself too seriously.”
It’s good that Caroline got to tell her side of the story, just as Rory did – we just hope he’s not sensitive about all of those height jokes!
Rory McIlroy has had a crazy few months, not just on the golfing course but on the romantic front too!
Following his engagement with tennis player, Caroline Wozniacki coming to an abrupt end back in May, Rory was then linked to Irish model, Nadia Forde.
Now, it looks like Rory has taken his interests stateside as he has been spotted with whom Radar Online are calling his possible new “girlfriend” – actress, Meghan Markle.
Meghan stars as paralegal, Rachel Zane in the USA Network drama, Suits.
The pair were seen out for dinner with friends recently, which may not seem like a confirmation (obviously) but Rory also featured in Meghan’s ALS bucket challenge video, after nominating her himself.
To add even more fuel to the romance rumours, Meghan runs a lifestyle website called The Tig in which she conducted an interview with Rory and well, let's just say it's very cute!
Hmm, could this be the start of something new for the two?
He may be a household name in Ireland, and now it looks like it won’t be long before Rory McIlroy is known all over America too!
The Holywood native, who’s pretty handy with a golf club like, appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night alongside Tiger Woods.
The show features a hilarious game called Facebreakers, in which Jimmy and his two guests must be the first to break the glass that has their face on it…you’ll get it.
Needless to say, the winner was predicted long before the show aired and his name was actually already engraved on the trophy…!
Rory McIlroy has spoken out about his ex, Holly Sweeney’s, exciting baby news.
Holly, who Rory went out with for two years, is six months pregnant with her first child – and Rory is really happy for her!
The golfer, who it has just been revealed will play for Ireland in the 2016 Olympics, said about the pregnancy news: “I’m happy for her. You know, it’s great to see she’s happy – all good.”
Rory called off his engagement to tennis player, Caroline Wozniacki, last month.
Rory McIlroy hasn’t had the best of luck in love lately, after splitting with his fiancé Caroline Wozniacki days after posting out the invitations to his wedding. However, the same can’t be said for his ex Holly Sweeney who has revealed that she is six months pregnant with her boyfriend Jeff Mason.
Holly and Rory broke up after six years together, and days later it was revealed that he had hooked up with Caroline Wozniacki.
At the time Holly was understandably upset, saying:
“I always suspected he had a thing for her. He’s always been a big fan of tennis. When he was watching the women’s games he always said he fancied her but I didn’t take it that seriously – little did I know.
“It was Rory that ran away with Caroline – not the other way around – so I guess I blame Rory, or both of them if I’m totally honest.”
It looks like her split with Rory is the last thing on her mind now though, congratulations Holly!
It’s been exactly a week, since Rory McIlroy released a statement that he had decided to end his engagement to tennis star, Caroline Woziacki.
But now Caroline has decided to open up about her public break-up with Rory, during a question and answer section at today’s French Open.
“The only thing I really have to say is that, you know, thank everybody for their support and sweet messages. That’s really nice.”
But Caroline also added that nothing prepared her for Rory’s heart breaking announcement last week.
“You’re not prepared for something like this, and it came as a bit of a shock. You need to just keep going and keep moving forward.”
Caroline said she wanted to keep her private life out of the media but was grateful for all the support she received.
“You know, what happens in my personal life, I just want to really keep that between my closest people around me. You know, I just have to move on.”
We hear you Caroline, we hope things start to get easier for you soon!
Everyone is still talking about Rory McIlroy’s shock decision to call off his wedding to tennis player, Caroline Wozniacki, not long after issuing invites to their upcoming nuptials.
But it could a lot worse for poor Caroline, as one 4fm radio listener revealed on Wednesday night.
Mark spoke about how he could understand Rory’s decision to call off the wedding, as he also decided to leave his bride-to-be. But unlike Rory, he made this decision moments before his actual wedding ceremony took place.
However the conversation took a sudden turn when he was then confronted by the bride’s aunt live on radio.
A little more than 24-hours after Rory McIlroy told the world about his “mutual” breakup with Caroline Wozniacki, the tennis star broke her silence by tweeting to her 614,000 followers.
Golfing star Rory called off the couple’s engagement after admitting to getting cold feet once the ‘save the date’ invites were sent out.
Caroline took to Twitter after the announcement saying, “It’s a hard time for me right now. Thanks for all the sweet messages! Happy I support Liverpool right now because I know I’ll never walk alone”
Hold your head up high Caroline!
Caroline also changed her Twitter avatar and bio, removing the word ‘fiancée’ to reflect her changed relationship status.
The couple got engaged on News Year’s eve after three years of dating, and 23-year-old Caroline had been planning a summer wedding to her beau.
It was also reported that Rory would not be asking for the €150,000 engagement ring back.
Although 25-year-old Rory is worth an estimated €30m so it won’t leave him too short!
It has been announced that Rory McIlroy has called off his wedding to Caroline Wozniacki.
The golfer released a statement reading: “There is no right way to end a relationship that has been so important to two people. The problem is mine. The wedding invitations issued at the weekend made me realise that I wasn’t ready for all that marriage entails. 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.”
Rory and Caroline began dating in 2011 and got engaged last New Year’s Day in Sydney.
We wish them all the best, it’s never easy to end a relationship.
