Cue the slew of jokes about being really sure before sending out the wedding invitations this time.
Just 18 months after breaking off his engagement to prolific tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, European Tour standout Rory McIlroy is engaged again.
This time the significant other is Erica Stoll, a former employee of the PGA Tour of America. According to reports from Reuter’s, McIlroy popped the question to Stoll during a recent trip to Paris.
The 26-year-old McIlroy confirmed the engagement to the 27-year-old Stoll at a charity event in Belfast on Saturday.
The two first met in 2012, but only became an item in the last 12 months or so. McIlroy began dating Wozniacki in 2011 while she was ranked No. 1 in the world, and got engaged on New Year’ s Eve 2013.
A few months later, McIlroy repeatedly broke up with Wozniacki over the phone days after the couple’s wedding invitations had gone out. The effects were almost immediate. McIlroy won the next tournament he played in, and went on to win the Open Championship and PGA Championship en route to becoming No. 1 in the world.
