Rory McIlroy: I Had to Beg to Get Holly Sweeney Back

It takes a real man to admit his mistakes, especially when that man is a 22-year-old superstar who already has more money than he knows what to do with.  Even the most chauvinistic bro who has seen Rory McIlroy’s girlfriend probably would be not upset with Northern Ireland’s finest taking an extremely humble stance when talking about his better half.  If talking about having to beg to get his girlfriend back makes McIlroy sound a little soft, he clearly doesn’t care.

That’s right — the same confident and arrogant golfer who won the U.S. Open less than a month ago and turned the trophy into his own personal cocktail glass admitted in a recent documentary that getting Holly Sweeney back after a brief hiatus was one of the more difficult tasks he’s ever had to tackle.

At the start of the year I wanted to take a break and just focus on my game,’ McIlroy told BBC Northern Ireland, via Mail Online, in a documentary entitled Rory’s Major Breakthrough.

“But I realized pretty quickly I had made a huge mistake, and I had to do a lot of begging and grovelling to get her back. Holly (left, with McIlroy) is fantastic. I have known her for six years and for someone my age that is a huge chunk of my life. She keeps my feet on the ground and knows the things to say to me. She has been such a great support. She takes my mind off golf and everything else that is going on.”

Oh yeah, and she’s one of Steve’s smokin’ hot sports girlfriends for those of you who weren’t aware.  This isn’t the first time Rory has credited Sweeney for keeping him grounded, so our boy is obviously just comfortable in his own skin.  Got a problem with that?

    Never let a women make you grovel to get her back.  Apologize and give it time.  If she doesn’t want to accept it, then there is a better woman out there for you.  Once you’ve whipped it is all over.  And kid, for GODS sake get a iron clad pre nup.  ALL women will take you to the cleaners no matter how nice they seem.  $$$ is in their blood and they will leave you with 1/2 your earnings and do little for it.  Pay attention to your mentors, your parents, your advisors and those who have been fleeced before you.  And always wear protection, babies are a way around the pre nup.

    He groveled! Give me a break!!!
     Rory, you win her back by not trying to win her back. Go ahead and go groveling to her and she’ll resent your whinny a$$ even more. Dude, cut off all contact for 1 or 2 weeks, and if she’s not that pissed, she’ll come back, and then you’re back in the driver-seat. Pissed-off GFs will come back to if you just leave them alone

    Touch-YOU must be VERY jaded as to think that “all” women think about taking a man’s money and that it is “in their blood”.  Either you had a VERY sad childhood and your parents divorced or you are a loser that was rejected and has to crap on anyone truly in love.  Be happy for those who have found it and buck up.  Eventually your bitterness will fade and you too will find it.
