Rory McIlroy: My New Favorite Golfer

In case you didn’t hear, a 20-year-old golfer named Rory McIlroy from Northern Ireland dominated the scene at the Quail Hollow Championship over the weekend, becoming the youngest PGA Tour winner since Tiger Woods accomplished the feat a few years back.  The up-and-coming star finished the event at 15-under and won himself $1.17 million in the process.

Let the gossip begin as pictures of the young star’s girlfriend — Holly Sweeney — have been rapidly surfacing all over the internet.  The two have been dating since they were only in their mid-teens, and good friend Sports By Brooks directed our attention to the heat the now 19-year-old is bringing.  Here’s what McIlroy told the Belfast Telegraph about his girlfriend a few years back:

Holly is quite shy. This is the first time she has been in the media spotlight and she has handled herself really well, but I think she doesn’t want to turn into a typical girlfriend of a sports person, so she likes to take a back seat.”

That’s probably a good idea, Holly.  Sometimes “sports girlfriends” and wives find themselves being cheated on.  Not saying McIlroy has the morals — or lack there of — that Tiger has, but I’m sure girlfriends of golfers are now a bit more worried about their boyfriends cheating on them with porn stars than they were, say, last year. Sweeney doesn’t look to be very shy anymore to me, but that’s just my opinion. In any event, here are some pictures of Rory McIlroy’s girlfriend if you care to have a look at the better half of my new favorite golfer on the Tour:

    Is it for the money, good looks, nice guy, or is it for getting into sporting events free. None of these. It is for their CHARACTER!
