Mere weeks after Rory McIlroy raved about his longtime girlfriend Holly Sweeney who helped keep him grounded, we’re learning that the couple has split. The timing of the announcement is quite curious — just last week McIlroy talked about having to beg to get Sweeney back after they had broken up at the beginning of the year. On Monday however, McIlroy’s management team confirmed the couple has broken up. But that’s not the end of the story.
Busted Racquet informs us that tennis blogger Omes Tennis caught a picture of Rory McIlroy and world No. 1 tennis player Caroline Wozniacki hanging out together in London Sunday night. Omes Tennis had a change of heart and decided to pull the photo, but it hasn’t changed that we now have a huge love story on our hands.
Omes Tennis not only caught a shot of them hanging out together at All Bar One in Central London, they also got a shot of the two kissing:
The two hanging out together confirms the flirtation our friends at Fan Phooey have been writing about for over a week. Fan Phooey noticed lots of playful tweeting going on between the young golfer and tennis star, but given McIlroy’s relationship with Sweeney, we didn’t think much of it. Now that they have broken up, he should be free to pursue Wozniacki.
And just like that, possibly the most powerful athlete couple in sports has been formed.Google+
