It’s no secret that we flip back and forth between Team Holly and Team Rory here at LBS. The bottom line is life was just much simpler when the two were together, but now Rory McIlroy is with Caroline Wozniacki and Holly Sweeney spends a lot of her time bashing him and coming up with clever practical jokes. Recently, the 21-year-old Sweeney gave an interview that would be fit for an MTV reality show, but she did reveal an interesting piece of information about Rory and Woz. According to Holly, Rory always had a thing for Woz.
“I always suspected he had a thing for her,” Sweeney said according to the Irish Sunday Mirror. “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. I have to put the blame on him for what has happened but obviously I’m not her biggest fan ever.”
Holly added that McIlroy met Wozniacki at a boxing match in Germany while he and Sweeney were still together. She said she saw a tweet from Woz saying she had met Rory and hadn’t heard from him while he was gone, so that’s how she knew something was up. When he returned home, McIlroy broke the news that he was going to date Woz.
One corny custom golf club later and McIlroy and Wozniacki are still going strong. Sweeney said she thinks their relationship will last “a good while,” but we hope she’s wrong. They’re well on their way to taking the cake as the world’s lamest couple.
