Rory McIlroy: Wedding was ‘best weekend of my life’
Rory McIlroy is riding high entering The Players Championship this week.
McIlroy married wife Erica Stoll two and a half weeks ago. The two then reportedly went on a 10-day honeymoon. McIlroy’s just now getting back into the swing of things with his golf and still appears to be on his wedding high.
The world No. 2 golfer spoke at a news conference on Tuesday and spoke glowingly about his wedding, calling it the “best weekend” of his life.
“It was awesome, it was the best weekend of my life and hopefully of Erica’s as well,” McIlroy said, via the Belfast Telegraph.
“It was really cool. We tried to keep it as private as possible, it was between our friends and families and we didn’t really want anything else.
“It was a weekend of celebrations. We had a welcome reception on the Friday, the whole wedding day on the Saturday and a farewell brunch on Sunday. We spent three really nice days days with the people we cherish the most and that was really special.”
McIlroy says he tried to lose some weight entering the event this week, so it sounds like he is trying to refocus and prepare for golf again. If he plays extremely well, it could be because he has so much peace of mind.
