Rory McIlroy Announces Engagement To Erica Stoll

It is round two in the commitment stakes for golfer  Rory McIlroy  after he announced his engagement to American girlfriend Erica Stoll.

The 26-year-old Northern Irishman, who famously dumped tennis star Caroline Wozniacki before their wedding day, confirmed he is ready to settle down with 27-year-old Stoll at a fundraiser in Belfast on Thursday.

Stoll, a PGA employee McIlroy first met in 2012, proudly sported a large, sparkly diamond on her engagement finger at The Paddy Wallace Fund event.

McIlroy, who has dated the blonde for a year, fuelled rumours of an engagement earlier this week after he shared an image of the Eiffel Tower on social media.

The former World Number One was previously engaged to tennis star Caroline Wozniacki but reportedly broke up with her over the phone after their wedding invitations had been sent out.

They began dating in 2011 and McIlroy popped the question on New Year’s Eve 2014, but five months later he called off the engagement after realising he “wasn’t ready for all that marriage entails.”

“The problem is mine,” he said in a statement.

“I wish Caroline all the happiness she deserves and thank her for the great times we’ve had.”

The newly-engaged world No. 3 believes he can play even better golf next year after undergoing laser eye surgery this week.

He posted an image of himself post-surgery on his Facebook page.

McIlroy, who usually plays in contact lenses, will be bidding for a fifth major, and a career grand slam of all the Big Four titles, at the US Masters in April.

“It (the surgery) was successful,” said McIlroy while speaking at the charity event.

“I had it (Wednesday) morning in Dublin and I woke up and it was like a whole new world, it’s incredible,” he told the BBC.

“I think it should hopefully improve me on the golf course and make everything a little bit sharper, that’s another positive to take into next year.”

McIlroy was out of action for five weeks this year and missed the British Open at St Andrews after rupturing ankle ligaments playing soccer with his friends.

Former world No. 1 Tiger Woods underwent laser eye surgery in 1999 and 2007, winning his first tournament back on both occasions.
