The reasons for the divorce were not immediately known. Fox News Digital reached out to McIlroy’s attorney for further comment.

Rory and Erica started dating in 2015 after the PGA Tour star and tennis star Caroline Wozniacki broke off their engagement in May 2014. Rory and Erica became engaged later in 2015 and married in April 2017. They share one child together.

Erica McIlroy was a former PGA of America employee. She was seen by his side at several tournaments, including last year’s Ryder Cup.
