Rory McIlroy ‘resolves differences’ with wife Erica and ends divorce proceedings | Golf News

Rory McIlroy has reconciled with his wife Erica and voluntarily dismissed the
divorce petition he filed in a Florida court last month.

McIlroy filed for divorce on May 13, the day after winning the Wells Fargo Championship for the fourth time and just three days before the start of the US PGA Championship.

However, court records in Palm Beach County in Florida show that a “notice of voluntary dismissal” was filed on Tuesday and the case status is listed as “closed”.

Wayne ‘Radar’ Riley looks back at Rory McIlroy’s win at Valhalla in 2014 at the PGA Championship, his last major triumph

The four-time major winner told the Guardian: “There have been rumours about my personal life recently, which is unfortunate. Responding to each rumour is a fool’s game.

“Over the past weeks, Erica and I have realised that our best future was as a family together. Thankfully, we have resolved our differences and look forward to a new beginning.”

McIlroy met Erica in 2012 when she was working for the PGA of America at the Ryder Cup and McIlroy credited her with helping him get a police escort to the course after misreading his tee time for the Sunday singles.

After making it to the course with just minutes to spare, McIlroy went on to beat Keegan Bradley as Europe pulled off the ‘Miracle at Medinah’ by recovering from 10-6 behind to retain the trophy.
