, Inside Rory McIlroy’s family life as star recovers from Open Championship disappointment

RORY MCILROY came agonisingly close to winning the 150th Open Championship at the weekend but fell short down the stretch.

Australian Cameron Smith took the title after shooting an incredible final round of 64.

Rory McIlroy of Europe and his wife Erica celebrate after winning the Ryder Cup in 2018.

We look at McIlroy’s family life as he looks to rebound from another Major disappoitment:

Who is Rory McIlroy’s wife Erica Stoll?

Erica Stoll was born in 1988 and raised in Irondequoit, New York with sister Natalie Stoll.

However, Eric, 31, latterly lived in Palm Beach Gardens in Florida.

Erica was working for the PGA when Rory met her as the manager of the Championship Volunteer Operations for the PGA of America in 2011.

They actually first set eyes on each other in 2012 when Rory nearly ruined the Ryder Cup Miracle at Medinah by oversleeping.

Erica was the PGA employee who came to his rescue before police rushed him to the course that September morning.

The pair welcomed their first child, daughter Poppy Kennedy McIlroy, on August 31 2020.

The couple tied the knot on April 21, 2017.

Their guest list included soul legend Stevie Wonder, Coldplay’s Chris Martin and One Direction’s Niall Horan.

Three-time Major champion Padraig Harrington and former Ryder Cup skipper Paul McGinley also attended McIlroy’s wedding in the grounds of Ashworth Castle, one of Ireland’s top of hotels.

Where do they live?

McIlroy parted with £8.5million when he bought his stunning Florida home from Ernie Els.
