Who is Rory McIlroy’s wife Erica Stoll?

Pretty Erica Stoll hails from New York, but latterly lived in Palm Beach Gardens in Florida.

Erica was working for the PGA when Rory met her so she understands the pressures of his job.

Erica and Rory are one of golf’s most famous couples

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.

Fans were out in force to congratulate the happy couple

A spectacular fireworks display was estimated to have cost more than £50,000 alone.

And why did he break up with Caroline Wozniacki?

RORY was engaged to tennis star Caroline Wozniacki until famously calling things off in 2014 after their wedding invitations had already been sent out.

That was just before the start of that year’s BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.

He went onto to win that week and then captured the Open and US PGA later that year.

Explained Rory:  “I thought at the time that being with someone that was in a similar position to you was the obvious answer.

But they were driven apart after wedding invitations had been dispatched

“But it isn’t, because you can never get away from it. You can never detach yourself and try to come back to the real world.

“And that’s why I feel in such a good place now. I don’t feel Erica wants to change me in any way.

“I can be myself around her; there’s no bulls***, no acting, no show.”
