THIS time last year, Northern Irishman Rory McIlroy was a very happy young man. He had just won his second major tournament — the U.S. PGA — and was ranked the number one golfer in the world. He was dating the beautiful former number one tennis player, Caroline Wozniacki, and he was just about to sign one of the most lucrative endorsements in sports history with Nike. He also finished top of the order of merit on both sides of the Atlantic. So McIlroy has a court case to think about as well as his poor performances on the golf course and as if that isn’t enough, there is the latest chapter of his frustrating year. There are reports that his relationship with Caroline Wozniacki has broken down. It is common knowledge that he is feeling the pressure of coping with a celebrity relationship and this has had a negative bearing on his golf. No doubt details of the relationship will emerge.
