Four-time major champion and current No. 2 overall world golfer Rory McIlroy has reportedly filed for divorce from his wife, Erica Stoll, TMZ Sports reports.

Court records show that McIlroy, 35, submitted the documents in Florida on Monday (May 13), hours after he won the Wells Fargo Championship tournament at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte over the weekend. McIlroy and Stoll, who were married in 2017 and share 3-year-old daughter, Poppy, were initially linked in 2014 after he called off his engagement to tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, having met two years prior when Stoll worked as a PGA transport official at the Ryder Cup, reports.

“Erica that week was always the one that was checking us in and out. She was there at transportation, so she was always in the car park over there (by the clubhouse),” McIlroy told NBC Sports during an interview in 2019. “But yeah, it’s still cool to look around and think about that week, and obviously everything that’s happened since then. It’s pretty cool.”

McIlroy is set to compete in the PGA Championship this week, a major event he had previously won twice in 2012 and 2014. The Northern Ireland native won his last major at the 2014 Open Championship.
