Rory Mc Ilroy played inspired golf in winning the British Open, and he may have drawn his inspiration from a 25-year-old lingerie model.
UK media outlets are giving at least some of the credit for Mc Ilroy’s third major championship to Nadia Forde, a dark-haired beauty from Ireland who has been linked to the Northern Irishman.
Forde was not seriously hurt in the crash, Mail Online reported, though her car flipped “six times” during the accident.
Forde made a vague reference to the incident on July 15, posting on Instagram that she was feeling “very loved and very very lucky,” while posting an image that read “I am the luckiest girl in the world.” While stories are surfacing about the single-since-May golfer’s budding romance with the brunette, Mc Ilroy’s friends are insisting that the two are not dating.
“He thinks she is lovely but she’s just not his type,” a friend told the Irish Independent. He’s not looking for a girlfriend anyway.” Mc Ilroy’s ex, Caroline Wozniacki, certainly fits the “sporty girls” profile.
The Danish tennis star was set to wed Mc Ilroy before he called off their engagement in May after sending out invitations to their never-to-be wedding.
Rory Mc Ilroy is happily married to his wife, Erica Stoll. Over the years, Mc Ilroy has drawn comparisons to Tiger Woods, perhaps due to his golf game and his love life.
Before meeting Stoll, Mc Ilroy had a few other relationships of note.
"That part of my life is going great."Prior to Stoll, Mc Ilroy was engaged to professional athlete Caroline Wozniacki.“The bottom line with me and Rory is we have mutual friends who introduced us and we’ve been in each other’s company,” Forde told Mail But the site paints the pair as being more than friends, reporting that Mc Ilroy blew off a practice session leading up the British Open at Royal Liverpool to be at Forde’s side following a scary car crash while she was traveling from London to Manchester.Stoll flashed her diamond ring when she and her future husband attended The Paddy Wallace Fund in Belfast Thursday.Mc Ilroy and Stoll have been dating for about a year, and the 26-year-old Irishman decided he was ready to spend the rest of his life with Stoll on a recent trip to Paris.Mc Ilroy posted a picture of the Eiffel Tower, where many have speculated that he popped the question.He and Stoll made their first public appearance together in June at the Royal County Down, but before that they were spotted in Rochester, New York, in April.The model is echoing those remarks, laughing off bookmakers making her the 6-1 favorite to be the golfer’s next gal pal. The golfer and girlfriend Erica Stoll have stepped out about a week after engagement rumors surfaced. The golfer opened up about his personal life to the Irish Independent ..."We met when she was working for the PGA of America, and renting a condo in Palm Beach, and I found it refreshing being with someone who was living a normal life rather than, 'Oh! '" He continued to reference his relationship with Wozkiacki -- particularly how he thought the fact they were both crushing their sports at the time would bring them closer together. "I thought at the time that being with someone that was in a similar position to you was the obvious answer.
