Rory McIlroy says 'golf now my girlfriend' after stunning summer

Rory McIlroy says "golf is my girlfriend" as he ruled out becoming involved in a relationship for the foreseeable future, four months after his break-up with Caroline Wozniacki.

McIlroy split from the tennis star in May, just days after invites for the couple's planned wedding were sent out, and the 25-year-old has since gone on to land back-to-back major titles.

"Golf is my girlfriend at the minute and it's going to be that way for a while," said McIlroy.

McIlroy made the remarks in a BBC Northern Ireland documentary entitled Major Champions which is on BBC One Northern Ireland on Wednesday, 24 September at 22:35 BST and BBC Two on Thursday, 25 September at 13:30 BST.
