Four-time major champion Rory McIlroy and his wife, Erica Stoll, have called off their divorce, the golfer revealed in a statement to the Guardian on Tuesday (June 11).

“There have been rumours about my personal life recently, which is unfortunate. Responding to each rumour is a fool’s game," McIlroy said. "Over the past weeks, Erica and I have realized that our best future was as a family together. Thankfully, we have resolved our differences and look forward to a new beginning."

McIlroy's reconciliation comes days before his opening round at the U.S. Open at Pinehurst this weekend. The golfer reportedly signed the divorce papers digitally while playing in the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hallow in North Carolina, a tournament he won, on May 9, according to the court documents.

McIlroy and Stoll, who were married in 2017, 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.”
