Breaking up is never easy…unless you do it in 3 minutes.
Just ask PGA Pro Rory McIlroy (via Bleacher Report):
There’s no right way to end a relationship, but Rory McIlroy may have skipped some steps and shattered a land speed record in breaking things off with Caroline Wozniacki.
According to Christopher Clarey of The New York Times (h/t Jason McIntyre of The Big Lead), the 25-year-old golfer broke up with Wozniacki over the telephone on May 21.
A report by Neil Harman of The Times of London claims their conversation lasted three minutes in total. Harman writes that the young tennis star initially believed her fiance was kidding:
Man that break up was served faster than a Nadal ace…keeping Wozniacki flat footed.
Wozniacki claimed the breakup came as “a bit of a shock,” which may be an understatement considering she and her fiance had just finished sending out wedding invitations.
So what happens when a young man if focused and untethered? He wins tournaments.
This new untethered existence appears to be having polar opposite effects on the former couple. McIlroy sallied forth and won the BMW PGA Championship on Sunday, while Wozniacki floundered to an early exit at the French Open on Tuesday.
Good for Rory for not making a huge mistake and marrying a women that he’s not 100% committed to.
Game, set, match McIlroy.
