Rory McIlroy and Erica Stoll’s marriage ‘breaking point’ as friend makes damning claim about golf star

Rory McIlroy and wife Erica Stoll’s divorce reportedly did not come as a shock to some within their inner circle as an insider has made a damning claim about the PGA Tour star’s marriage. 

‘A point of contention in Rory’s marriage with Erica was that Erica was lonely in their marriage,’ an insider told Us Weekly. ‘Rory was a hard person to be married to.’ 

McIlroy, 35, filed to end his marriage to Stoll, 36, on May 13 after seven years of marriage, fresh off his latest victory at the Wells Fargo Championship. 

The news of the split came as a surprise with the bombshell filing coming just three days before the PGA Championship, the second major of the year, at Valhalla Golf Club. 

However, the source close to the couple has now revealed to US Weekly that their marriage had hit ‘breaking point’. 

He’s ditched his wedding ring a day after filing for divorce and knows fans will gossip about his personal trauma… but here’s why, behind the genial facade, Rory McIlroy is hard as nails 

They added that the couple were reportedly living separate lives for the past two years due to the PGA Tour star being away from home for tournaments with Stoll eventually reaching ‘breaking point.’

McIlroy and Stoll married in 2017 and share a daughter Poppy, 3, who they welcomed in 2020. 

After becoming a mother, Stoll is said to have thrown herself into parenthood, making Poppy her priority, especially when hit came to McIlroy’s PGA Tour lifestyle on the road.

‘She knew what she was getting into with his profession, but once they had Poppy, things really changed and she had a new perspective,’ the source added. 

‘Erica was usually absent for most of his tournaments and was really focused on Poppy.’ 

McIlroy, whose career earnings total nearly $87million, first met New York state native Erica during the 2012 Ryder Cup at Medinah in Illinois, at which she was working for the PGA of America. 

He went on to win his match over Keegan Bradley as part of what was later hailed as the ‘miracle at Medinah’.

Despite initially meeting at the Ryder Cup that year, it wasn’t until a few years later that the pair would enter a relationship

A few months after calling off his engagement with tennis star Caroline Wozniacki in 2014, McIlroy and Stoll got together before getting engaged a year later.

The golfer is said to have dumped his then-fiancée Wozniacki in a three-minute phone call hours after telling her he loved her. Their split came in May 2014, before they were due to marry in November.

A source also told Us Weekly that the the former Grand Slam winner, who is now married to former NBA star David Lee and has two children, daughter Olivia, 2, and son James, 18 months, ‘wants no part of his drama’ amid her ex’s divorce.

Court documents filed in Palm Beach County last week and obtained by DailyMail.com state that their marriage was ‘irretrievably broken’.

The petition for divorce also states that the pair had signed a prenuptial agreement. However, the details of the arrangement have not been divulged.

McIlroy’s attorney was listed as Thomas Sasser, the same attorney who represented Tiger Woods when his wife divorced him in 2010. 

The filing also calls for shared custody and a parenting plan to be established for Poppy.

McIlroy broke his silence on the split last Tuesday through his communications team, who issued a brief statement to confirm he had filed for divorce. They stressed McIlroy’s desire to ensure the process is ‘as respectful and amicable as possible’. 

But the four-time major winner refused to address the breakup of his marriage ahead of last week’s PGA Championship at Valhalla Golf Club.
