Court Hears Claims That Rory McIlroy 'Deliberaty Wiped' Up To Eight Phones

Rory McIlroy's ongoing court action against his former management team has brought up claims that the world no.1 golfer purposely 'wiped clean' up to eight mobile phones despite the fact that they may have held important information relating to the case.

McIlroy is currently in the midst of a lengthy legal battle with Dublin based Horizon Sports Management, as well as Gurteen Ltd and Canovan Management Services, regarding his assertion that a contract signed in December 2011 was 'limiting' and as such has been rendered invalid.


Senior counsel, Paul Sreenan, said of Mcilroy that the 'factory resetting' of the devices was 'incredible for a person in his position'. It is claimed that the devices involved relate to a number of key figures in the case including McIlroy's father Gerry.

The claims were made in the High Court today where Horizon and the two other companies are undertaking an application for further disclosure of documents and evidence relating to McIlroy's case.

McIlroy has claimed that the turnover in phones which were either passed on to others or to charity having been wiped, was as a result of his 'transient life-style' and that he also changed them regularly to avoid journalists.
