It's all over for everyone's favourite Ulster-Danish love match - Rory McIlroy has ended his engagement to Caroline Wozniacki.
Accoring to UTV, the golfer made a statement issued this morning, saying
There is no right way to end a relationship that has been so important to two people.
The problem is mine. The wedding invitations issued at the weekend made me realise that I wasn't ready for all that marriage entails. I wish Caroline all the happiness she deserves and thank her for the great times we've had. I will not be saying anything more about our relationship in any setting.
The pair began dating in the summer of 2011 and were engaged on New Year's Eve of 2013. Presumably the date on the fateful wedding invitations wasn't what the Indo said it would be - McIlroy had a go at the paper just last week for "plucking dates from the sky".
