The reasons for the divorce were not immediately known. McIlroy’s attorney told Fox News Digital he doesn’t comment on pending lawsuits.

McIlroy’s manager Sean O’Flaherty put out a statement later Tuesday.

“Rory McIlroy’s communications team confirmed today that a divorce has been filed. They stressed Rory’s desire to ensure this difficult time is as respectful and amicable as possible,” he said.

Rory and Erica started dating in 2015 after the PGA Tour star and tennis star Caroline Wozniacki broke off their engagement in May 2014. Rory and Erica became engaged later in 2015 and married in April 2017. They share one child together.

Erica McIlroy was a former PGA of America employee. She was seen by his side at several tournaments, including last year’s  Ryder Cup.
