Report: Rory McIlroy’s divorce from wife Erica is off ahead of U.S. Open

PINEHURST, N.C. — Rory McIlroy and wife Erica have agreed to reconcile their marriage, according to The Guardian.

McIlroy filed papers in Florida setting the divorce in motion ahead of the PGA Championship last month. The couple have been married for seven years and have one child, a daughter, Poppy.

But the Guardian reports that court papers filed on Tuesday indicate the case has been dismissed at the request of both parties.

Contacted by the Guardian, McIlroy said: “There have been rumors about my personal life recently, which is unfortunate. Responding to each rumor is a fool’s game.

“Over the past weeks, Erica and I have realized that our best future was as a family together. Thankfully, we have resolved our differences and look forward to a new beginning.”

McIlroy made no mention of the matter during his Tuesday press conference ahead of the 124th U.S. Open. He is seeking to win his fifth major and first in nearly 10 years.

The Northern Irishman is grouped in the first two rounds with Scottie Scheffler and Xander Schauffele.
