Four-time major winner Rory McIlroy’s next PGA event will reportedly be his first as a married man.
The 27-year-old is set to wed fiancee Erica Stoll on April 22 in Ireland, according to the Belfast Telegraph. Golf insiders are reportedly dubbing it the “wedding of the decade” with the sport’s biggest stars expected to attend along with McIlroy’s pop-star friend Niall Horan of One Direction.
The ceremony will be held inside an historic Irish castle and could feature a performance by Coldplay.
Sounds no different than your nuptials, right?
“I am excited,” McIlroy said at the Masters. “It’s a great time in my life, and it would have been nice to walk down the aisle in the green jacket!
“It’s a great time in our lives and it’s all about that over the next couple of weeks and I’ll come back at the Players refreshed and a married man and start a new chapter in my life.”
McIlory met Stoll in 2012, when she was working for the PGA of America and helped him get a police escort to make his tee time at the Ryder Cup after a scheduling mixup.
The two began dating after McIlroy ended his engagement with former No. 1 tennis player Caroline Wozniacki. McIlroy and Stoll were engaged in December 2015.
McIlroy finished in a tie for seventh at the Masters after shooting a three under par. He will make his next start at TPC Sawgrass in search of his first Players title.
