McIlroy (he’s worth $422m) engaged again – report


Citing a source “close to Rory McIlroy,” the Irish Independent reported that the 26-year-old, four-time Major champion is now engaged to girlfriend Erica Stoll. Stoll, 27, is a former employee of the PGA of America who was instrumental in famously getting McIlroy a police escort to make his singles match at Medinah just in time at the 2012 Ryder Cup, where the Europeans roared back for an incredible comeback win.McIlroy and Stoll reportedly began dating roughly a year.

And he’s very rich…

McIlroy is valued at $422 million, according to documents filed by his eponymous management company. Rory McIlroy Inc., which McIlroy formed in October 2013 after prematurely leaving former management firm Horizon Sports Management, values the Ulsterman at that nearly half-billion-dollar figure based on his on-course earnings, as well current endorsements with Nike, Bose, Omega and others. Tiger Woods was recently valued by Forbes at over $700 million.
