1 Min Read

LONDON, July 18 (Reuters) - U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy's relationship with his girlfriend Holly Sweeney is over, the Northern Irishman's management team said on Monday.

"Rory McIlroy's long-term relationship with Holly Sweeney came to an amicable end before the British Open," an International Sports Management spokesman (ISM) said.

The 22-year-old McIlroy, who won the U.S. Open last month, finished down the field at the British Open on Sunday in a share of 25th place. The tournament was won by his ISM stablemate and fellow countryman Darren Clarke.
