Rory McIlroy won't shy from the spotlight

By Marla Published: August 3, 2011

Golf sensation Rory McIlroy is considering rejoining the PGA Tour in 2012, mainly because he feels his game better suits U.S. courses.

But the 22-year-old from Northern Ireland who won this year's U.S. Open could also be motivated by matters of the heart.

He recently broke up with the Irish girlfriend he’d known since he was 16 and was photographed in London after the British Open kissing Danish tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, the world’s No. 1 player.

He seemed to confirm they were dating Wednesday when he said, “The person I’m holding hands
with, we’re both in a position where there’s a high level of scrutiny and it’s just something you have to deal with. I hope it doesn’t go away because it means that I won’t be playing good golf.”
