McIlroy to tie knot with Erica Stoll in Ireland

Johannesburg [South Africa], Apr 20 : World number two Rory McIlroy is all set to tie knot with fiancee and New York native Erica Stoll in Ireland on Saturday.

According to a report in the Belfast Telegraph, the ceremony will take place at Ireland's most desirable destinations, Ashford Castle, in what is being described as "the wedding of the decade." Speaking after losing the Masters at Augusta National, the four-time major winner said he was "excited" about the prospect of becoming a married man.

"It's a great time in our lives. That's what I'm - the next few weeks it's all about that. I'll come back to the Players refreshed and a married man and start a new chapter in my life," Sport24 quoted McIlroy as saying.

McIlroy and Stoll met when she was an employee of the PGA of America. She famously saved the golfer from missing his tee time for the singles matches of the 2012 Ryder Cup.

The duo started dating after McIlroy called off his engagement with tennis star Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark in May 2014 and got engaged in December 2015.
