This boy from Northern Ireland knew nothing but golf. Frankly, he wasn’t given much choice. Introduced to the sport at a very young age by his golfer dad, this Northern Irish man took to it like fish to water. Born on May 4, 1989, in Holywood, Northern Ireland, this gentleman became the youngest member of the Holywood Golf Club when he joined it as a seven-year-old. Eight years later, when he was fifteen, this lad was playing for the Irish team at the 2004 European Boys’ Team Championship.

The youngest-ever winner of the West of Ireland Championship and the Irish Close Championship in 2005, the man from Hollywood became a professional in 2007. The world’s top-ranked amateur at the time, he made the cut in his very first professional event at The Quinn Direct British Masters. He won the Dubai Desert Classic in 2009, his first-ever title, before joining the PGA Tour in 2010. This Northern Irish golfer didn’t have to wait long to win his first title there. The Quail Hollow Championship win came in 2010, and he followed it up with twenty more victories. With 33 professional wins under his belt, this golfer will be looking to add a few more titles under his belt before he calls it a day.

Rory McIlroy Wife

When a woman shares a birthday with your idol, she probably could be the one for you. Erica did, but that wasn’t the only reason why he liked her. From Irondequoit, New York, this woman used to work for the PGA when she first met Rory in 2012. The man was still with Caroline Wozniacki back then. But as fate would have it, their engagement was called off, and he began dating Erica in 2014. The relationship was made public in 2015, and he proposed to her the same year. He has been married to her since April 22, 2017.
