McIlroy engagement to Wozniacki is over

GOLFER Rory McIlroy has broken off his engagement to tennis star Caroline Wozniacki just days after sending out wedding invitations.

He announced his relationship with Wozniacki, 23, was over because he was not ready for marriage.

The couple got engaged on January 1 after more than two years together. Their wedding was planned for New York in November.

"There is no right way to end a relationship that has been so important to two people," said McIlroy, 25.

"The problem is mine. The wedding invitations issued at the weekend made me realise I wasn't ready for all that marriage entails.

"I wish Caroline all the happiness she deserves and thank her for the great times we've had.

"Obviously (it's) quite a difficult time for Caroline and myself. It was mutual and amicable and we both thought it was the best for both of us. Time to move on and I think I've said all I need to say."
