You don’t have to be a club-and-ball fan to find out who Rory Mcilroy is, the man has achieved such great feats in his profession that his name is familiar even to those who want nothing know of him.
Of course, Rory is a professional golfer and, as is common knowledge among those who love the game, he is a member of the PGA and European Tours. The man is from Northern Ireland and is probably the best golfer on the northeast island of Ireland.
As a golfer, Mcilroy’s reputation precedes him for several reasons, including being one of only four golfers in history to win three majors when they were just 25 years old. Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and Jordan Spieth have also achieved this feat. If you think that’s not so bad, then consider the fact that Mr. Rory could boast of winning four major championships. His first was in 2011 when he won the US Open with a fantastic record score. The following year, he won the PGA Championship with another outstanding record. In 2014, the man again won the PGA Championship and the Open Championship.
Disregarding the above, it is recorded that Rory Mcilroy once held the No. 1 spot in the Official World Golf Rankings for over a year (95 weeks). Based on the accomplishments and milestones of his golfing career, Rory strongly believes that his golfing history is organic. If you insist on getting more details about it, all he would divulge would be a result of his passion for the game as a child and imitating his father’s swing with a plastic golf club, his progression through the amateur stages, transitioning to professional golf in 2007 and ultimately becoming a golfing superstar.
It’s tempting to recount the details of what happened, but we’ll stay focused and tell what we know about the golfer’s wife, her net worth, height and weight. But before we start, let’s briefly describe the golfer’s life.
Bio – Rory Mcilroy’s Early Life
This is unknown to many, Rory has no siblings. He is the only child of his parents – Rosie and Gerry Mcilroy. Rory was born on May 4, 1989 and his birthplace is in Holywood, County Down, Northern Ireland.
Rory’s dad is said to have helped nurture his son’s passion for the club and the ball confided in Michael Bannon, who is still Rory’s coach, tasked with teaching little Rory a thing or two about this sport.
Bannon was fascinated by the boy’s interest in golf. Since he was dedicated and always practicing, the coach had no choice but to prioritize leading and teaching. During this time, it became apparent that Rory’s love for the game would amount to something phenomenal when he brought home the Under-10 World Championship from Doral, Florida. He was only 9 years old at the time.
Net worth of Mcilroy
Anyone who wants to pursue a career in golf and to be financially successful should choose Rory as their role model. The man is one of the most financially successful sportsmen. That’s why the UK-based media company – SportsPro in 2013 named him the third most sellable athlete in the world.
The previous year (2012), it was widely reported that the golfer became the youngest player to earn $10 million from the PGA Tour. A similar report was also released in 2011. It was reported that the golfer’s European Tour profits reached €10 million, making him the youngest player to earn that much. Rory was then only 22 years old.
In 2015, the popular American Business Magazine, Forbes estimated Rory’s annual income at $48.5 million. In 2017, the magazine again estimated that the man had earned $50 million. Rory also benefits from her various endorsement deals with famous brands. His most lucrative contract is probably the one with Nike. In 2013, he was supposed to have signed a 10-year contract worth $250 million. Later in 2017, it was again reported that the golfer had been granted a 10-year contract extension with Nike worth $200 million. On Rory’s website (rorymcilroy.com), you’ll find him proclaiming that his partnership with Nike is a dream come true.
After Mcilroy placed his County Down in his home state asking for £2million in September 2012, he bought a $10million flat in Palm Beach, Florida in December of that year. The value of everything he owns is not known.

Rory Mcilroy’s love life revolves around EricaStoll. She was an employee of PGA America when Rory met her and they became friends. It was a long time ago, in 2012. They remained friends for several years until their love for each other became intense and they finally fell in love in 2015.
As their love continued to blossom, they got engaged in December 2015 and finally exchanged vows on April 22, 2017 at Ashford Castle, County Mayo. As expected, the ceremony was lavish.
