Professional golfer Rory McIlroy has initiated divorce proceedings with his wife Erica Stoll after seven years of marriage. McIlroy submitted the divorce papers in Palm Beach, Florida, on Monday.

Representatives for the 35-year-old golfer, in a statement, confirmed the filing of the divorce. They emphasized McIlroy’s desire for the process to be respectful and amicable. The couple’s relationship began in 2012 when Stoll worked as a PGA transport official.

McIlroy and Stoll’s romantic involvement started in 2014, shortly after McIlroy called off his engagement to tennis star Caroline Wozniacki.

They tied the knot in 2017 and share a three-year-old daughter named Poppy Kennedy McIlroy. The divorce paperwork was filed one day after Mr. McIlroy, representing Northern Ireland, secured victory in the Wells Fargo Championship and just before the PGA Championship. On Tuesday morning, he was spotted practicing at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky.

Their separation comes amid turmoil in the golfing community due to the emergence of the Saudi-funded LIV Golf tour. McIlroy has been prominently involved in the discussions surrounding LIV over the past couple of years, initially criticizing the venture before shifting his stance and advocating for potential reconciliation.

He stepped down from the PGA Tour board in November and was later linked to a proposal to rejoin the board by replacing US golfer Webb Simpson, a seven-time PGA Tour champion.

Other player directors opposed this decision. Instead, McIlroy was assigned to a committee tasked with negotiating potential minority investment terms with the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia.
