Rory McIlroy has reportedly ended his relationship with tennis star Caroline Wozniacki. Comments from people close to McIlroy's camp say that he ended things with Wozniacki after she tweeted a photo of him asleep with his mouth wide open.
Reports also seem to indicate that McIlroy had grown a bit weary of the relationship and the tweet was the final straw, and he actually ended things several weeks ago. Wozniacki was reportedly devastated and continues to display a picture of the couple in happier times on her twitter account.
McIlroy has struggled in the past year with his golf game, his first winless year since turning professional back in 2009. He's gone from being ranked #1 in the world to failing to qualify for the FedEx Cup Tour Championship last month in Atlanta in one short year.
There are some opinions that Wozniacki had become a distraction. Gary Player chimed in with his view on this.
"If you're a young man like Rory, you can't play with worries," Player said. "You can't have managerial problems, you can't have women problems. You've got to be out there and have a free mind. And that's why Arnold [Palmer], Jack [Nicklaus] and I won something like 55 majors between us. Because we had three wives that were very, very special.

McIlroy's management team had no comment about the breakup. McIlroy boarded a plane to Seoul, South Korea yesterday as he begins a month long tour of Asia playing in tournaments that will earn him a guaranteed $3 Million in appearance fees. He tees it up at the OneAsia Korea Open starting this Thursday.
