Is PGA Championship winner Rory McIlroy literally giving the golf world a sign that he's moving from Northern Ireland -- and possibly to Florida?

The Independent reports McIlroy's luxury home at Moneyreagh in the hills above Belfast is for sale with a £2 million ($3.2 million U.S.) asking price. The 14-acre property includes a five-bedroom house, gymnasium and a practice area with a putting green and driving range.

The house is linked to McIlroy's tabloid-friendly relationships with former live-in Holly Sweeney and current girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki, a tennis star who recently showed off her own underwear line.

McIlroy's realtor expects great interest in the property.

Michael Rodgers, a partner at Rodgers & Brown, the Holywood, Co Down, firm of estate agents which is handling the sale, said: "I would say interest in the house will be extremely good, both locally and potentially worldwide. We will have to wait and see."

The "For Sale" sign might be McIlroy's unofficial exit sign for Northern Ireland.

The sale will heighten speculation that McIlroy will now seek to live abroad permanently, possibly Florida - especially after he caused public controversy in Northern Ireland and the Republic earlier this month when he indicated he would play golf for Team GB in the 2016 Rio Olympics.
