Rory McIlroy quashes rumors of split with Caroline Wozniacki

Rory McIlroy says things are just fine with girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki.

"Everything on that front is great," the world's No. 1 golfer said at a news conference Wednesday in Doral, Fla., where he's playing this week in the WGC-Cadillac Championship. "And I look forward to seeing her next week when she gets to Miami" for the Sony Ericsson Open, which begins March 20.

McIlroy was responding to a question about whether his meltdown at last week's Honda Classic -- where he withdrew eight holes into his second round, citing a toothache and not being "in a good place mentally" -- was related to any off-the-course problems. The UK's Independent speculated earlier this week that McIlroy and Wozniacki, who was upset in her first match at the Malaysian Open last week, were on the rocks.

"I've read what's been written," McIlroy said. "Just because I have a bad day on the golf course and Caroline loses a match in Malaysia, it doesn’t mean that we’re breaking up. It's sport."

McIlroy, 23, and Wozniacki, 22, started dating in the summer of 2011, a public courtship during which they’ve made out in front of a team of Ivy League football players, crashed each other’s press conferences and sent out tweets that left even the most cynical in a state of “awwwww.”
