Rory McIlroy's grand plans to propose to Caroline Wozniacki at the stroke of midnight on New Year's Eve were ruined by -- what else? -- alcohol.
McIlroy revealed how his marriage proposal went down to Global Golf Post:
"We were on a boat on the harbor. It's a funny story because I wanted to do it at the stroke of midnight because a really drunk guy on the boat jumped in and caused a whole commotion. They sent people to dive in to get him he was so drunk. It was a bit of a nightmare."
Instead, McIlroy popped the question after a long-winded explanation once they got back to the hotel room.
"She said yes," he said. "That was the most important thing." Yes it is, Rory.in late August this year.
