McIlroy: I'm NOT engaged

McIlroy watches Caroline train today

Rory McIlroy has said he is NOT engaged to girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki, despite reports in the press that the two were set to tie the knot.

Wozniacki sparked the rumours by wearing a huge sapphire and diamond sparkler on her ring finger at a training session in Brisbane.

In a brief statement today, a spokeswoman for McIlroy said: "On behalf of Rory McIlroy I would like to confirm that he has NOT become engaged to Caroline Wozniacki as was originally reported in Australian press.

"Rory is in Australia to support Caroline before he heads in January to Abu Dhabi."

The two have been an item since 2011. They met at David Haye’s fight against Wladimir Klitschko in Germany.
