Rory McIlroy is in New Haven, Connecticut to support his girlfriend, Caroline Wozniacki as she plays the New Haven Open. McIlroy finally confirmed his relationship with Wozniacki yesterday. Via Golf.com:
He also told reporters it would be fine to refer to her as his girlfriend, ending one of the worst kept secrets in sports. He attended her second-round match here Tuesday, and has been seen by her side for weeks.
“Why it’s going so well is that we have so much in common,” he said. “Obviously, different sports, but we’re pretty much in the same position at a young age and we can talk about things that probably a lot of 21, 22-year olds can’t talk about. It’s nice to have someone that sort of understands what you’re going through.”
