So heartbreaking! Five months after his romantic proposal to longtime love and pro tennis player Caroline Wozniacki, pro golfer Rory McIlroy has called off their engagement! What went wrong?

Rory McIlroy has had a major change of heart about taking the next step with his now ex-fiancee, Caroline Wozniacki.

Rory Mcilroy Calls Off Engagement: Caroline Wozniacki Dissed As Couple Splits

Rory released a statement on May 21, explaining that after he and Caroline sent out their wedding invitations this past weekend, he realized that he “wasn’t ready for all that marriage entails.” Seriously, Rory? That’s major diss to your girlfriend of three years!

His full statement read:

The problem is mine. The wedding invitations issued at the weekend made me realize that I wasn’t ready for all that marriage entails. I wish Caroline all the happiness she deserves and thank her for the great times we’ve had. I will not be saying anything more about our relationship in any setting.

Rory did, however, say a few words about their split during a press conference in England on May 21. Rory struggled to keep his composure while discussing the breakup, according The New York Times. He explained that, “Everyone has been through breakups and it’s obviously very, very difficult.”

He also revealed that calling off the engagement was a joint decision.

“It was mutual and amicable and we both thought it was the best for us, the best for both of us,” Rory said. “Time to move on and I think I’ve said all that I need to say.”

Rory and Caroline had been dating since 2011 and he proposed to her in a big way on New Year’s Eve, 2014, in Australia.

Though we’re sure Caroline is absolutely heartbroken over Rory’s diss, he admitted that it was going to be “difficult” for him to play in the upcoming BMW PGA Championship starting on May 22 because of his own sadness over the split.

Let’s hope that Rory and Caroline can both move forward soon!
