Wozniacki watches McIlroy from inside the ropes in China in 2011
Unlike the rule applied to every other WAG (wives and girlfriends) — with the exception of team events like the Ryder Cup and the Presidents Cup — tennis pro Caroline Wozniacki often walks inside the ropes with her now-fiancee Rory McIlroy. This hadn’t drawn too much attention until last week at the Dubai Desert Classic, particularly on Sunday when McIlroy was in contention.

Rory playing the supportive boyfriend

77-year-old South African native Gary Player is undoubtedly a bit old school. A few months ago, he made “controversial” comments on Rory McIlroy’s slumping season, saying he needed to find “the right wife” — unlike tennis player Caroline Wozniacki, Rory’s current girlfriend of two-plus years.

Well, Player, a nine-time major champ, spoke out again in an interview with ESPN’s Sportscenter and didn’t back off from his earlier remarks:

Cute alert!

Cute alert!

It’s Wednesday before The Masters and it feels like Christmas Eve. I’ve been trying to explain that to my roommate, a non-golfer, who knows nothing about the game. She is insisting it can’t be Christmas tomorrow without presents and she will be incredibly disappointed if she doesn’t wake up to a tree with pretty lights with gifts underneath it.

“Yeah, dream on,” I told her.

Adorable couple!

Adorable couple!

Former world no. 1 tennis player Caroline Wozniacki donned a white jumpsuit and caddied for her boyfriend Rory McIlroy in the Par 3 Contest, which takes place the day before the Masters kicks off at Augusta National. Wozniacki was given the opportunity to hit a shot, and well, let’s just say she would have been better off serving it or hitting a moonball.

C’mon, Rory, I thought you were giving Caroline lessons! In her defense, it’s pretty nerve-wracking to stand up there in front of thousands of people. Here’s the video of Wozniacki testing the waters:

Wozza in Augusta to support Rory

Wozza is in Augusta this week cheering on Rory

Caroline Wozniacki is spending the week in Augusta to support her boyfriend Rory McIlroy. On Sunday evening, she revealed to fellow Dane Thorbjorn Oleson, who is making his Masters debut, on Twitter that she would be caddying for McIlroy in Wednesday’s Par 3 Contest.

Strangely, she has since deleted her reply to Oleson, but the tweet still appears in the conversation thread via Oleson’s account. Here’s a screenshot:

Rors’ growing pains

Rory McIlroy felt the heavy expectations and pressures as the world’s No. 1 golfer weighing down on his 23-year-old shoulders and he had a meltdown, resulting in a bad decision in the heat of the moment. He likely thought the world was closing in on him and he just wanted to escape when he walked off the course last Friday at the Honda Classic.

As (I) expected, McIlroy was open and candid, admitting to his mistake and taking responsibility for his abrupt, un-Rory-like withdrawal in his press conference on Wednesday morning at Doral.

Still BFFs and almost neighbors in South Florida

Still BFFs and almost neighbors in South Florida

Last Thursday after both were eliminated in the first round of the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship, world No. 1 Rory McIlroy was wheeling his travel bag out to the parking lot when he saw world No. 2 Tiger Woods was putting his in the trunk of his car. The two acknowledged each other in a “yeah, this sucks, I’ll see you later, man” kind of way, and then later Tiger texted Rory and invited him to play at The Medalist on Sunday morning.

Dealmaker: Musta been the putting green!

Okay, considering world’s No. 1 golfer Rory McIlroy recently signed a deal with Nike reportedly worth $200 million, it’s actually not absurdly ginormous or extravagant (from what I can see of the pictures). In fact, it’s rather modest compared to his new BFF  Tiger Woods’ Jupiter home which is larger than Planet Jupiter.

Golf’s newly-anointed prince McIlroy recently purchased a luxurious home in Palm Beach Gardens with a price tag around $11 million, according to reports.
