Rory McIl­roy filed for divorce from his wife Eri­ca Stoll last week after sev­en years of mar­riage, and the news has come as a sur­prise to their inner circle. 

How­ev­er, a source has now revealed that the cou­ple’s rela­tion­ship had reached a “break­ing point” pri­or to the divorce filing.

Accord­ing to the insid­er, a major point of con­tention in the mar­riage was that Stoll felt “lone­ly” due to McIl­roy’s demand­ing sched­ule on the PGA Tour. The source told Us Week­ly, “Rory was a hard per­son to be mar­ried to.”

The cou­ple, who share a 3‑year-old daugh­ter named Pop­py, had report­ed­ly been “liv­ing sep­a­rate lives” for the past two years as McIl­roy trav­eled for tour­na­ments. Stoll, who pre­vi­ous­ly worked for the PGA, is said to have thrown her­self into par­ent­hood, mak­ing their daugh­ter her top priority.

“She knew what she was get­ting into with his pro­fes­sion, but once they had Pop­py, things real­ly changed and she had a new per­spec­tive,” the insid­er added. “Eri­ca was usu­al­ly absent for most of his tour­na­ments and was real­ly focused on Poppy.”

The divorce fil­ing, which came just three days before the PGA Cham­pi­onship, has sent shock­waves through the golf world. McIl­roy, a four-time major cham­pi­on, has not addressed the split direct­ly, but his absence of his wed­ding ring at last week’s tour­na­ment was a telling sign.

This high-pro­file divorce high­lights the chal­lenges that pro­fes­sion­al ath­letes and their part­ners can face when bal­anc­ing their careers and fam­i­ly life. 

The “break­ing point” in the McIl­roy-Stoll mar­riage serves as a cau­tion­ary tale about the impor­tance of main­tain­ing a strong emo­tion­al con­nec­tion, even in the face of demand­ing sched­ules and exter­nal pressures.
