Rory Allegedly Splitting with Longtime Looper

It seems that since his multiple injuries over the last couple years, Rory McIlroy has struggled to find his old groove. With a competitive field, consistently being in contention and occasionally finding the winners circle can be a struggle for the sharpest of players so when there’s something “off” it needs to be addressed immediately.

Latest rumours are that McIlroy has dissolved his relationship with longtime looper J.P. Fitzgerald and that he’ll have a new caddy on the bag for this week’s WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Sometimes a change in atmosphere is needed to shift a player’s game and perhaps Rors thinks this will be the necessary change.

After Phil and Bones’ split last month this would be the second big player-caddy break-up of the season.
