The golf star, 35, was first linked to Stoll in 2014 — months after he broke off his engagement to tennis star Caroline Wozniacki.

The former flames met at the Ryder Cup when Stoll worked as a PGA transport official.

“Erica that week was always the one that was checking us in and out. She was there at transportation, so she was always in the car park over there (by the clubhouse),” McIlroy said in a 2019 interview, NBC Sports reported.

“But yeah, it’s still cool to look around and think about that week, and obviously everything that’s happened since then. It’s pretty cool," he added.

In May 2015, McIlroy spoke to the Times of London about Stoll after keeping mum for some time. "I am very happy in my love life. We haven't really been putting it out there. She is from America, which is why I like to spend time in Palm Beach … The past six or seven months have been really nice. That part of my life is going great," McIlroy said.
