Golfer Rory McIlroy, a two-time major winner, has ended his engagement to former world number one Danish tennis player Caroline Wozniacki.

After announcing their engagement to their million plus Twitter followers last New Year's Eve, the couple had only a few days ago sent out wedding invitations.

McIlroy takes the blame
But now the 25-year-old golfer has issued a brief statement through his Dublin-based communications consultants that the match is over.

"The problem is mine," McIlroy said. "The wedding invitations issued at the weekend made me realise that I wasn't ready for all that marriage entails."

Motherhood will have to wait
Wozniacki, 23, had earlier this month expressed her wish to start a family with her fiancé in an interview with Lime magazine.

 “I want to be a relatively young mother, and I do not see it as being too far in the future,” she told the publication.
