Erica Stoll and Rory McIlroy are still the main topics on the golf scene following rumors about their divorce. This popular couple has decided to end their marriage after seven years. New reports come day by day with a focus on Rory McIlroy and now his former wife. The latest in the series is one that says Rory McIlroy used a private investigator to serve Erica Stoll divorce papers. 

According to the headlines in the Belfast Telegraph, McIlroy used the weekend break to escape from the headlines and golf, but the primary reason seems to be his friend's wedding. 

Things went so far that McIlroy's private plane was tracked, and he was reportedly in Italy for the wedding. 

Rory McIlroy spoke about his career and future a few days ago at a press conference, but when asked about the divorce, the Northern Irishman declined to comment, intending to keep his private life separate from his professional one. The 35-year-old golfer admitted that his focus is on the future and tournaments, not wanting to delve into details regarding Erica or anything from his private life.

The proceedings were initiated in the Palm Beach County Court by Thomas Sasser. McIlroy chose a lawyer who also represented a golf legend, Tiger Woods, when he also went through the same divorce process with his former wife. Carl Woods served Erica with the summons.

According to reports from BT, Carl Woods received divorce papers on May 13th from Sasser's firm, which were also personally delivered to Stoll at their home a few minutes later. The summons also states that Stoll has twenty days to respond to her husband's petition.

Rory McIlroy and Erica Stoll, after years of love, have apparently decided to bid farewell to each other due to problems that arose in their marriage. It's hard to pinpoint the main reason, but evidently, there were many factors that led to the breakdown of their love. McIlroy is a highly professional man, focused on his career and successes, which could have been one reason why he may not have been fully committed.

However, these are just speculations, and going deeper into this topic is unnecessary, as time will likely reveal what the main obstacle was for them. Headlines come day by day, focusing on various factors that influenced the divorce, but concrete information is still lacking.

McIlroy absolutely has no intention of discussing it, considering that from the beginning of his career, he has highly respected his private life, not allowing anyone to delve into the details of his personal life. And this time is no different.

The document states that no phone call can save Erica, as she must submit a response on time to avoid losing the case. McIlroy's wife finds herself in a peculiar situation and will need to send a response as soon as possible to try to win this case. Furthermore, she has been clearly informed that there are further procedures involving an attorney, whom she can call or not.

"A phone call will not protect you. Your written response, including the case number given above and the names of the parties, must be filed if you want the court to hear your side of the case.

If you do not file your response on time, you may lose the case, and your wages, money and property may thereafter be taken without further warning from the court.
There are other legal requirements. You may want to call an attorney right away. If you do not know an attorney, you may call an attorney referral service or a legal aid office (listed in the phone book.)"
(quoted by Golf Magic).

Rory McIlroy and details

McIlroy, as we've already mentioned, is quietly observing the situation, unwilling to provide any details regarding their divorce. McIlroy is in good form, considering his victory at the Wells Fargo Championship. His intentions, however, are to win a Major in the near future, given that it's been a while since his last Major trophy. His next challenge will be the RBC Canadian Open, where he will be one of the main favorites alongside a few others. 

Rory intends to continue his amazing form and prepare himself in a great way for the Majors. We'll see if the 35-year-old will change his principles and potentially reveal some details about his marriage. At this moment, it doesn't seem like a realistic scenario, but nevertheless, we'll wait and see what the future holds for him. There are already rumors circulating that Rory has found a new love in his life. We'll see how much truth there is to that.
