Truth & Rumors: McIlroy's ex denies mortgage rumor

Wednesday June 6th, 2012

Did Rory McIlroy pay off his ex's mortgage? Holly Sweeney, who split with McIlroy last year, says no. But, even in reporting her denial, the Irish Independent sounds skeptical:

She has [the flat] on the market at a cool £660,000. The model said that her and US Open golf champ McIlroy did not buy it - but admitted they did look at it together when they were an item. Holly said that she had a "couple of things going on" which helped her to pay off the massive mortgage. When asked how she did pay it off, she said: "I don't know. I still ask myself the same question. I was just very clever with how I managed everything."

The golf itself was an unforgiving slog across undulating fairways and incredibly slow greens. Teeing off on the first hole, players see a generous fairway bending gently up to an inviting green. On closer inspection, though, the test is much sterner, with white out-of-bounds stakes bordering both sides of the hole, forcing wayward players to replay their stroke, add a penalty and rack up high scores. Out of bounds is considered golf's ultimate design penalty, and most courses use them sparingly, if at all. There, they choke the course's entire 18 holes.Of course, penalties off the fairway are nothing compared with the hardship endured by ordinary North Koreans. People are forced to follow a prescribed path of loyalty to their country and to the ideology of its founding father, Kim Il Sung. Those who violate the will of the ruling family face severe retribution. Scores of defectors have documented the hardships of labor camps where political dissidents are sent for even the tiniest hints of contrarianism.
