Rory McIlroy revealed his fiancée Erica Stoll gets irked by the Northern Irishman’s late night texting sessions with Tiger Woods.
The four-time major champion sat down for an in-depth interview with the Sunday Independent, admitting he’s “drawn towards” his fellow Nike staffer.
“He’s an intriguing character because you could spend two hours in his company and see four different sides to him. When he’s comfortable and he trusts you - and his trust (sensitivity) is way (higher) than mine - he’s great. He’s thoughtful. He’s smart. He reads.
“He can’t sleep so that’s all he does - he reads stuff and educates himself on everything. But he struggles to sleep, which I think is an effect of overtraining, so I tell him to calm down sometimes. He’d be texting me at four o’clock in the morning: 'Up lifting. What are you doing?'"
"Erica actually got pissed off with it. He was texting me in the middle of the night and I was like, 'Tiger is in the gym.'"
McIlroy and Stoll are expected to marry in the spring in Ireland.
