Rory McIlroy severs ties with long-time caddie

McIlroy Fitzgerald

Rory McIlroy has parted ways with his longtime caddie, J.P. Fitzgerald, according to a Reuters report which cited an unnamed source.

McIlroy has not commented on the split yet, but is expected to have a new caddie on the bag this week at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. He said, 'You are Rory McIlroy.

There is major news breaking in the world of golf this morning, as Rory McIlroy is splitting with caddy JP Fitzgerald.

The 10-year partnership of Rory McIlroy and JP Fitzgerald is over after the Irishman sacked his caddie. He just sort of reminded me who I was and what I was capable of.

Phil Mickelson and Jim "Bones" Mackay made a decision to end 25 years together.

Protests intensified in May after Maduro called for a rewrite of the country's constitution in a bid to control the ongoing protests against his government.

He told the BBC, "He has taken me from 200 in the world to major champion".

McIlroy finished fourth at the British Open this year and at one point during his opening round was down on himself.

"JP did a great job", McIlroy said after recovering from five over after six to record a one-over round.

He has not won since the Tour Championship last September and missed the cut at the US Open.

McIlroy, who split with Fitzgerald after nine years, four major championship titles, and an X-rated kick in the trousers from his long-time looper at the British Open, needed someone to handle the luggage on an emergency basis and Diamond fit the profile. At least Mickelson replaced him with someone else who knew his game well - his brother Tim, a golf coach in his own right, and manager to Spanish player Jon Rahm. They would all certainly be more what McIlroy needs rather than either his best friend, Harry Diamond, or Niall Horan, the One Direction signer, because it's time for him to get back winning titles again and not turning himself into a celebrity circus.
