Even with $15 Million on the line, the game of golf might have to take a step back for Rory McIlroy for the time being. On Saturday, McIlroy revealed that his wife Erica and he are expecting their very first child to be born to the world any day.
In his statement, he mentioned that they are soon to be new parents & they are surely super excited. He also added that they have been sharing this wonderful news with family and friends. However, he didn’t think that it was something to be shared publicly as it is something of a private matter for the couple.
While playing for the Northern Trust and the BMW for the past 2 weeks, McIlroy mentioned that he has patiently been waiting for a call from his wide going into labor. And, when that call comes in, he is all prepared to leave the field and go be with his beloved to be present at the moment.
Depending on this timing of his wife’s delivery, McIlroy might have to miss out on the Atlanta Tour Championship over the weekend on Labor Day. Winning this game would have bought him a whopping $15 Million.
