According to the court filing, McIlroy filed for divorce on Monday, May 13, 2024. Despite the personal turmoil, he focused and won the Wells Fargo Championship over the weekend.

"I thought winning the [British] Open Championship a few weeks ago had sort of put me on a higher level in this game,'' McIlroy said at the time.

"But then to win a fourth major here, to be one behind Phil, one behind Seve [Ballesteros], level with Ernie [Els], level with Raymond Floyd; I mean, I never thought I'd get this far at 25 years of age.

Ending on Amicable Terms

The split also comes just two days before the PGA Championship at Valhalla, Kentucky. McIlroy is among the favorites to win the Wannamaker Trophy, thanks to his recent uptick in performance.

Both parties agreed to a prenup on March 17, 2017, and the filing says "the court should determine that the Prenuptial agreement is valid and enforceable", and both parties should comply.

Both McIlroy and Stoll may need to adhere to the terms of their prenuptial agreement, though the specific details of the agreement have not been disclosed for privacy reasons.

The filing states that both parents "have the ability" to provide support for their child, and that support should be determined "in accordance with the Florida Child Support Guidelines." That would also include health insurance for Poppy.
