McIlroy and caddie J.P. Fitzgerald split!

After Phil and Bones split earlier in the year it looks like another major partnership is over, with reports that Rory and his long time caddie J.P. Fitzgerald have parted ways.

Unconfirmed reports from this Reuters article claim Rory has fired him, with Rory likely to make a statement upon his arrival to Firestone Country Club in Akron, Ohio for this weeks WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

With Fitzgerald on the bag Rory went from 200 to World Number 1, and the partnership won 4 majors, although 28 year Rory’s last Major was the 2014 PGA Championship, a drought he hopes to change at Quail Hollow in 2 weeks!
