London: US Open champion Rory McIlroy`s relationship with his girlfriend Holly Sweeney is over, the Northern Irishman`s management team said.

"Rory McIlroy`s long-term relationship with Holly Sweeney came to an amicable end before the British Open," an International Sports Management spokesman (ISM) said.

The 22-year-old McIlroy, who won the US Open last month, finished down the field at the British Open on Sunday in a share of 25th place. The tournament was won by his ISM stablemate and fellow countryman Darren Clarke.
