Rory McIlroy said “sometimes to preserve a personal relationship you have to sacrifice a professional one” as he explained the reasons behind his split with caddie JP Fitzgerald.

Northern Ireland’s world number four, 28, parted ways with Fitzgerald on Monday, ending a nine-year partnership.

In that time, McIlroy had four major wins, but he is without one since 2014.
