Golfer Rory McIlroy sells his six-bedroom Florida mansion

Golfer Rory McIlroy has sold his mansion in Palm Beach, Florida, nine months after putting it on the market for $12.9 million.

McIlroy, from Northern Ireland, put the six-bedroom home in Palm Beach Gardens up for sale in December last year, and has now accepted an offer on the house.

He originally bought the home for $9.5 million in 2013, and opted to sell it after moving into a nearby house previously owned by South African golfer Ernie Els.

The property has six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a fully kitted out gym and a pool.

But what makes the house the perfect home for any golf fan is a putting green in the backyard.

Manchester United supporter McIlroy, who earned more than $49,5million (£36million) last year, opted to add a personal touch, hanging a framed football shirt on the wall.

While photos show social areas decorated with a vintage Coca Cola machine and a pool table, it is not known if McIlroy and wife Erica Stoll will be passing these on to the new owners.

The house also overlooks a lake and has a dock, meaning any budding sailors can take full advantage of Florida’s natural geography.

McIlroy put the property on the market eight months after marrying his now-wife Erica Stoll.

The couple first met in 2012. McIlroy had overslept during the Ryder Cup Miracle at Medinah, and Stoll was the PGA employee who came and woke him up.

At the time, McIlroy was still dating Danish tennis player Caroline Wozniacki, but they split after a short engagement in 2014.

McIlroy and New York-born Stoll started dating the following year and married at Ashworth Castle in Ireland on April 22, 2017.

Guests at the wedding included soul legend Stevie Wonder, One Direction’s Niall Horan and singer Chris Martin.
