Rory McIlroy has put his £2 million home in Northern Ireland on the market, fueling speculation that the 23-year-old will establish a full-time residence in the United States.
According to the Press Association, McIlroy’s five-bedroom abode, set over 14 acres, is situated in Moneyreagh, outside Belfast. It features a practice area – with putting green and driving range – and gym. He purchased the home in 2009.
McIlroy has a U.S. base in West Palm Beach, Fla., where several other elite players (Tiger Woods, Luke Donald, Lee Westwood, etc.) also reside. McIlroy’s parents, Gerry and Rosie, still live in Northern Ireland.
