Cursed? Wozniacki alters avatar as McIlroy struggles


Coincidence or curse? Or maybe just some rebound humor.

Caroline Wozniacki changed her avatar photo on her Twitter account to one of her in a witches’ costume stirring a potion in a cauldron. Meanwhile, ex-fiancé Rory McIlroy was struggling in Round 2 of the Memorial Tournament.

McIlroy shot 63 in the opening round at Muirfield Village, despite being hampered by an injured left knee. In obvious discomfort on the range Friday morning, McIlroy shot 7-over 43 over his first nine holes. Beginning on the back, he had a stretch of three consecutive double bogeys, on Nos. 13-15, and needed a bunker hole-out at the 16th to avoid dropping more shots.

McIlroy won last week’s BMW PGA Championship on the heels of announcing the end to his engagement. Wozniacki, a former world No. 1 tennis player, was bounced from the first round of this week’s French Open.
