McIlroy to buy Florida home near Williams sisters

by: Jonathan Scott February 07, 2013

The couple affectionately—or repulsively, depending on whom you speak to—referred to as "Wozzilroy" has reportedly put down for a $10.9-million mansion (£6.7 milllion) in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Rory McIlroy's lair-to-be, rumored to be shared with Caroline Wozniacki, is near both Venus and Serena Williams' own home and Tiger Woods' abode. Pictures here, including a funny one of the pair walking together—poor McIlroy, belittled by his girl's high heels even though he is, in truth, just a half-inch shorter than her.

The home harbors a "world class" gym, a private dock, six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, and more ... but apparently not even one tennis court, interestingly. Perhaps Wozniacki would prefer a break entirely from the WTA when she's there, or it could be that the pair will add one in at their leisure. Golfers like leisure, as we know. To her credit, Wozniacki has delved into real-estate deals in the past.

Oh, by the by, Tiger Woods' home in the same area? It's a $80-million estate.
