• World No4 will have friend Harry Diamond on the bag for next fortnight
Rory McIlroy has explained how the maintaining of a valued friendship with JP Fitzgerald was key to the Northern Irishman parting company with his caddie of nine years. McIlroy, who refused to rule out a reunion with Fitzgerald, also admitted to unease following terse moments between them in recent times.
News that the world No4 had called time on one of the most high-profile alliances in sport broke on Monday. The four-times major winner, who will have his best friend, Harry Diamond, on the bag for the WGC Bridgestone Invitational this week and the US PGA Championship after that, addressed the matter in full at Akron on Wednesday.
