How the Irish Independent's Karl MacGinty broke the story last May
Golfer Rory Mcllroy seen out walking around town on the day that news that he has split from Horizon Sports management and set up his own management company called Rory Mcllroy Incorporated.

RORY McIlroy has been hailed as golf's Golden Child and the natural successor to Tiger Woods, but following his announcement that he has officially terminated his contract with Horizon Sports Management and become 'Rory McIlroy Incorporated', his problems may only be just beginning.

A golfing prodigy since the age of two, the 24-year-old from Holywood in Co Down enjoyed a meteoric rise to the top of the sport that has not been without its share of spectacular speed bumps.

Less than two years ago, he won his first Major by eight shots and then shocked his veteran British agent Chubby Chandler just five months later by announcing that he was dumping him to join boutique Dublin agency Horizon Sports Management.
