The Irish golfer ended his engagement to the tennis player in May of last year, months before their wedding.

And she found herself back in the headlines after she wished new US Masters Champion Jordan Spieth her congratulations, while many noted he beat her ex to the title in Augusta, Georgia.

"Congratulations to @JordanSpieth on winning @TheMasters! Extremely impressive how he came out firing from the start and never looked back," she wrote this morning, wishing the 21-year-old well on his first major title.

However, she later cleared up that the well wishes weren't a dig at her former fiance, who is in a fresh rivalry with the new Masters victor.

"Tweeps I was congratulating Speith on his win, nothing else.. It's time for some of you to move on from the past. Thank you!"

The Danish athlete regularly supported her ex during tournaments, and last year, she famously sported pink hair as she caddied for the Co Down golfer in Georgia.

Similarly, in 2013, she was on hand to cheer on her former boyfriend of three years.
