Rory McIlroy has called off his engagement to former world tennis number one Caroline Wozniacki and within hours of the announcement Irish bookmakers Paddy Power were taking bets on his next girlfriend.

The favourite to be McIlroy's next love interest is an old flame, Holly Sweeney.

The 24-year-old dated the famous golfer for six years before their relationship ended in 2011.

Irish model/singer Nadia Forde is next in the betting at 6/1 with Miss Ireland Aoife Walsh at 10/1.

Wozniacki's fellow tennis star Serena Williams is 100/1 while Tiger Woods ex-wife Elin Nordegren is priced at 275/1.

Bookmakers have increased the price on Rory McIlroy winning the BMW Championship at Wentworth this week to 14/1 following the break-up. He had been the favourite for the event before the shock announcement.
