It certainly looks like Rory McIlroy has a type.

The champion golfer (25) was seen embracing a mystery brunette while out partying at Manchester's five star Lowry Hotel in the wee hours of Sunday morning.

It looks as if McIlroy is still celebrating winning two majors in the last month alone, adding his first PGA Championship - his fourth major championship of his illustrious career.

The newly single sports superstar split from tennis pro fiancee Caroline Wozniacki three months ago and while he has been linked to dark-haired Irish models Nadia Forde and Sasha Gale, he has maintained he's still a single man.

But from the look of these photos, perhaps he's moving on.

Rory was spotted nuzzling with the brunette beauty, who proudly showed off her figure in a white bodycon dress,  in the plush hotel's reception.

Earlier in the night, he was spotted holding hands with a blonde friend as they made their way into the hotel with the group.

The Northern Irish golfer was in Manchester to show off his tropgy at Old Trafford for Manchester United's opening game with Swaneea.
