TMOF promises not to go all TMZ on the impending McIlroy-Caroline Wozniacki nuptials, but inquiring minds might be interested to know that she revealed a few details to the media during the WTA Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships. You know that diamond she has been wearing since Rory got down on one knee in Australia on New Year’s Eve? It tips the scales at 8 carats. (That’s heavier than The Forecaddie’s golf bag, which has 16 clubs and a ball retriever.)
“That’s my lucky number,” she said.“That’s how he picked eight. Very thoughtful. I should have said 18.”
Or 20. Wozniacki also let slip that the happy couple have set a date and location for the big day.When asked if it was scheduled for this year, she smiled and said, “You never know.”
Something tells The Forecaddie that they won’t be exchanging vows during the Sept. 26-28 window. If the big date somehow were to fall that week, U.S. Ryder Cup captain Tom Watson might just spring for the flowers and bubbly!
