Earlier this week at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, Rory McIlroy sounded like he's finally starting to settle down and get back to work after a busy season off the course in which he signed a lucrative new equipment deal and changed representation. On Thursday, it looked like McIlroy's love life might be settling down as well when girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki showed up to cheer him on in the first round of the tournament. The Guardian has the details:

The latest set of rumors surrounding the supposed break-up of McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki's relationship surfaced last month. Both refused to comment on those stories, but a small sign of their inaccuracy came when McIlroy tweeted in praise of Wozniacki's first tournament victory of the year, at the Luxembourg Open.

Some suggested on Thursday that Wozniacki's visit to the Race to Dubai finale – she was also here last year – confirmed the Dane and her boyfriend are back on. The reality may well be that they were never off.

"It was nice," said McIlroy of Wozniacki's arrival. "She started her pre-season a couple of days ago and was on court this morning at seven o'clock. So she got some practice in before coming to see me. It's good to have her here."

McIlroy shot 71 in the first round on Thursday.
