Rory McIlroy has not won a major golf tournament since 2014, though the four-time champion is looking to change that on Sunday afternoon.

The 32-year-old golfer is currently tied for second place at the U.S. Open at Torrey Pines in Southern California. McIlroy, won won the U.S. Open in 2011, is at -4 through five holes in the final round on Sunday afternoon.

This could be McIlroy's first major win since getting married.

In 2017, McIlroy got married to his longtime girlfriend, Erica Stoll. McIlroy began dating Stoll, then a PGA Tour employee, in 2015. They got engaged at the end of 2015 and married in a ceremony at Ashford Castle in Ireland 2017.

"Stoll is originally from New York, but she moved with her family to Palm Beach, Florida in her teenage years. She is a former employee of the PGA of America as the Manager of the Championship Volunteer Operations in 2011," Golf Magic reports.

Stoll has often been seen by McIlroy's side during PGA Tour events. Perhaps we'll get to see the couple celebrating on the 18th green on Sunday afternoon.
