McIlroy tight lipped over management situation

7:39 am on 23 May 2013

The world golf number two Rory McIlroy has refused to confirm reports that he's parted company with his management group, Horizon Sports.

Fellow Northern Irishman Graeme McDowell suggested at last week's World Match Play Championship in Bulgaria that McIlroy had split with Horizon.

But McIlroy told reporters on the eve of the European Tour's PGA Championship at Wentworth in England he couldn't comment on the speculation at this point, but the truth would come out one day.

The 2012 Player of the Year hinted some initial friction had developed between him and his friend McDowell but they'd smoothed over their differences earlier this week.
