Fore-Play? Golfer Rory McIlroy Spotted At Dinner With Actress Meghan Markle — Inside The Budding Relationship

It’s been a busy summer for golfer Rory McIlroy. After suddenly dumping tennis pro fiancée Caroline Wozniacki in May, he went on to win the British Open and PGA Championship. Now, RadarOnline.com can reveal, he could be rounding out the season with a new girlfriend — Suits actress Meghan Markle.

Radar has exclusively learned that the pair were spotted out to dinner together at Cipriani Downtown in New York City earlier this month. Though hanging with a group of friends, they sat next to each other for the meal.

Prior to Markle, McIlroy was spotted out on the town with models Nadia Forde and model Sasha Gale.
