Girlfriend Holly's sweet plans for latest silverware

Rory McIlroy's girlfriend Holly Sweeney has sweet plans for his US Open trophy.

The 20-year-old student and cheerleader stunned fans by filling a crystal vase he won for shooting the lowest round at the US Masters last April with Skittles.

And now, from the comfort of the co Down mansion which she shares with McIlroy, she's taken to musing about what she should use to fill his first Major silverware.

The proud University of Ulster student, who has been dating the golf prodigy for more than six years, had been feverishly watching her other half's record-breaking performance.

"So yeah, the Masters crystal for the lowest round deserved skittles. What do you fill the US Open Trophy with," she joked online last night after her beau's historic win.

Proud Holly was clearly thrilled with his success as she gushed: "My fabulous boyfriend has played flawlessly all week.

"Drink up Northern Ireland, he's done us proud. Here's to the sick days tomorrow.

"Wooooooo half 2, champagne flowing. So happy for the curly one."
