Rory McIlRoy -- Ditching Caroline Wozniacki Made Me Number One Published: August 12, 2014

The reason Rory McIlroy is kicking every other golfer's ass is simple -- he unloaded that ball and chain, otherwise known as Caroline Wozniacki ... that's how Rory sees it anyway, says TMZ.

McIlroy fired the shot at his ex-fiancee while talking to reporters at the PGA Championship -- which of course he won this weekend. Rory talked about the break-up, saying ... "I think what happened has been for the better in terms of my golf." BOOM.

The 25-year-old #1 ranked golfer in the world said, “I’ve put a bit more time into it and it has refocused me. I mean, what else do I have to do now? I go to the golf course, I go to the gym and it’s just my life at the minute."
