Rory McIlroy went to Rochester (Yes, Rochester) to see a female friend after coming up short at the Masters

After finishing in fourth place at the Masters, there was no green jacket tour for Rory McIlroy. But the World No. 1 did do a bit of traveling to see a special someone.

The Democrat & Chronicle reports McIlroy was out with Erica Stoll and others in Rochester, N.Y., on Saturday night. McIlroy and Stoll, the PGA of America employee who helped him make his Sunday 2012 Ryder Cup tee time, have been linked since spending New Year's together, according to the Belfast Telegraph. Here are a couple photos of Stoll:

McIlroy's ex-fiancee, Caroline Wozniacki, has been a little more public with her dating life. She was seen sitting with NFL star J.J. Watt during the NCAA Championship Game between Duke and Wisconsin the Monday of the Masters.

By contrast, McIlroy and Stoll have avoided any photographs of them together in public and until now, there was very little proof of them actually dating. But a trip to Rochester?! Yeah, we're taking that as a pretty good sign.
