Cape Town - According to multiple news outlets, Rory McIlroy is set to marry Erica Stoll on Saturday, April 22.

The Belfast Telegraph reports the ceremony will take place at Ireland's Ashford Castle in what's being billed as "the wedding of the decade."

"It's a great time in our lives. That's what I'm - the next few weeks it's all about that. I'll come back to the Players refreshed and a married man and start a new chapter in my life."

According to the Golf Digest website, McIlroy also said the couple would go on a 10-day honeymoon "in the middle of nowhere" following the wedding. If they leave the following day, that would still give McIlroy a full week to prepare for the Players Championship, which is May 11-14 at TPC Sawgrass.

McIlroy and Stoll, a former PGA of America employee, got engaged in December 2015.

“They are trying to keep the big day as private as they can, even with all the A-listers invited," an insider told The Irish Sun.

The Irish Sun is also reporting that Coldplay will perform at the reception.
