LONDON (AP) - U.S. Open champion Rory McIlroy has split from agent Chubby Chandler.

The 22-year-old Northern Irishman had been represented by Chandler’s International Sports Management since turning professional in 2007.

ISM said Friday that it took “great pride … in guiding him successfully through his formative years as a professional golfer.”

Chandler added: “Onward and upwards. We have had a quite brilliant year.”

Third-ranked McIlroy hasn’t commented on the announcement.
