Stoll was handed the legal documents by Carl Woods — a former Palm Beach police officer, who now runs a private practice, CW Services & Associates, that serves the legal community — at 10:30 a.m. May 13, according to the summons.

In it, Woods described Stoll as a white woman with blonde hair, in her thirties, thin and between 5 feet 7 (170.18 cm) and 5 feet 8 (172.7 cm) tall.

McIlroy digitally signed the divorce papers while playing in the Wells Fargo Championship at Quail Hallow in North Carolina, which he won, on May 9, according to court documents.

The 35-year-old Northern Irishman filed the documents in Palm Beach County Court through attorney Thomas Sasser, who represented Tiger Woods in his high-profile divorce from Elin Nordegren in 2010.

According to the documents, Stoll has 20 days to file a written response to McIlroy’s petition with the circuit court clerk from the day it was served on her.

“One phone call will not protect you,” the summons reads. “Your written response, including the case number above and the names of the parties, must be filed if you want the court to hear your side of the case.

“If you do not file your response on time, you could lose the case and your wages, money and property could subsequently be confiscated without further notice from the court.

“There are other legal requirements. You may want to call a lawyer right away. If you don’t know a lawyer, you can call a legal advice service or legal aid office (listed in the telephone book).”

Stoll has yet to respond to McIlroy’s divorce filing from May 26, when the report was published.

McIlroy and Stoll are seeking split custody of their daughter Poppy, now 3, who they welcomed in August 2020, according to her divorce filing.

A week after the split was made public, a report from The daily mail he said that McIlroy and CBS reporter Amanda Balionis were “the point” of the PGA Tour and that the two were sparking romance rumors.

The couple is yet to address that relationship.

McIlroy’s camp released a statement the moment the split with Stoll became public that “underlined Rory’s desire to ensure this difficult time is as respectful and amicable as possible.”

His team added that they would not comment further on the matter.

McIlroy will compete in this week’s RBC Canadian Open, which runs until June 2 at Hamilton Golf and Country Club in Hamilton, Ontario.
