Being one of the world’s top golfers has its share of perks, among them the cash to purchase a big rock when asking your girlfriend to marry you.

Rory McIlroy didn’t skimp when he proposed to Danish tennis star Caroline Wozniacki on New Year’s Eve in Australia. The Belfast Telegraph reports the Northern Irishman presented her with a diamond ring worth around 120,000 Pounds. For those scoring at home, that’s about $200,000 or 215 Bitcoins, if you prefer your currency to be digital.

Wozniacki showed off her ring during media sessions this week at the Apia International Sydney tennis tournament, where she lost in two sets to Lucie Safarova in the second round. McIlroy is set to make his 2014 debut Jan. 16 at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.

In case you missed it, here is the photo McIlroy tweeted to his more than 1.8 million followers last week to announce his engagement:

I think there is a swoosh visible under the main diamond.

Does not look like a $200K ring. Much like his Nike clubs, Rory appears to have been jipped...

There is noting out there in existence on two legs that is worth that level of expenditure. She is nothing near the qualification of a Goddess... It clear shows that money can literally buy anything...

That ring is out of my pay code. I am more a kinekt gear ring type.

@jradam77 True, but few wouldn't spend it if they had it too spend.  Don't think there won't be a prenup.
