Moving on? Rory, FHM model party into early morning, drive off together

For anyone wondering how long it would take Rory McIlroy to move on from Caroline Wozniacki, you may have your answer.
And if reports are correct, he's gone from professional tennis player to FHM model.
According to multiple reports, McIlroy and Irish model / singer / aspiring celebrity Nadia Forde spent one night — and early morning — last weekend at a trendy bar in Dublin, dancing and partying with friends while piling up quite the tab before leaving the place together.
The two were "getting close" all night, sources told the Belfast Telegraph, adding that "Rory’s group had about 15 lads with them and there were a few other girls as well. But Rory and Nadia were chatting all night."
According to the Daily Mail, McIlroy picked up the entire €7,000 (more than $9,500) tab before leaving with only Forde in a chauffeured Mercedes around 3 a.m.
The two have reportedly denied any relationship, though rumors have persisted enough that an offshore betting site has set odds that Forde will be McIlroy's next girlfriend at 6-1. That led Forde, 25, to address the rumors last month in the Sunday Independent.
"I wouldn’t be betting on me if I was anyone going into Paddy Power [the betting site]. He doesn’t even have my phone number. And I don’t have his," said Forde, who was in FHM's sexiest women alive list. "Look, I met him with a gang of friends last October and I haven’t seen him since. It was one of those situations where you have mutual friends and two plus two equals five."
McIlroy, also 25, ended his high-profile relationship with Wozniacki, the 23-year-old Danish tennis star, by putting a high-profile end to their engagement in May.
