What happens when you fall off the horse??? You get on a model ... at least that's what recently single golf superstar Rory McIlroy is reportedly doing out in Ireland.
The two were looking "very comfortable" together at a bar and a restaurant together over the weekend ... so says the Belfast Telegraph.
Forde had denied dating Rory in the past ... but now it seems like they're more than just friends -- and things are getting so "relationshipy" that a U.K. gambling site has placed 6 to 1 odds on Nadia being Rory's next official girlfriend.
Seems like a good bet.
