Bad start to 2013 by McIlroy continues with withdrawal from Honda Classic; Guthrie leads after two rounds

Northern Ireland golf star Rory McIlroy has not had the start to the PGA Tour season that would suit his taste.

In three tournaments, the 23-year-old fan favorite, missed the cut in Abu Dhabi, lost in the first round of the Match Play Championship and in a bizarre twist on Friday, withdrew from the Honda Classic after 26 holes.

Conflicting stories from the tournament said that McIlroy, the world’s top-ranked golfer, mentally was not ready to play golf or he had a tooth ache.

But the fact is, he walked off the course in the middle of the second round at the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

McIlroy was a stunning 7-over-par through eight holes when his second shot went into the water on the 18th hole. He gave his golf club to his caddy, shook hands with his playing partners, turned in the scorecard and walked to the parking lot.

An hour later, his management company issued a statement saying McIlroy was bothered by a sore wisdom tooth.

In other news from the classic, Luke Guthrie shot a 7-under 63 to take a one-shot lead at the halfway point. Guthrie, a University of Illinois product, is at 9-under 131 after two rounds, ahead of Michael Thompson who is second after shooting a 65 on Saturday.

Tiger Woods is nine shots off the lead after shooting his second straight 70 and barely made the cut with a late charge.

Camilo Villegas, the first-round leader, shot a 77 and missed the cut.

Van Pelt leads Quail Hollow; Tiger 9 shots back at 88th

compiled from staff and wire reports

Tiger Woods had one of the worst days of his PGA Tour on Thursday but despite that, he is still only 9 shots back but is in 88th place.

Woods shot a 2-over 74 that left him chasing the cut instead of the leaders at the Quail Hollow Championship. He hit just four of 14 fairways and struggled off the tee throughout the round.

He put tee shots in the water off the 17th and 18th holes and made mistakes at several of the other holes that cost him shots on a day when 66 players were at par or better.

Woods was tied for 88th, nine shots behind Bo Van Pelt, and needs a strong round on Friday to make the cut, something he is not used to. He has not missed the cut in a regular PGA Tour event in five years.

It was Tiger’s worst opening round at a regular PGA Tour event since he shot a 75 at The Players Championship three years ago.

Van Pelt, seeking his first win on the PGA Tour, moved in front with a sparkling 65. Kenny Perry was next at 66 with Camilo Villegas at 65. Phil Mickelson had a 70.
