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.

Donald was able to recapture the top spot two weeks later with his win at the Transitions Championship.

Speaking of Woods, he is playing like his old self again.

He made two eagles in the final round and wound up two shots behind, along with Tom Gillis, who birdied the last hole for a 69.

Woods finished at 270, his lowest 72-hole score since he carded a 265 at the 2009 BMW Championship, his last PGA Tour win.
