Martin Laird tied the course record at the Texas Open in San Antonio with a 9-under-par 63 to hold off Rory McIlroy and earn his first PGA Tour win in  more than two years.

The world’s #2 golfer, McIlroy, began the day at 6 under before shooting a 66 to finish two shots back and finish second, his best finish of 2013.

Billy Horschel, Jim Furyk and Charley Hoffman all tied for third.

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.

Tiger Woods on the heels of Pettersson after one round of PGA Championship


Carl Pettersson made three birdies on the par-5′s to grab a one-shot lead on Gary Woodland, Rory McIlroy, Gonzalo Fernandez-Castano and Alex Noren at the PGA Championship on Kiawah Island, S.C.

A surprise on the leaderboard was John Daly, who had been an after-thought in recent years on the PGA Tour. Daly, shockingly won this same tournament in 1991, opened with a 68. He hasn’t won a tournament since 2004, but has renewed vigor in his life and golf game these days.

The PGA Tour’s only three-time winner in 2012, Tiger Woods is making noise as well.

Woods hit 10 of 18 greens and nine of 14 fairways and connected on one birdie on the four par-5 holes. He made 22 putts and is three shots back of Pettersson and one behind Daly.

Woods is trying for his 15th major win, 75th on the PGA Tour and 102nd overall as a pro.

Tiger Woods tied Jack Nicklaus for all-time PGA Tour wins with 73 at the Memorial Tournament back in June.

With his latest win on Sunday, he now has 74 wins and has passed his golfing idol. He is now 8 wins behind Sam Snead who has 82.

Woods held off  Bo Van Pelt on the back nine of the Blue Course at Congressional Country Club on Sunday to win the AT&T National in Bethesda, Maryland.

In this comeback season for Woods, she has risen to number-4 in the world golf rankings behind Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood.

With his final-round of 2-under par 69, Woods beat the scrappy Van Pelt by two shots and became the first golfer to earn three wins on Tour this season. Adam Scott finished third at 5-under-par 67 on Sunday.

In his career, this is the 12th time that Woods has won at least three times. He has three wins in his last seven starts.

Woods went 41 holes without a bogey until needing six strokes to get off the par-5 16th. He took the outright lead by making a 6-foot putt for par on the 17th as Van Pelt made bogey. Bogeys on the last three holes hurt Van Pelt’s chances.

Dustin Johnson back in form; wins St. Jude Classic in Memphis

There was a six-week period this year, when PGA Tour golfer Dustin Johnson could not swing a golf club, more less win a tournament.

He returned to the Tour after the six-week hiatus, and competed well in the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio, where he tied for 19th place.

The injury occured in early March at his home while lifting a jet ski. The result was a pulled muscle in his lower right back.

Johnson seems to be back on his game as he won the St. Jude Classic on Sunday in Memphis, Tennessee, in his second event. He carded a 4-under-par 66 to hold off John Merrick by one stroke.

Merrick remains winless in 154 PGA Tour starts. He shot a 69 on Sunday.

Davis Love III shot a 69 and tied for third with Nick O’Hern (69), Chad Campbell (68) and Ryan Palmer (66) at 273.

Rory McIlroy shot a 69 and tied with three others at 274.
