McIlroy withdraws in middle of round
By Brian Wacker, PGATOUR.COM

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- Defending champion and world No. 1 Rory McIlroy withdrew before finishing his first nine holes in Friday's second round of The Honda Classic.
No immediate word was given for his withdrawal, though he didn't appear to be injured or sick. A statement is expected shortly.
After hitting his approach shot into the water on the 18th -- his ninth hole of the day -- McIlroy walked off the course and quickly left the course with his coach and caddie.

McIlroy, who started on No. 10, struggled from the start. He nearly hit his approach on the 11th hole into the water before chipping through the green and making double bogey.
Two holes later, he made another bogey after driving it well right and being forced to lay up. He missed a 6-footer to save par.
Things went from bad to worse on the par-4 16th. McIlroy hit his tee shot into the water, took a drop, then hit another into the water before carding a 7.
On the par-3 17th, McIlroy three-putted from just over 40 feet to fall to 7 over through his first eight holes.
His troubles began on his second hole, No. 11, where he nearly hit his approach into the water before chipping through the green and eventually making double bogey.

Two holes later, McIlroy drove it into the right rough and had to lay up. His putt to save par from 6 feet slid past the hole and he made another bogey.
Then things went from bad to worse.
McIlroy drove it in the water on the par-4 16th, took a drop, then hit it in the water again. He made 7.
At the par-3 17th, McIlroy found the green with his tee shot, but three-putted from 42 feet after running his first putt 10 feet past the hole.
This is the first time in McIllroy's career that he has withdrawn from a tournament.

The people in Team McIlroy should advise the kid properly
This cannot go on. If he is not injured, then it's the 6 inches between the ears. If he is not comfortable with these new clubs, don't play any tournament till he is ready, or switch to previous clubs

Tiger took a phased approach and he never switched to the Method putter till not too distant past. He didn't switch it all at one go.

Team Tiger 1 - Team McIlroy 0

Things like this happen to us sometimes. For example I was playing Poresia Sakura 43, then screwed the Orchid Course with a 57. Sad No lost balls in water, no OB but just keep hacking for no reason. Sometimes it seems like there's a bug on your shoulder when you are about to hit a shot. And yes, that's part of golf.

Ha! Ha! Good one bro. He's back from near death experience watching the guillotine drop right in front of him and 9 shots back. Laughing

Well, Rory mentioned that he is suffering from pain due to wisdom tooth. I'm not sure if I can stay focus with the pain.

Anyway, I'm encouraged... If new clubs fitted so thoroughly could cause so much issue to world no. 1, means I'm normal... sunny

I think TW is doing ok with the clubs. And the real issue may not be the clubs but self. Rememver how RM self-destroy himself before he won his first major. And he's not using Nke clubs. I think it's mental. He probably put too much pressure on himself.
