PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. – Rory McIlroy abruptly walked off the course Friday at the Honda Classic, telling reporters who followed him to his car he’s “not in a good place mentally.” An hour later, he attributed his withdrawal to a sore wisdom tooth.
It raised serious questions about golf’s No. 1 player with the Masters just more than a month away.
McIlroy already was 7-over par through eight holes of the second round when he hit his second shot into the water on the par-5 18th at PGA National. He shook hands with Ernie Els and Mark Wilson and was headed to the parking lot before they even finished the hole.
“There’s not really much I can say, guys,” McIlroy told three reporters before he drove away. “I’m not in a good place mentally, you know?”
He said there was nothing wrong physically. When asked about his swing, the 23-year-old from Northern Ireland replied, “Yeah, I really don’t know what’s going on.”
…there are somethings you just can never learn in life, my cute “golf boy”…!
[-] one of these things is that sometimes, you have to ditch all things that might be causing you trouble or problems…!
[-] secondly, that we all are exposed to the fortunes of time, ill-fate, doom, and gloom…!
[-] thirdly that money does not buy it all in life…!
[-] fourthly that there are times when there is nobody to go to for help…!
[-] fifth but not last, a lot of people when loosing have to recur to illegal sources of money…!
[-] sixth and not sixtina[Sistine], when you brushed near somebody that has nothing to loose, it could be your last time…!
