World #1 Rory Mcilroy withdraws from the Honda Classic

World #1 Rory Mcilroy withdrew from the Honda Classic golf tournament in Palm Beach Gardens, FL today.  Rory was +7 after eight holes and instead of heading to the tee at the ninth, he headed to his car.  Mcilroy cited a painful wisdom tooth as the reason for his exit, indicating he was due to have the tooth removed in April.  He apologized for not being able to complete his quest to defend his title at the Honda Classic explaining he was simply unable to play threw the pain.  Anyone who has had a toothache can sympathize,  teeth pain ranks right up there with labor pains!  Leaderboard and Tiger watch to follow…
