Tiger Woods answers questions about Rory McIlroy

03:06 PM ET 03.02 | After the second round of the Honda Classic, Tiger Woods had to feel a little bit like Hans Brinker. You remember, he was the kid from Holland who kept putting his fingers in the dam to stop leaks, but ran short of fingers before he ran out of leaks. On Thursday at the PGA National Champion Course, The world's number two golfer stopped the leaks caused by his putter, but picked up a leak in his sand game. It seemed like every time the cameras would switch to Tiger during Friday's second round, his ball was either in a sand trap, in a sand trap under the lip, or in a sand trap buried. On the 13th hole, his ball looked like a fried egg, and by the time Mr. Woods finished breakfast, he would visit the gallery behind the green, and put a double bogey on his scorecard. Unlike Rory McIlroy, who got tired of playing in the sand box (and went home), Tiger stuck around to finish his round of golf, and spent most of his post-round interview trying to answer questions from the press about why Rory withdrew from the tournament, and left the premises.

I would be interested in knowing what Tiger had to say about Rory walking off the course on Friday, but for some strange reason there aren't any quotes attributed to him in this article.

Eldrick probably wishes he was visiting Holland...Red being his favorite color and all.

Rory had a toothache. Must have been pretty bad to leave a tourney as the defending champ. Kid better find himself a new dentist.

Hans Brinker was not the kid who put his fingers in the ****. Rather in the story of Hans Brinker there is another story about the boy who put his fingers in the **** to save the town. Hans Brinkers story is about getting new fancy ice skates. I hate to be a stickler but I detest it when erroneous information gets published.

Brinker then went on to found a very successful chain of restaurants like Chili's and Maggiano's Little Italy.

If that's true then you should stop reading news on the net. Erroneous information is the rule. Isn't it sad when a writer, writing on a computer, with the Internet a key click away, can't be bothered to do a search for accurate data.

Rory is all apologies today.

Leave Eldrick alone--- he has enough of his own problems.... Many!

Tiger has the putter working down in Doral so far.
