Rory McIlroy Struggles Since Switching to Nike: Rory McIlroy quit the Honda Classic eight holes into the second round on Friday, marking three disappointing tournaments in a row since he switched from Titleist to Nike equipment. He was seven over and had just put his second shot on the ninth in the water. "A tough day made impossible by severe tooth pain," he wrote on Twitter. "Was desperate to defend title but couldn't play on. Gutted."
