World No 1 Rory McIlroy apologised yesterday for walking off the course during his second round at last week's PGA Honda Classic

On the eve of playing his first round at the $8.75 million World Golf Championships Cadillac Championship at Doral alongside World No 2 Tiger Woods and England’s Luke Donald, McIlroy said he made a big blunder by leaving early. McIlroy said: “I realised pretty quickly that it wasn’t the right thing to do. No matter how bad I was playing, I should have stayed out there.”

Starting on the back nine in his second round last week, McIlroy had two bogeys, a double bogey and a triple bogey before hitting his tee shot at the 18th into the water and walking off the course. “I wasn’t in a good place with my golf game. My head was all over the place. It was a mistake. Everybody makes mistakes. Most of my mistakes are in the public eye. I’m 23. I’m still learning. I have learnt from it and it won’t happen again.”
