Twitter is always best when something ridiculous happens. It's not the great moments that really get the social media world flowing but rather the absurd.

In Friday's case, Rory McIlroy withdrew from the Honda Classic because of "wisdom tooth pain."

Let's walk through the way the day unfolded:


More weird.


He'll be here all year.


Hah, true.

Wait .... what?!

So it begins ...

More reasonable?

Not me.

Fellow golfer.


This is actually true.


I do, too!

Haha, nice.

Where can I buy one?

We're all done here.

Finally, something from the man himself.

That looks more like a swing-ache.

And, if this is true, shouldn't we be getting one of these babies from McIlroy sometime in the next week?
