Rory McIlroy and Caroline Wozniacki are having a rough 48 hours.Today Rory McIlroy walked off the course in the middle of a terrible round.

He later withdrew from the tournament because of “severe wisdom tooth pain” (officially), but told the AP, “I’m not in a great place mentally. I can’t really say much, guys. I’m just in a bad place mentally.”

He looked out of sorts, and a Getty photographer snapped this particularly sad image:

His strange withdraw comes less than 48 hours after girlfriend Caroline Wozniacki lost in stunning fashion in Malaysia.

The player who beat Wozniacki is Qiang Wang, the 186th-ranked player in the world. Wozniacki was up a set and had match point in the second, but lost the third set 6-1.

We aren’t saying there is trouble in paradise for one of the highest-profile couples in sports. But these are two things that happened.

Let’s hope all is well, because they’re great.
