Parents tell their kids that it's always better to own up to their mistakes, that trying to cover them up with lies will only make things worse.

Rory McIlroy is still only 23 -- still figuring out what it means to be Rory -- and he learned both ends of that ethics lesson last Friday, when he walked off the...
