Airline Loses Rory McIlroy's Clubs
After finishing at the U.S. Open this weekend, Rory McIlroy hopped an airplane across the Atlantic to play in the Irish Open, which starts Thursday at Fota Island Resort in Cork.
Hey @united landed in Dublin yesterday morning from Newark and still no golf clubs... Sort of need them this week... Can someone help!?— Rory Mcilroy (@McIlroyRory) June 17, 2014
It's humbling to know that airline screw-ups happen to the rich and famous as well. The only difference is when we lose our luggage, we don't lose thousands of dollars of equipment. When McIlroy loses his luggage, he loses his fully customized clubs.
United responded two hours later.
@McIlroyRory We understand how important your clubs are to you. Please follow and DM us you bag reference ID. We'd like to follow up. ^JH— United (@united) June 17, 2014
They have 'good' news too.
@McIlroyRory We have good news. Your clubs will be in tomorrow and we'll deliver them to the tournament for you. ^JH— United (@united) June 17, 2014
