Rory McIlroy is playing in this week’s Irish Open. The world No. 6 arrived in County Cork without incident on Monday, but the same can’t be said for his clubs – they never made it across the Atlantic. You can probably relate.
He expressed his displeasure with United Airlines on Twitter on Tuesday morning:
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
Not surprisingly, the issue was resolved shortly, and, according to United, McIlroy will be reunited with his sticks before the start of the Irish Open:
@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
Hey, if nothing else, this very public call-out should be worth a few MileagePlus Awards points, right?
Update: McIlroy has been reunited with is clubs. He tweeted the following Wednesday morning.
