Rory McIlroy seems in great shape all prepared for the upcoming season on the Irish Open, however his hardwok for the tournament in Cork at Fota Island might need to halt for a while, given the situation. After McIlroy’s T-23 finish at the U.S Open 2014, he was on his way all in form for the upcoming Irish Open. Unfortunately, his golf clubs had a different plan altogether. Around 24 hours post the incident; McIlroy tweeted on Tuesday, politely asking the airline about the whereabouts of his golf clubs. The Northern Irish golfer is twenty five at present, tweeted as soon as he landed in Dublin. His tweet, directed towards the United Airlines said that he reached Dublin from Newark yesterday morning, however, there are still no signs of his golf clubs. Afterall, this week, he is sure going to need his clubs.
Without any delay the United Airline responded back to the golfer on Twitter, asking for further details on the lost clubs. Showing their concern for his situation, the airline commented that they very well understand that the clubs hold great value to him and asked for the reference ID on his bag. The airline further asserted that they would definitely follow up.
The Irish Open 2014 is expected to start on Thursday at the Cork, with Rory McIlroy all prepared to bag his maiden victory in the tournament. Back in the US Open in North Carolina at the Pinehurst, McIlroy finishes at the joint rank of 23rd, just fifteen shots behind Martin Kaymer, the runaway winner.
A situation like this has happened to almost all golfers, and if it hasn’t, the golfers should be quite up for it, since it’s bound to happen once.
