Airline loses, then finds Rory's clubs
Rory McIlroy has a problem many frequent fliers face every day: Lost luggage.
But in this case, McIlroy was missing his golf clubs. That's a pretty big problem for a professional golfer.
McIlroy apparently flew from Newark, N.J., to Dublin on a United flight. But his clubs weren't in the cargo hold when the plane landed.
Here's Rory's tweet:
Hey @united landed in Dublin yesterday morning from Newark and still no golf clubs... Sort of need them this week... Can someone help!?

The good news? It appears United has located McIlroy's clubs and they should be en route.
@McIlroyRory We have good news. Your clubs will be in tomorrow and we'll deliver them to the tournament for you. ^JH

Unfortunately, that still means McIlroy lost a lot of time to practice with his own equipment.
