When you absolutely, positively have to get to Pinehurst, N.C., overnight, why not hop on a FedEx plane?

According to a tweet from Rickie Fowler, that's what he, Kevin Tway and Chesson Hadley apparently did Sunday after the final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic in Memphis. Check out the selfie:

 

 

 

And Ian Poulter is apparently getting a lift as well.

 

 

 

Memphis is FedEx's world headquarters, so the company provided a private jet for the PGA Tour pros to make their journey just that much easier. Certainly beats driving a rental car the 700-plus miles from western Tennessee to the Sandhills of North Carolina.

At least they didn't have to ride in the cargo hold.
