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:




The good news? It appears United has located McIlroy's clubs and they should be en route.




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