McIlroy upset with United Airlines after they lose his clubs
Rory McIlroy will be in the field at the Irish Open this week, but as of right now, his clubs won’t be. Following his T-23 finish at the U.S. Open, McIlroy took the trip over the pond from Newark, N.J., to Dublin, Ireland, on Monday, but his clubs got hung up somewhere along the way.
McIlroy tweeted on Tuesday morning that his clubs haven’t arrived yet, pleading for help from United Airlines.
Hey @united landed in Dublin yesterday morning from Newark and still no golf clubs… Sort of need them this week… Can someone help!?Article continues below ...

He’s absolutely right about needing them this week, and United Airlines understands that. It responded to McIlroy’s tweet, asking him to give the company a follow and send it his bag reference ID.
@McIlroyRory We understand how important your clubs are to you. Please follow and DM us you bag reference ID. We'd like to follow up. ^JH

I’m not so sure that’s exactly "good news" for McIlroy. Maybe he should have taken Greg Norman up on his offer.
“@McIlroyRory: ….and still no golf clubs… Sort of need them this week… Can someone help!?>>WHAT COLOR BAG WOULD U LIKE? EMERALD GREEN?

Golf clubs are tough to travel with, and McIlroy learned that the hard way. If only there was a way to carry your clubs on the plane yourself … oh wait, there is. McIlroy should give the DV8 Sports golf clubs a look. They might have helped.
