It’s been a tough few weeks for Rory McIlroy.
Last month he broke up with fiance Caroline Wozniacki (by the way, it’s not too late to wager on who he will date next); he finished tied for 23rd in this weekend’s U.S. Open at Pinehurst, N.C.; and now United Airlines has lost his golf clubs.
McIlroy, plans to play in this weekend’s Irish Open, which starts Thursday at Fota Island Resort in Cork.
It’s kind of a homecoming, you know, since he is from Northern Ireland.
Well, he arrived fine, but his clubs are MIA.
Hey @united landed in Dublin yesterday morning from Newark and still no golf clubs… Sort of need them this week… Can someone help!?

Perhaps he shoulda flown Atlanta’s hometown airline Delta? But the good news is United has located McIlroy’s clubs and will deliver them tomorrow – which means he will only miss today’s practice round.
He does have an offer to borrow a pair:
