Rory McIlroy: Bad Luck Continues as McIlroy's Clubs Are Lost in Transit
Rory McIlroy Can't Buy A Break As His Golf Clubs Are Lost By An Airline On A Recent Trip
On Sunday at Augusta National, we all felt for Rory McIlroy.
McIlroy, who led the entire way, collapsed in a meltdown of epic proportions, flaming out like few ever have on the final 18 of a major.
Afterward, the young golfer handled the collapse with dignity and poise, earning him a lot of fans in the process. This isn't his first period of struggles in the spotlight and they likely won't be the last either, however, plenty of people eagerly await the day when he gets over the top and wins a major.
Well before he can do that, he may need another set of clubs.
In something that could only happen to McIlroy at this point, his clubs were lost by an airline as he headed to his next tournament.
"Hopefully, they turn up tonight and I'll be ready to go tomorrow," McIlroy said at a press conference. "It's one of these things you can't help it. Going through so many time zones and so many connecting flights, your bags are going to get lost sometimes."
Honestly, after the way he played on Sunday, if I were him, I'd never want to see those clubs again. I'd have gone out and bought a whole new set of clubs and hoped that they brought me better luck than the old ones did last Sunday at Augusta.
Despite the setback, McIlroy is ready to go and still had to answer questions about his collapse at the Masters. The sad truth is that in all likelihood, McIlroy will ever be able to escape that meltdown. It's sad but true.
Eventually, McIlroy will win a major, he's simply too talented not to, but until that moment, he's going to be reminded of that failure at every turn, and that's something that you don't want to wish on any athlete.
