Rory Can't Catch a Break It's been a rough ride to Malaysia for Rory McIlroy. The young star has taken his Masters disappointment in stride and even shared a chummy ride to his next tournament with the world's-happiest man, Charl Schwartzel, but according to the UK's Telegraph not all of the 21-year-old phenom's possessions made the trip.
Just days after his Masters meltdown Rory McIlroy arrived in Malaysia ahead of the Open to find his clubs were missing.
Despite saying he would learn vital lessons from his Masters collapse it seems McIlroy's rotten luck has followed him to the other side of the world where he finds himself club-less.
"It hasn't happened often, its one of these things you can't help it, going through so many timezones and so many connecting flights your bags are going to get lost sometimes," McIlroy said.
"Hopefully they turn up tonight and I'll be ready to go tomorrow.
Much was made in golf’s semi-offseason when the likes of Lee Westwood, Rory McIlroy and PGA Champion Martin Kaymer opted to renege or decline their PGA Tour membership for 2011. Several of the sport’s big names would not be playing more than 9 times in the States.After that, the PGA Tour policy board created an exemption which would allow top nonmembers to compete in The Players Championship in May. It still was not enough of a carrot for Lee Westwood or Rory McIlroy, both under the management of Chubby Chandler.Though McIlroy came up short at the Masters, another of Chandler’s clients won. And Charl Schwartzel will join buddy Louis Oosthuizen, the aforementioned Kaymer and US Open winner Graeme McDowell in the European version of The Players, the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, May 26-29.It’s the first time in the event’s history, dating back to 1972, that all four active major winners will compete in the tournament.year's richest tournament Stray Passes
