When you let airlines handle your valuables, you do so at your own peril.
Champions Tour pro Kenny Perry learned that lesson the hard way when he went to the driving range in preparation for the Boeing Classic at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge.
"I pulled my clubs out and Delta broke my driver, the one I won all of my tournaments with this year," Perry said to the Seattle Times. "It broke the head right off the shaft. I’m very upset at this point."
"I represent Southwest Airlines and it’s in a Southwest (bag), and I flew Delta out here from New York and they snapped my driver. I’m pretty bummed out."
"I’ve been bombing it," Perry said. "I’ve been taking advantage of all the short holes and the par-5s. But that’s the only driver I’ve used all year."
"But shafts don’t duplicate," he said. "As much as they say they’re the same, they’re not the same. So now I have to get my confidence back off the tee because that’s been my bread and butter this year."Photo by Chris Condon/Getty Images
