J.B. Holmes made it to Scotland for the Scottish Open, but his golf clubs didn’t. And he did what any self-respecting person in the 21st century does in that situation, which is tweet at the airline responsible for the lost luggage.
It took two days of really sad tweets directed at Aer Lingus before the clubs were delivered to Inverness, Scotland, but his sticks eventually made it.
Holmes is currently 150th after a first-round 80 at a wind-swept Castle Stuart. He can obviously blame his poor round on his lack of preparation.
Let’s hope his clubs make it next weekend when the four-time Tour winner will turn his attention to Royal Troon and the British Open. In seven starts in the Open, Holmes has two made cuts with a 14th-place finish in 2010 as his best result.
