• One airline staff member suggested he 'used a hire set'
England’s Chris Wood WILL be teeing it up at the Masters with his own clubs this week, just days after it was suggested he use a hire set.
Not ideal when you’re about to play in the Masters but as Chris Wood explained to Phil Casey of the Press Association (@pcaseysafc), he was able to sort the situation with a little help from sponsor Mizuno.
“They were left in Atlanta airport and weren’t even going on the next flight,” said Wood. “I don’t really know what happened. It’s the first time it’s happened to me, but it’s not the week you want it to happen.
“Mizuno have their base in Atlanta and luckily went and got them for me and I got them Sunday lunchtime. It’s not really done me any harm and the first phone call (to the airline) was interesting.
“I didn’t drop the Masters bomb straight away. I said I need them for my work, I need them next week and she said if you can hire a set we’ll refund you the money. And I didn’t really have a response to that.”
