John Daly was left fuming after he successfully made it to the Middle East for the Qatar Masters – but his clubs didn’t.


The American, who receives regular invites to European Tour events, took to Twitter to vent his anger at American Airlines, who, according to Daly, failed to put his clubs on the Qatar Airways flight to Doha.

Clearly concerned by Daly’s complaint, the company tried to quell the situation by following the two-time major winner on Twitter to resolve the issue. But Daly, who turns 50 this April, was having none of it.

The American was clearly ill-prepared for the tournament as a result of not having his clubs with him as he shot a seven-over-par 79 in the first round to sit in a tie for last place.

Daly has played the Qatar Masters three times in the past five years, where he recorded a best finish of fourth back in 2012. Paul Lawrie won the event that year, finishing four shots clear of current US PGA champion Jason Day and Swede Peter Hanson.
