Remember when singer Dave Matthews hitchhiked to his concert last Saturday after getting a flat tire on his bicycle?

Well, now Matt Kuchar can relate.

According to a report by Golf Channel, Kuchar had arranged for a car to pick him up Tuesday morning and take him to Muirfield, which is near the farmhouse where Kuchar is staying this week for the Open Championship.

But when the ride didn't show up on time, Kuchar decided to thumb a ride from a passerby. After walking down the main road and waiting as a few cars passed him, Kuchar finally got a car to stop and give him a lift.

Problem solved.
