Airline loses clubs, costs golfer shot at U.S. Open qualifying

U.S. Open hopeful Michael Buttacavoli saw his chances of qualifying on Monday dashed – but it had nothing to do with his play.

Buttacavoli was headed to play at the Jupiter Hills Golf Club in Tequesta, Fla. early Monday. He arrived at the airport just fine, however his bags did not, thanks to American Airlines.

The Twitter conversation between Buttacavoli and American is a sad tale.

Of course, American chimed in with the old “apology/non-apology” – given it meant nothing in terms of helping Buttacavoli or even allowed him to retrieve his clubs any quicker.
