Perhaps, all golf players dread seeing their ball coming away from the hole toward them and losing their clubs before an important tournament. And this is exactly what happened to Brittany Lincicome as she arrived at Geneva’s airport for the Evian Masters and found out that her clubs got lost somewhere along the way to France.
The Internet savvy golfer used social media to seek Iberia Airlines for help. She described the bag and asked the airlines company that she flew with to find it via Twitter. And, surprisingly enough, it worked like a charm. Iberia Airlines found the golfer’s missing bag with the clubs.
However, prior to the problem solution, Brittany Lincicome acted like a professional athlete and devised a backup plan. She contacted her suppliers, Callaway and Adams Golf, and asked them to send her a new set of clubs.
Adams Golf was supposed to ship the 20-year-old golfer an Insight 145 3-wood, Idea Pro Black hybrid, Speedline driver and a few 4-PW irons while Adams Golf’s key rivals Callaway were asked to deliver an Odyssey White Ice 2 putter and X-Forged wedges.
And, in case they did not manage to deliver the clubs in time for the tournament, the golfer planned on using rented golf clubs. Luckily, everything sorted out and ShopRite LPGA Classic 2011 champions used her own clubs to play in the tournament.
