PGA Tour's official airline loses Russell Henley's clubs

CNBC's Phil LaBeau has this week's most laugh-and-cringe-inducing story — so far, anyway.

They temporarily lost my clubs twice in two years and I never connect. After the last time, I no longer take my good putter when I am checking my clubs. The rest of my bag is reasonably new so I could replace lost clubs with similar models, but my putter had been discontinued so it doesn't make the trip.
I try to take direct flights when possible. I also pack my golf shoes, golf glove and a couple balls in my carry-on so at least I have those if I need to rent.
So far my handful of major golf trips have resulted in my clubs arriving with me. One member of our Scotland trip (scratch handicap) had to rent clubs AND shoes (yeech!) the first 48 hours.
deltas never lost my golf gear but they've lost my ski gear TWICE
As a Georgia boy headed to Augusta to play the Masters, I'm surprised he wasn't flying private. He needs to work on his connections.
