Olympic Golfer Has His Clubs Back

For the first time in 112 years, golf is an Olympic sport again.

For Argentinian golfer Emiliano Grillo, it only felt that long when his clubs went missing while flying to the Summer Olympics in Rio.

That set off a series of hilarious tweets by the 23-year old that, fortunately, came to a happy resolution after less than 24 hours of separation.

The adventure started on Sunday over two airlines – American Airlines and Latam, a South American carrier – and stops in New York, Miami, Sao Paulo and, finally, Rio.

Followed by:

And then, a short while later, a tweet to Latam.

When American Airlines responded to one of Grillo’s tweets, he replied with a sarcastic “Thanks???”

Clearly, however, he was finding some humor in the whole thing.

Or, at the very least, remaining optimistic.

And even invoking the hottest pop culture trend there is.

Finally, the story of a boy and his golf clubs had a joyous ending.
