Shane Lowry has been reunited with his golf clubs.

The 2019 Open champion's preparations for this week's Wyndham Championship had been disrupted after his clubs were lost en route to the USA.

On Tuesday the Offaly man appealed to Dublin Airport to help find his clubs and was told they were at O'Hare Airport in Chicago.

They were subsequently transported to Greensboro, North Carolina, with the Offaly man posting a triumphant picture of himself hoisting the clubs aloft.

Two weeks ago Leona Maguire was in a similar predicament when her clubs were lost on a journey from Dublin to Geneva.

Maguire was heading out for the Amundi Evian Championship but she could not locate her golf bag on arrival to Switzerland.

The Cavan golfer eventually did get her clubs back in time for practice. She finished in a tie for 65th on two-over-par, 19 shots behind the winner Brooke Henderson.
