Danielle Kang will be a part of the 2023 US Solheim Cup, which will take place from September 22 to 24 in Casares in Andalusia, Spain. The American golfer travelled all the way to Malaga, a city in Spain for the biennial tournament. However, she left behind her golf bag in Amsterdam.
Danielle Kang recently asked for help from her fans and flight officials to keep her golf bag on the next flight from Amsterdam to Malaga.
The six-time LPGA Tour winner shared a post on her Twitter account, saying:
"I need everyone’s help again. My captain and the entire US Team has been on this but someone PLEASE put my GOLF bag on the next flight out of AMSTERDAM to MALAGA…it’s missed every flight it could’ve been on today..BAG TAG 0074676649 @transavia flight."
Fans jumped into the comments section to write:
"Can’t some company fly these ladies private to their biggest event? Come on it’s the Solheim Cup."
"Come on people! We need DK playing her own equipment this week!" wrote another user.
"You have the worst luck with your bags," another fan commented.
Kang also suffered from the same issue at the Amundi Evian Championship last month when she missed her bag at the airport.
The US Solheim Cup captain Stacy Lewis also asked the airline to help Kang with her luggage. She took to Twitter to write:
"@Delta @KLM would love some help locating a set of golf clubs… kind of a big tournament going on this week!!!@TheSolheimCup @SolheimCupUSA"
