Graeme McDowell to be reunited with golf clubs at Ballyliffin

McDowell shot a 1-under 71 on Thursday at the Irish Open, and he'll have to finish in the top 10 and be one of the top three (plus ties) that have not already qualified for The Open. "If it wasn't for Twitter and the fact the story really gained a huge amount of momentum to where Air France's PR department had to call me and say, 'Listen, we have to sort this out for you, ' the clubs would still be in Paris somewhere".

Instead, however, he won't swing a golf club on Tuesday.

After losing his clubs en route to Ballyliffin, the former US Open champion will be hoping to put together a performance that could see him qualify for the Open at Carnoustie.

Flew into Manchester last night from CDG and my golf clubs are untraceable.

"I knew my clubs were in Charles de Gaulle, I just couldn't get a straight answer as to where they were and whether they could get them to me by this morning".

Sonos files for IPO
Sonos had raised $455 million from investors including KKR, Index Ventures and Redpoint Ventures. According to Sonos, customers listen to an average of 70 hours of audio content per month.

"Looking doubtful I will participate tomorrow at The Open qualifier".

"If that had been my last chance saloon today, if there weren't three spots available this weekend and three spots available next week in Scotland then of course I would have tried".

The withdrawal doesn't exactly disqualify McDowell, now 46th this season on the European Tour in terms of earnings, from a spot at The Open Championship July 19-22nd at Carnoustie Golf Links in Angus, Scotland.

However, with the Irish Open and the Scottish Open also carrying Open qualification spots, there is still time for McDowell to make it to Carnoustie. You keep chipping away, and I'm enjoying...
