Thorbjorn Olesen has been reunited with his missing clubs in time to try to boost his chances of a Ryder Cup debut in the Nordea Masters.

Olesen revealed on social media that five suitcases and two sets of clubs had been lost in transit in the space of 10 days as he travelled to the US PGA Championshipand then this week’s event in Sweden.

Thankfully for the in-form Dane, one of the sets has now been delivered to him in Gothenburg, where a second victory of the season would propel him into the automatic qualifying places for September’s Ryder Cup, with just two events remaining.
