The 2 golfers flew Aer Lingus to Scotland for the Solheim Cup, simplest to have their golfing golf equipment move lacking. Yin additionally had a bag of garments that was once misplaced.
On Tuesday afternoon, Shadoff’s bag was once returned, and that evening Yin had her golf equipment, too, however nonetheless was once with out her garments—and one different key merchandise (we’ll give an explanation for later).
All the state of affairs developing an enchanting begin to Yin’s moment Solheim Cup look. Staff contributors are given their uniforms after they arrive on-site, so Yin has had golfing garments to put on. However the 20-year-old has been borrowing different pieces from teammates and Staff USA workforce contributors. Such things as socks, for instance, have grow to be a sizzling commodity for Yin.
As for her preparation at Gleneagles, Yin attempted to achieve as a lot path wisdom as imaginable with out her sticks.
“I haven’t been training, however I’ve been strolling the path, making my arrangements so when I am getting my golf equipment I’m going to be able to head out and play a tradition spherical, apply and do the entirety that I wish to do to arrange for Friday, Saturday and Sunday,” Yin stated on Tuesday.
She additionally set to work with a brand new set, constructed for her via Ping, some of the match’s sponsors. Yin, the No. 31-ranked participant on this planet, isn’t subsidized via Ping, or any membership producer, for that topic. Her set make-up options a lot of membership firms, however the set from Ping was once the most suitable choice in case her golf equipment by no means arrived.
Fortunately, even though, they did. Yin’s teammate and fellow pod-member Morgan Pressel took a video of the wonderful reunion.
The only snag, alternatively, is that Yin’s driving force head stays lacking. When Yin was once packing, she got rid of it from the shaft and put it in her clothes bag, which has but to be delivered. A lacking driving force is a large deal to the second-longest hitter on excursion. She averages 282 yards off the tee, and with Gleneagles enjoying rainy and lengthy, period is particularly vital this week.
The ultimate Yin heard, Aer Lingus had positioned it in London—which is attention-grabbing, as a result of Yin by no means stopped in London (she flew from Orlando to Dublin, then Dublin to Edinburgh). With play beginning on Friday morning, let’s hope her driving force head—and the remainder of her clothes—gained’t be staying there lengthy.
