Jhonattan Vegas had to scramble to find new clubs on Day One at The Open, proceeds to shoot a 5 over par-76

Jhonattan Vegas had to deal with every golfer’s worst nightmare on Day One of The Open: playing with a random set of clubs. Vegas arrived late to the third major of the season after dealing with an expired visa. After grinding through UPS customer service, Vegas finally received his new visa Wednesday morning. He arrived to Carnoustie Golf Links after hitching a helicopter ride from Glasgow, Scotland. However, he didn’t have his clubs because of all the connecting flights. His caddie, Ruben Yorio, managed to put a mixed set of clubs together for Vegas. On Thursday, with a tee time on the horizon, Vegas hit 20 balls on the range and then stepped on the first tee box. With an unfamiliar set of clubs, Vegas struggled and shot a 5 over par – 76. Vegas told The Open he was excited to play but it was a rough adventure.

“It was fun,” he told The Open, “even though the journey was frustrating.”
