Stewart Hagestad said he landed in Milwaukee on time. His golf bag did not on Friday.
The 20-year-old golfer from Newport Beach will need his clubs by Monday.
With his Titleist equipment or someone else's, Hagestad plans to compete in the 111th U.S. Amateur Championship at Erin Hills. The trip is Hagestad's third to a U.S. Amateur in the last four years.
Every year, something seems to go wrong with Hagestad's flight. Phoenix seems to be the problem.
"The bag was left in Phoenix this time," Hagestad said before calling it just another pre-U.S. Amateur hiccup.
The first year, he said, monsoons in Phoenix forced him to take a different route to reach one of the world's top courses, Pinehurst in North Carolina.
The change sacked Hagestad before play began.
"I got in at two in the morning," said Hagestad, who lasted just two days in the tournament.
The 6-foot-5 Hagestad expects to make it into match play for the first time. He flew in a couple of days before the tournament tees off, looking to settle in.
