Aug 5 (Reuters) – As a professional golfer, Jessica Korda is used to living out of a suitcase, but the American had to borrow clothes from her rivals at the Women’s British Open in Scotland this week after her luggage was not arrived from Zurich.

Korda, who shot a five-under par 66 first round for second place at Muirfield, said her suitcase carrying clothes, hats and hand warmers was stuck at Zurich airport.

“If anyone knows anyone at Zurich airport who would like to put my suitcase on the only daily flight they have to Edinburgh, I would deeply appreciate it,” Korda told reporters on Thursday.

Korda, who has six LPGA Tour wins, borrowed outfits from other players, including her sister and world number three Nelly Korda, for practice days, but was relieved to get a new set clothing from sponsor Footjoy before the first round.

“Monday I wore Megan Khang’s pants. Tuesday I wore my sister’s pants and Wednesday I wore Alison Lee’s pants. And today I’m wearing the FootJoy pants,” she said.

“I dropped out on Wednesday. If he comes here, great, but if not, that’s what it is.”
