Matt Fitzpatrick remains positive about his chances of performing well at this week's Irish Open in County Londonderry, despite losing his clubs in transit over the weekend.
The world No 37 is having to tee-up at Portstewart, in Thursday's first round, with a new set of clubs but he was determined to look on the bright side.
His original bag of clubs failed to follow him home from Paris, where he missed the cut in the French Open on Friday of last week.
But speaking on Tuesday, the Ryder Cup golfer told Sky Sports News HQ: "I'm fine. The new irons are just a version of my old ones.
"The grooves on the old ones were going anyway. So it might not be a bad thing after all."
And when asked what his target is this week, on the Causeway Coast, the 22-year-old from Sheffield said: "To win of course."
