Have you seen this golf bag?
RIO DE JANEIRO — Former Arizona State University golfer Anna Nordqvist just arrived in Brazil for the Olympics to compete for Team Sweden, but her golf clubs did not arrive with her.
Nordqvist tweeted shortly after arriving in Rio de Janeiro Friday morning that she was here, but her golf clubs were not.

Nordqvist is scheduled to play her first Olympic round Wednesday. This is the first time golf is being played in the Olympics since 1904.
The Swedish golfer attended Arizona State University for two and a half years between 2006 and 2008 before joining the LPGA.
Cronkite News has reached out to both United Airlines and Nordqvist for comment.
