We have all forgotten things before leaving for the golf course, whether it is your golf glove or your golf shoes. Even PGA Tour players forget basic things.

But there's basic, and then there's very basic. Adam Schenk fell into the very basic category when he left his house earlier this week and forgot to pack his golf clubs. Yes, he forgot to pack his golf clubs.

"I packed them up and put them in the Club Glove in the garage. Went inside to say bye to my dog, Bunker, and we just walked right past them and hopped in the car and went to Indianapolis and forgot them," Schenk said.

"We immediately shut the trunk, like that's an easy decision, we have to drive back. So we were just looking for flights on the way back and had to fly to Boston on Monday night, stay overnight and then Jet Blue here direct on Monday.

"For a little bit I didn't think I was going to be able to get here until maybe Wednesday afternoon, which would have been fine, but I wouldn't have been able to prepare like I needed to. I don't think I would have shot this well in the first round if I would have gotten here on Wednesday afternoon."

The American shouldn't feel too embarrassed. It is yet another travel chaos story on the Tour which seems to happen regularly, such as when Aaron Cockerill's wife took an hour-and-a-half flight to pick up his lost clubs while playing on the DP World Tour last week.

However, he put this significant distraction aside to shoot a superb 63 on Thursday at Port Royal. He made eight birdies and kept bogeys away from the scorecard.

It's a good job the 30-year-old went so low as 8-under was only good enough for tied third place after 18 holes. Austin Smotherman and Harrison Endycott led the way on 9-under.

Schenk has made a solid start to the 2023 season with back-to-back top-20 finishes in his last two starts. He reached the first event of the FedEx Cup Playoffs last season to keep his card for this year.
