Mini-tour golfer Wesley Hunter took to Twitter this week to share his disdain for United Airlines' handling of his clubs after participating in the Colorado Open.

The Spring Hill product said the airlines "ruined" his clubs to a point he "didn't think was possible." He posted pictures of his golf bag, which was ripped up, and his clubs, which showed his driver head had been snapped off and his wedge had been chipped.

"Ridiculous [United Airlines]," Hunter wrote, "my bag and clubs ruined to a point I didn't think was possible."

He added in a follow-up tweet, "Out of town at the Alabama open, submitted a claim, have to go back to the airport Thursday for them to [assess] how much damage has been done. Will update on what they say!"

Hunter has been on the mini-tour scene since going pro in 2018. He fell an eight-foot putt short of qualifying for the U.S. Open at Los Angeles Country Club in June.

The golfer does not currently have a club contract, so he has to replace his equipment himself. A gofundme has been started to help Hunter raise the funds to purchase new clubs.

The gofundme states, "Wesley Hunter has had a tough year as a young tour pro. He missed the Huntsville, Al. Korn Ferry Monday Qualifier in a playoff. He missed the US Open Qualifier by one shot. Unfortunately, after finishing 15th in the Colorado Open, United Airlines destroyed his clubs on the flight home. He does not have a club contract so he has to replace his equipment on his tab. This not only is a financial burden but a mental hurdle that continues to hinder him from reaching his dreams. How many gut punches can a guy take?"

"Join me and other golfers as we show Hunter golf is about overcoming adversity. Sometimes you can't do it alone. Sometimes you need help. Let's help Wesley get past this hurdle and empower him to move on to the next one!" it concludes.
