European Tour pays wrong Tommy Fleetwod £120,000 Open winnings

Tommy Fleetwood tied for 12th at the Open Championship

Having grown up sharing a name with my dad, I can confirm that; I once dropped off a hardware store check at the bank only to realize that rather than depositing it into my checking account, the kindly old teller had instead somehow re-opened a years-old child's account in my brother's name that had my dad's name on it as a signatory.

Tommy Fleetwood of Bowling Green, Florida, unrelated to the professional golfer of the same name, mistakenly received US$154,480.

A surprised Tommy Fleetwood saw the amusing side after finding out his Open Championship prize money was mistakenly paid into the bank account of someone who shares the same name.

The blunder was noticed when a friend of the American Fleetwood - a Florida teaching pro in his 50s - revealed the windfall on Twitter.

Open Tommy Fleetwood, meanwhile, wasn't sweating the mistake.

"It was only for $14 or something but he called it up and looked at his statement, and that's when he shouted 'Holy smoke, I've just had £154,000 paid into my account!'"

It is believed the European Tour, who along with the PGA Tour are in charge of sending out prize money to the players, already had the former pro's bank account details because he had competed in Challenger Events in Europe decades ago.

"At least, he can always say he won $150,000 at the Open".

Fleetwood, who is also a caddie, told Reuters he had been trying to get in touch with the 27-year-old Englishman.

Hs is now preparing to play at this week's USPGA Championship at Bellerive in Missouri.

"I honestly didn't know anything about it", he told The Guardian.

The tour have apologised to both Fleetwoods, while the better known one's wife and manager Clare was off to check their bank account. I wouldn't even know if I'd been paid or not because I don't really look. And the latter Fleetwood's account is apparently where the former Fleetwood's British Open winnings were deposited.
