British Open Sends Winnings To Wrong Tommy Fleetwood

Tommy Fleetwood’s strong British Open winnings had an unexpected beneficiary. More

Tommy Fleetwood didn't finish first in this year's British Open but it still should have been a good payday finishing at No. 12.

A Twitter user sent a screenshot of his friend's mobile bank statement Wednesday that showed a $154,480 deposit from the European Tour into his friend, Florida resident Tommy Fleetwood's account.

Tommy Fleetwood tied for 12th at the Open Championship.

After receiving a message from Greg Thorner, a golf instructor in New England, it appears that Thorner's friend - another golfer that's named Tommy Fleetwood - had actually received the 29-year-old Englishman's payout from his excellent performance at Carnoustie.

The REAL Tommy Fleetwood, who missed out on his payday.

It's golfers who get the last laugh though, or at least the professional ones, as they try to play less golf and get paid a hell of a lot of money for doing it.

Upon discovering the temporary windfall, the current caddy called his bank the query the transaction. He's in his fifties now but played some Challenge Tour events on the European Tour back in the day, and they must still have his details on file.

Hs is now preparing to play at this week's USPGA Championship at Bellerive in Missouri. He was not positive it was the same amount that Tommy won at the Open but we checked and it was.

His wife and manager, Clare Fleetwood, has received an apology from the European Tour and is trying to establish if the funds have been transfered to the proper account.

"I honestly didn't know anything about it", Fleetwood said.
