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

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

The European Tour has apologized to United Kingdom golfer Tommy Fleetwood after committing something of a bogey by paying his $150,000 earnings from the British Open to a US PGA club professional of the same name.

But there's actually another golfer named Tommy Fleetwood, this one a caddy in Florida who once tried to make the Senior Tour.

Greg Thorner, one of Florida pro Tommy Fleetwood's friends, posted a picture of a Wells Fargo account summary to his Twitter account Wednesday.

Golf Digest have confirmed that this situation, is, in fact, true and to his huge credit, Fleetwood is laughing the whole thing off.

This being said, he might want to give the relevant PGA offices a ring to check if they've got his proper bank details ahead of the next tournament! "He got on to his bank immediately and that's when I realized it must be the other Tommy Fleetwood and worked out it was his Open winnings".

It was not paid, however, to the Tommy Fleetwood who played in the championship and tied for 12th at Carnoustie.

Pochettino said: 'I think it's so hard now because it's only a few hours until the end and I don't have news now. The circumstances are completely different from each other.

The much older Fleetwood has also been a pro golfer - he's now attempting to get onto the senior tour. "At least, he can always say he won $150,000 at the Open", Thorner joked.

"It was an honest mistake", Fleetwood said, sounding dumbfounded that he had suddenly become a focus of media attention. "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!'"

Fleetwood's wife and manager, Clare, admitted they did not know it had been paid into the wrong account until they were told about Thorner's tweet.

'It's a amusing story.

It's just something I don't really look at but I'll get on top of it'.

Meanwhile, there are two Zach Johnsons playing at the 100th USPGA. It would take me over five years to earn that, and that's if I was the best at my job, never mind joint 12th- rubbish Tommy.
