Wrong Tommy Fleetwood gets paid British Open prize cash of €132k

Wrong Tommy Fleetwood gets paid British Open prize cash of €132k

Tommy Fleetwood was paid more than US$150,000 (RM611,000) in prize money from last month's Open Championship.

But there appears to have been a small mixup, as the EuroTour sent the money to the wrong Tommy Fleetwood. He even has the receipts.

The much older Fleetwood has also been a pro golfer - he's now attempting to get onto the senior tour.

Instead, it was deposited into the account of another Tommy Fleetwood, an American club pro. He was born in 1959, and reportedly has tried to qualify for senior events in Europe.

"My friend Tommy is club pro at the Streamsong Resort in Central Florida and I was with him there today when he received a notification on his cellphone", Thorner, a teaching pro from Tampa, said.

'He got on to his bank immediately and they didn't know what to say.

Fleetwood was tied for twelfth at The Open after he shot -3 for the tournament, Francesco Molinari was the overall victor on -8, and on the eve of the PGA Championship, it appears that Fleetwood has finally checked his bank account to see if his winnings from The Open were lodged.

"It's just something I don't really look at but I'll get on top of that". The European Tour had his bank details as he played some Challenger Tour events years back. At least he can always say he won $154,000 at the Open'.

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

'I wouldn't even know if I'd been paid or not because I don't really look.

"It looks pretty genuine and they (the European Tour) are looking into it and I'm sure they'll feel pretty bad about it".

In that case, he probably won't mind if non-Open Tommy Fleetwood just holds onto the cash.
