Tommy Fleetwood must have some deep pockets because the English golfer has laughed off the fact that $150,000 was mistakenly deposited into the bank account of another man that's named Tommy Fleetwood.

Fleetwood returned the money and it went to the British Open finisher.

On Wednesday, a screenshot of the American Fleetwood's bank account was posted to Twitter by a friend, the prize money sitting there just above a purchase at Walmart. That's when I realized that it must be for the other Tommy Fleetwood and I quickly worked out that it was his Open winnings.

Ben Schwartz is the new voice of Sonic The Hedgehog
The film is being labeled a live-action family film, but CGI elements will most likely be used to create Sonic and his friends. Sonic the Hedgehog is in production, and will also star James Marsden and Tika Sumpter .

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

The European Tour has apologised after a "clerical error" led to a 58-year-old golf professional in Florida called Thomas Fleetwood receiving the payment into his bank account, instead of the Southport-born world number 11.

"My friend Tommy is a good guy and would always pay it back". 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.

Manchester United vs Leicester
Chelsea FC have turned to former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri to replace his compatriot at the Stamford Bridge outfit. The Sky Sports Predictor is based on a system called ELO, which was originally set up to rate chess players.

It took me about an hour to get that sorted out, and I have plenty more stories like that. "The money's been repaid now - but at least he can say he won $154,480 at The Open".

Meanwhile, there are two Zach Johnsons playing at the 100th USPGA.

"I honestly didn't know anything about it", the Fleetwood who had actually competed at The Open told The Guardian.

The Oscars Adds a Brand New Category for "Popular Films"
Which is a huge bummer for those of us who used to tune in exclusively to see who'd win the award for Best Costume Design. I hope that they will also think about what a big deal a new category is for the Academy and to that I say BRAVO to them.

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!'"
