European Tour Sends Wrong Tommy Fleetwood British Open Prize Money

The real Tommy Fleetwood prepares for the PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club after his Open Championship

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.

Unveiled today in NY , the Galaxy Note 9 features a large battery, a Bluetooth-enabled S Pen , and lots of storage. At the other, it's also catering towards the need of business users by upgrading the phablet's S-Pen.

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.

Johnson is yet to issue a response. "It's not the job of the Prime Minister to tell backbenchers what to do. Armeena added, "If a woman wants to wear a short dress, it is her right and freedom to do so".

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.

Another Indonesian government agency has put the figure at 381, a significant increase from figure of 131 reported on Wednesday. Emergency workers are gradually starting to reach more remote areas of Lombok as they continue their rescue missions.

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!'"
