Can't thank everyone enough for the messages of congratulations. All your words are very humbling and they mean the world to me!

Big time oops.

He did the right, smart thing and immediately went to his bank. They had no idea what happened, so it took him a second to piece it together, according to his buddy, Greg Thorner.

“He got on to his bank immediately and they didn’t know what to say. 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… At least he can always say he won $150,000 at the Open,” Thorner told The Guardian.

Meanwhile, Tommy Fleewood, the pro golfer, told The Guardian he didn’t even notice the money wasn’t deposited.

“I honestly didn’t know anything about it… I wouldn’t even know if I’d been paid or not because I don’t really look. It looks pretty genuine and they are looking into it and I’m sure they’ll feel pretty bad about it. It’s a funny story.”

All fun and games until you need that $100k!
