European Tour Sends Wrong Tommy Fleetwood British Open Prize Money

Tommy Fleetwood of England plays his shot from the 14th tee during a practice round prior to the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club

For one weekend's work England's Tommy Fleetwood earned himself £120,000 for being tied 12th at the Open in Carnoustie last month.

Somehow, the transfer of just over $154,000 went into the account of a Tommy Fleetwood that did not participate in the PGA European Tour.

The European Tour have apologised after Tommy Fleetwood's Open winnings of nearly £120,000 were sent to the wrong Tommy Fleetwood.

Greg Thorner, who posted the screenshot of his friend Thomas's bank account, said: "He played a few European events so the European Tour obviously had some information on him and it must have got mixed up". That's when I realised it must be the other Tommy Fleetwood.

"He called it up (on his phone) and looked at his statement, and that's when he shouted 'Holy smoke, I've just had $154,000 paid into my account.'" Thorner told The Guardian.

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!

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

"My friend Tommy is a good guy and would always pay it back, even though he could do with the money as he broke his driver the other day and is struggling to buy a new one".

The elder Fleetwood is now reportedly in the process of returning the money to the World No. 11 Fleetwood, but at least he can now probably say he's received more money as a pro than any of his colleagues.

'I wouldn't even know if I'd been paid or not because I don't really look. I know the European Tour are looking into it and I'm sure they will feel pretty bad about it.

'It's a amusing story.

Hs is now preparing to play at this week's USPGA Championship at Bellerive in Missouri.
