Golfer sees his winnings from The Open deposited into the wrong bank account
Christ, that's some amount of money to misplace.
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 named Tommy Fleetwood.
Fleetwood was tied for 12th at The Open after he shot -3 for the tournament - Francesco Molinari was the overall winner 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.
After receiving a message from Greg Thorner, a golf instructor in New England, it appears that Thorner's friend - another golfer named Tommy Fleetwood - had actually received the 29-year-old Englishman's payout from his excellent performance at Carnoustie.

Golf Digest have confirmed that this situation, is, in fact, true and to his immense credit, Fleetwood is laughing the whole thing off.
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!
