That would explain why the accounts department had his bank account information.

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

By the sound of it, the non-Open Tommy Fleetwood is actually a pro golfer in Florida, according to The Guardian.

Tommy Fleetwood's British Open prize money of $154,480 was paid into the bank account of an American PGA professional with the same name.

U.S. player Tommy Fleetwood, born in 1959, discovered the unexpected windfall on Wednesday while with his friend Greg Thorner, who tweeted the bank statement showing the six-figure deposit between a $14.37 Walmart supermarket bill and a $16 wire transfer fee.

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 tees off up in Thursday's first round of the USPGA Championship, finished in a tie for 12 at Carnoustie and collected $154,480.

The Florida pro told USA Today he played one European Tour event in 1989 but the mix-up was likely cause he recently applied for a European senior event. "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", Thorner, a golf coach, added.

Fleetwood, who is also a caddie, told Reuters he had been trying to get in touch with the 27-year-old Englishman. "At least, he can always say he won $150,000 at the Open", Thorner joked.

'It's a amusing story.

"It was an honest mistake", Fleetwood said, sounding dumbfounded that he had suddenly become a focus of media attention.

It took me about an hour to get that sorted out, and I have plenty more stories like that.
