American club professional golfer Tommy Fleetwood paid $154,000 prize money in error

Fleetwood won £120,000 for finishing joint 12th at The Open

"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.

The much older Fleetwood has also been a pro golfer - he's now attempting to get onto the senior tour.

The European Tour has apologized to United Kingdom golfer Tommy Fleetwood after committing something of a bogey by paying his $150,000 earnings from the British Open to a US PGA club professional of the same name.

A Twitter user sent a screenshot of his friend's mobile bank statement Wednesday that showed a $154,480 deposit from the European Tour into his friend, Florida resident Tommy Fleetwood's account. That Tommy Fleetwood is probably used to having large sums show up randomly in his bank account.

Instead of paying the world's No 11-ranked golfer for his 12th-equal finish at Carnoustie, US$154,480 (NZ$230,000) was direct-credited to American club pro Tommy Fleetwood, a past player on the European Tour, the Telegraph reported.

"It's just something I don't really look at but I'll get on top of that!"

"I honestly didn't know anything about it", the Fleetwood who had actually competed at The Open told The Guardian.

Here's how Thorner thinks the mistake took place: his friend Tommy Fleetwood played briefly on the European PGA Tour. "At least, he can always say he won $150,000 at the Open", Thorner joked.
