The problem: The European Tour sent the money to the wrong Tommy Fleetwood.
You're the Tommy Fleetwood who attempted, unsuccessfully, to qualify for the European Seniors Tour and now, 58, caddies at the Streamsong Resort in Bowling Green, Florida. They [the European Tour] are looking into it and I'm sure they'll feel pretty bad about it. That said, should his winnings ever go missing again in the future, Fleetwood will know the first place to look. It's a amusing story. Fleetwood's wife said in an email, "apparently the payments were made manually, not on automated system and there are two TF's somehow?"
Luckily for the current PGA pro, Thomas stopped by his local bank this week and had the accounting error corrected, much to his chagrin.
According to the report, she described the direct deposit blunder as a "huge clerical error by the European Tour accounts department".
