US golfer Scott Stallings was handed a shock after discovering his Masters invitation had been sent to another person of the same name.
The 37-year-old tweeted he had been “checking the mailbox five times a day” for his invitation before receiving a direct message from another Scott Stallings.
The three-time PGA Tour winner posted the message from his namesake, which included: “I’m 100% sure this is NOT for me. I play but wow! Nowhere near your level.”
The message began: “Hi Scott. My name is Scott Stallings as well and I’m from GA (Georgia). My wife’s name is Jennifer too!!
“I received a FedEx today from the Masters inviting me to play in the Master’s Tournament April 6-9, 2023.
“It’s a very nice package complete with everything needed to attend. I think we have some confusion because of our names, our wife’s names and geographical location.”
He then attached a picture of the invitation adding: “I’m really not kidding I promise.”
