One of the Florida pro's friends posted a picture of Fleetwood's account to Twitter on Wednesday.

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

Upon discovering the temporary windfall, the current caddy called his bank the query the transaction. And the latter Fleetwood's account is apparently where the former Fleetwood's British Open winnings were deposited.

Caddie Fleetwood told Reuters he was trying to get in touch with English world No.11 to put the player's mind at ease that the money would be refunded.

"The money's been repaid now - but at least he can say he won $154,480 at The Open".

However, Fleetwood didn't immediately receive that money because, well, another man named Thomas Fleetwood did.

Hs is now preparing to play at this week's USPGA Championship at Bellerive in Missouri. "It was only for $14 or something but he called it up and looked at his statement, and that's when he shouted 'Holy smoke, I've just had £154,000 paid into my account!'"

The tour have apologised to both Fleetwoods, while the better known one's wife and manager Clare was off to check their bank account.
