US golfer Scott Stallings received a surprise when he discovered that his Masters invitation had been sent by another person with the same name.
The 37 year-old sent a tweet saying that he was “checking the mailbox five days a week” for his invitation and then received a message from Scott Stallings.
Three-time PGA Tour winner, he posted the message from his nameake: “I’m 100% certain this is not for me. I play, but wow! I’m not even close to your level. ”
The message started with “Hi Scott. Scott Stallings is also my name and I am from Georgia (Georgia). Jennifer is my wife! !
“I got a FedEx today by the Masters inviting me into the Master’s Tournament, April 6-9 2023.
It’s a nice package that includes everything you need to attend. We are confused because of our names, the names of our wives and our geographical locations. ”
The invitation was then attached by him, with the following words: “I promise I’m not lying. ”
Stallings’ Twitter post was viewed over 10 million times. Many of the replies asked the golfer to invite his nameake to the Masters.
Others encouraged Scott Stallings, the “other” Scott Stallings, to be a caddie at the traditional Par-3 contest on Wednesday prior to each Masters.
Stallings currently ranks 54th in the world. His last PGA tour win was in 2014 at Farmers Insurance Open.
Augusta National hosts the 87th Masters Tournament from April 6-9.
