After waiting weeks for his invitation to this year’s Masters, PGA golfer Scott Stallings received a welcome message on Twitter this week from Scott Stallings.

Due to some understandable confusion, the professional golfer’s invitation was delivered to an amateur golfer with the same name.

‘Hi Scott,’ read a direct message sent to the PGA Tour member. ‘My name is also Scott Stallings and I’m from GA. My wife’s name is also Jennifer!!

‘I received a FedEx today from the Masters inviting me to play in the Master’s (sic) Tournament April 6-9, 2023. I [100 percent] it’s definitely NOT for me. I’m playing but wow! No where (sic) near your level.’

As it turns out, the Masters invitation was delivered to amateur Scott Stallings’ condominium, but he quickly learned it wasn’t for him.

‘I’m playing, but wow!’ read the direct message. ‘Nowhere near your level. Great package complete with everything needed to attend. I think we have some confusion because of our names, our husband’s names and geographical location. I can be reached at [redacted] and I am more than happy to send this package to you.’

The ‘other’ Scott Stallings ended his message with: ‘I’m not really joking, I promise.’

The story was confirmed by Stallings’ agent to GolfChannel.com, not to mention Stallings’ own Twitter account.

‘Literally checking mailbox five times a day and then I got this random DM yesterday,’ Stallings, the Tour pro, tweeted on Monday.

Stallings is a three-time winner on tour, finishing first at the Greenbrier Classic in 2011, the True South Classic in 2012, and the Farmers Insurance Open in 2014. He finished as high as 27th at Augusta National.

Like many pros, Stallings was accompanied by his family to Augusta’s Par 3 Tournament, which is a light event before the Masters. Stallings’ young children, Finn and Millie, were spotted out and about in 2014, much to the delight of adoring crowds.
