Speaking in St Louis, Missouri ahead of this week's PGA Championship, world No. 11 Fleetwood said he didn't mind the mistake and saw the amusing side of the mix-up. The curious situation was confirmed by Golf Digest, who reached out to the pro Fleetwood's wife and was told there had been a "huge clerical error by the European tour accounts department".

"I tried to get on their senior tour, so they have my (bank) information", he said.

'I wouldn't even know if I'd been paid or not because I don't really look.

The elder Fleetwood is now reportedly in the process of returning the money to the World No. 11 Fleetwood, but at least he can now probably say he's received more money as a pro than any of his colleagues.

Imagine waking up to $150,000 being deposited in your bank account and having no idea why you were suddenly a little heavier in the wallet.

'It's a amusing story.
