PGA Tour pro Scott Stallings has invited his namesake to the 2023 Masters now the hilarious case of mistaken identity has been resolved.
In case the news passed you by, three-time winner Stallings, 37, was left perplexed after he didn't receive his invite to the 87th Masters in April.
As many as 16 LIV Golf players received their invite so what, exactly, was the deal?
In a bizarre and hilarious coincidence it turned out that a realtor by the same name had received the invitation.
To make matters even more humorous, the wrong Scott lived in the same state and both men's wives share the same first name of Jennifer.
Wrote the realtor to the golfer:
I promise you I wasn’t kidding! @TheMasters Invitation mailed to you. My wife made me do it! You’re Welcome @stallingsgolf pic.twitter.com/x0hTdPyXBS— TheStallingsTeam (@stallingsteam) January 2, 2023
Video surfaced yesterday of the man looking forlorn as he posted the invitation to the tradition like no other to the professional golfer.
Now it has been confirmed by Dan Rapaport of Barstool Sports that Stallings has invited his namesake to Augusta National.
They'll be playing a practise round together, apparently.
Just caught up with Scott Stallings. He’ll be hosting the Other Scott Stalling at a Masters practice round in April!!!— Dan Rapaport (@Daniel_Rapaport) January 3, 2023
Turns out the invitation was sent to a now-defunct management company, and the Other Scott Stallings owns a condo adjacent to the building. Wild coincidence. https://t.co/2JyadS3p0v
The 87th Masters takes place over April 6-9.
Jon Rahm has already predicted there might be a bit of tension at the past champions' dinner.
In other Masters news, the iconic par-5 13th hole has been extended.
Golf fans reacted to that news by predicting Jordan Spieth would be the first player to come unstuck.
