Golfer agrees to send old his gear to Twitter 'chancer' namesake

Chris Wood

Sometimes it sucks to share the same name as a famous person.

Just ask Dr Donald Trump or Seattle-based photographer Taylor Swift.

Other times, though, it can pay off.

Chris Wood is the latest person to discover that. Going by the name @rawhideclyde1 on Twitter, he reached out to his namesake – three-time European Tour winner and 2016 Ryder Cup player Chris Wood – to cheekily ask him for some of his old gear.

• Sergio speaks out on Ryder Cup prospects

• PGA Tour plotting major FedEx Cup overhaul

• Three-way fight for final automatic Team Europe spot

Check out his tweet:

Seems he got former BMW PGA champion Chris on a good day.

How good is that?

Of course, the exchange prompted some more people to get their begging bowls out.

Fair play to Chris, it's a cool gesture. But if there's golfer you really want to have the same name as, it's surely Tommy Fleetwood.  This is why.
