Tour pro Scott Stallings has invited his namesake for a practice round at Augusta National after their case of mistaken identity was cleared up.

In what is already a contender for one of the best golf stories of 2023, Stallings, a 37-year-old playing on the PGA Tour, was left confused after he didn’t receive his invite to the Masters despite checking his mail “five times a day”.

However, he then received a message from another Scott Stallings, who also lives in Georgia and has a wife named Jennifer, explaining he had received the cherished envelope by mistake.

Although he plays golf, the other Stallings works as a realtor and is a self-confessed “90s-shooter”.

He posted a picture on social media of himself posting the “very nice package” to his namesake – and now it appears the story has a happy ending for both Scott Stallings.
