After finishing 12th at the Open Championship in July, Fleetwood was set to earn $154,000.
Instead, it was sent to a 58-year-old by the same name who caddies at the Streamsong Resort in Bowling Green, Florida.
"This was a clerical error which we are resolving and we apologize for the inconvenience caused to both parties", the European Tour said in a statement.
Golf Digest have confirmed that this situation, is, in fact, true and to his huge credit, Fleetwood is laughing the whole thing off. "I emailed them back and I said, 'Well, I plan on sending it back, but you've got to excuse me that I'm not going to send it to this thing you're sending me randomly in email".
"I think what happened was that he played some Challenge Tour events on the European Tour back in the day and they must still have his details on file".

The problem: The European Tour sent the money to the wrong Tommy Fleetwood.
"At least, he can always say he won $150,000 at the Open".
"I honestly didn't know anything about it", the Fleetwood who had actually competed at The Open told The Guardian.
The "other" Tommy Fleetwood, in St. Louis this week beginning the 100th PGA Championship, said he didn't hold any ill toward the European Tour and was able to smile about the story.
Open Tommy Fleetwood, meanwhile, wasn't sweating the mistake.
"I didn't know at first where the money came from because it just appeared as a wire transfer", the Orlando golfer told USA Today. It's a amusing story. "But I'll get on top of that".
