A Clermont man says he mistakenly received a professional golfer's winnings in his bank account. 

Thomas Fleetwood says he got a bank notice last weekend showing a deposit in his account of nearly $155,000 from the PGA European Tour. 

The money was meant for golfer Tommy Fleetwood, who finished tied for 12th in the British Open. 

Thomas Fleetwood is a teaching golf pro. He says the PGA European Tour had his account information because he applied to play on the European tour's senior circuit. 

The PGA contacted the elder Fleetwood and told him about its mistake. He returned the money.
