The Scott Stallings Masters ticket mix-up just got the perfect ending

Published

on

You may not see them both on the leaderboard, but at this year’s Masters, there will be two Scott Stallings.

On Monday, Golf WRX reported on a bizarre incident that resulted in 60-year-old real estate agent, Scott Stallings, receiving the Augusta invite meant for 37-year-old world number 54, Scott Stallings!

Even if both have wives named Jennifer, and all live in Georgia, the elder man cannot have failed to be surprised when Jenny (yes, that one) let her husband know of the mail delivered by UPS.

According to The New York Times:

“You just got invited to the Masters,” Jenny Stallings told her husband as he unpacked the car. Both are “very casual golfers,” they said; they enjoy a round or two but are not quite up to the level needed to compete alongside the likes of Rory McIlroy and Scottie Scheffler.

Still, Stallings snr. (for identifying purposes only) had a moment thinking his dream had come true.

“I was like ‘OK, well, I have this invitation,'” Mr. Stallings, 60, said. “It had my name on it. What are the chances?”

It would have taken some sort of deception to let this enthusiastic amateur tee it up come April, but all’s well that ends well, and the professional player has invited his hero along to a practice round at Augusta.

Journalist Dan Rapaport tweeted on Tuesday that confusion had apparently caused the error, with a mix-up over management companies to blame.

The New York Times continued the story of the handover:

On Monday, the two Scott Stallings’ and their wives spoke on the phone and made arrangements to get the invitation to the right Scott Stallings.

The golfer said in an interview on Tuesday that he had invited Mr. Stallings, the real estate agent, to dinner and a practice round at the Masters to thank him for agreeing to send the invitation.

2It was just nice to see someone doing the right thing,” the golfer said, adding: “I was just relieved that it physically existed.”

Don’t believe it? Well, here’s a video that the Stallings’ took outside the UPS store, just before they handed the invitation to the rightful owner.

“I promised you I wasn’t kidding! Package mailed. My wife made me do it! You’re Welcome!” says Scott, addressing the three-time PGA Tour winner, just about ready to tee it up as one of 39 select invites at the Sentry Tournament of Champions.

At least that invite made it to the right place

LIV Golf pros post funny video poking fun at airline after clubs debacle

Published

on

Yesterday, LIV golfer Ian Poulter shared on his Instagram story that his clubs were not shipped to LIV Houston event.

Today, Poulter shared that fellow Englishman, Tyrrell Hatton, as well as Lee Westwood and Henrik Stenson are being faced with the same issue as they prepare to tee it up at the Golf Club of Houston.

It seems as if the airlines have gotten especially bad with shipping golf clubs lately, as Adam Hadwin was faced with a similar situation at last week’s RBC Canadian Open on the PGA Tour.

Hopefully the clubs come in soon for the trio of Englishmen and the Swede. On Friday, Poulter, Westwood and Stenson will tee it up for the Majesticks while Hatton will represent Legion XIII at LIV Houston.

Another week, another professional golfer having issues with an airline.

After last week’s Adam Hadwin debacle, it was LIV Golf’s Ian Poulter this week.

The Englishman took to his Instagram account to share that British Airways failed to send his clubs to Houston as Poulter prepares for the LIV Event at the Golf Club of Houston.

Poulter then commented on the NUCLR GOLF post from his X account.

“It’s big news though.. hahahaha it’s like ordering a Steak and getting a lettuce leaf. Looks like most of the folks on here would just eat the lettuce and say thank you and give them a Tip.”

LIV Houston will kick off on Friday.
