Realtor Scott Stallings is an avid golfer, but he didn’t expect to find an invite to the Masters when he arrived at his condo in Saint Simons Island, GA, USA.
And while the invitation was addressed to him– it wasn’t meant for him.
It was intended for the world’s 54th-ranked golfer and PGA tour winner, Scott Stallings.
Real estate agent Scott Stallings, one half of The Stallings Team with Atlanta Fine Homes Sotheby’s, immediately recognized the mistake and took to social media to share the news.
He joked on Instagram that he intended to show up to the tournament in April with his clubs, but his wife persuaded Stallings to reach out to the golfer.
The pro-golfer got the message and shared the news on Twitter, saying he’d “been checking the mailbox five times a day and then I got this random DM…”
Interestingly enough, golfer Stalling’s wife is also named Jennifer.

Once the real estate agent convinced the golfer it was not a joke, he made sure the prestigious green envelope was sent to the right Scott Stallings.

The mixup has turned out to be good publicity for all parties involved, and both Stallings have been good sports about the case of mistaken identity.
And to cap off the fun– the realtor ended up getting an actual invite to attend the practice rounds at this year’s masters as well as an invite to dinner with the pro-golfer.
WE ARE GOING TO @TheMasters! @stallingsgolf invited us to meet him and his Jenny for dinner and to attend the practice rounds! This was on the bucket list. We are grateful to be able to fulfill this dream! Can’t wait to see Scott in the Green Jacket! Thanks for following the fun!
