As happily predicted by Irish Golfer Magazine, Scott Stallings, the professional golfer, has reached out to his namesake, Scott Stallings, the Atlanta-based realtor, offering him player guest passes into this year’s Masters.
The two Scott Stallings have never met, nor the two wives who also share the same first name of Jennifer.
However, the current World No. 57 ranked Stallings has Stallings, also a part-time golfer, to thank after the second Stallings thought all his golfing dreams had come true in receiving an envelope postmarked ‘Augusta, GA’ but was wrongly sent to him.
However, the second Scott Stallings in this story won fans around the globe for his efforts in getting in contact with Scott Stallings the pro golfer to ensure the incorrectly delivered Masters formal invitation along with all the instructions he needed to know ahead of a third appearance in the Masters, though a first since 2014, made its way to the proper Masters invitee.
Stallings’ runner-up finish at the BMW Championship during the FedEx Cup playoffs qualified him for the Masters for just a third time by placing him in the top 30 for the Tour Championship.
Stallings stated Monday at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, “I honestly believed my wife had it and was planning something for Christmas. Then, however, nothing arrived, and we departed two days after Christmas. I did not even consider.”
But then a second Scott Stallings came forward via an Instagram post explaining what arrived into his post box and what happened next, well we now know and despite leaving the green jacket Augusta National members extremely red-faced.

And now as we also thought, the other Scott Stallings in this story can also arrange his own trip to Augusta National.
“We’re going to give him some practice-round tickets and take him to dinner on Monday night for doing the right thing,” Stallings added.
And knowing that it’s only a two-hour drive south-east on I-20, that will make for an easy drive to the famed Augusta National for the other Scott Stallings in this madcap story.
Anyway, well done to both Scott Stallings.
