A Georgian amateur golfer was able to live every weekend hackers dream after a Masters invitation arrived in his mailbox.
The invitation was intended for PGA Tour professionals. Scott Stallings, who qualified for the season-ending Tour Championship in 2022 and made it to the Masters field.
Scott Stallings tweeted on Tuesday that he had been checking his mail five times per day for the invitation. However, it never arrived. After Augusta National Golf Club misdirected it to his condo, the man reached out to Stallings via Instagram.
The man wrote Hi Scott . Hi Scott, my name is Scott Stallings and Im from [Georgia]. My wifes name, Jennifer, is also! … Today, I received a FedEx from the Masters inviting to participate in the Masters Tournament, April 6-9 2023. Im [100%]This is not for me. I play, but wow! [Nowhere] near your level.

The man offered to forward Stallings the invitation.
The man wrote that it was a very nice package, complete with everything you need to attend. I think theres some confusion due to our names, the names of our wives and the geographical location.
Stallings (37) has won three times in the PGA Tour. The most recent was at the 2014 Farmers Insurance Open, Torrey Pines. Stallings was ranked 54th in the world. He last played in the Masters in 2014. He missed the cut. In 2012, his only appearance at the Augusta National, he tied for 27th.
