WORLD Radio - Kicker: The wrong Stallings

The Masters sent an invitation to the wrong address

NICK EICHER, HOST: Scott Stallings is not a professional golfer. So imagine his surprise when he received an invitation to the most prestigious professional golf tournament.

Stallings told WXIA TV that his wife, Jennifer, received an exciting FedEx package:

SCOTT: She opens it up and yells down to me, Scott, we’re going to the Masters!
JENNIFER: Not we, YOU’RE going.
SCOTT: You’ve been invited to the Masters. And I thought, okay, maybe it’s some kind of random tickets. And it says, no you’re invited to PLAY at the Masters.

Tempting as the invitation was, Stallings said he knew the invitation wasn’t his.

There is a Scott Stallings who’s actually qualified—a real pro golfer—and clearly there was a mixup.

But the non-pro golfer Scott Stallings will have more than just a fun story to tell. His PGA namesake is giving him some practice-round tickets and plans to take the couple to dinner before the tournament.

It’s The World and Everything in It.
