Just had a weird thing happen where I got an email from an organization called Tee Times-Info telling me I had a confirmed tee time tomorrow at Terranea. Only I hadn't booked it. I called Terranea and eventually was told the reservation was made by someone with my same last name but different first name, and because I'm in their system, it must've been some sort of mix up and was sent to the wrong person. (The guy I talked to said Tee Times-Info is an affiliate of GolfNow.)

Does that seem fishy/potentially dangerous to anyone else? If this reservation is linked to my account in their system, I suspect I would've been charged when I "no show"-ed for the time. Or just a harmless mix up?

I'd go with the fishy/black helicopter/Q explanation, Mark.

I'm not saying fishy in some conspiratorial sense. I mean it like shouldn't GolfNow have better safeguards in place that their system doesn't confuse two people with the same last name? I'm hoping that somehow human error was to blame, not a glitch in their system.

I used to get tee time confirmations from Stone Creek Golf Club in Oregon City for tee times I had not made. I too was concerned about a no show fee since I had previously used a credit card there.

In that case it turned out there was an employee who worked there that had the same first and last name who would book a tee time after work or on the weekends. I was occasionally sent the confirmation by mistake. I never had any issues with charges. Could have snagged a few prime Saturday morning tee times however.

The goal has always been long and straight! But since I can no longer hit them long, hopefully straighter could be achieved more than occasionally?

Haha, yeah I've been looking for somewhere to play tomorrow, too! Too bad it wasn't prepaid or else I might've showed up. ;-)

I get a couple of "thank you for playing" e-mails from Morongo each month. I haven't been there in 5 years probably, but somebody else got linked through my e-mail I guess.

I got an e mail like that a couple weeks ago from some Orange County course I have never played. Something about my payment had been made and time was that day at 10:30? No charges appeared so I let it go. Weird and of course concerning in these days of rampant ID theft.

4 or 5 years ago I went to Best Buy and bought a refrigerator. Best Buy had/has a rewards program like many retailers now days which I was not a part of. When I checked out, the guy apparently tried to link my order to my rewards account, since my name is fairly common he found "me". A few days later I took the day off when the fridge was scheduled to be delivered. The fridge never showed.

Apparently that morning they called the phone number on the rewards account they linked to the purchase, same name, living within 5 miles or so of me. They were telling him exactly when the fridge would be delivered and his response of course was "I didn't order a fridge" so the delivery was canceled.

So this happening on tee times, or something similar is not surprising at all.
