Derek Ernst doesn't fault people for not knowing who he was before he won the Wells Fargo Championship on Sunday. After all, the PGA Tour rookie was ranked No. 1,207 in the world.

He's a lot more famous in the world of golf now. But as he found out on Tuesday, not everyone knows who he is just yet – including the person who made up the locker assignment sheet at The Players Championship.

After arriving at TPC Sawgrass and seeing that ''David'' Ernst had been assigned a locker, he tweeted: ''I guess I have to win another for people to know my name. Haha.''

Oh well, Derek. At least they got your name right on the winner's check in Charlotte.
