Henrik Stenson announced as Dustin Johnson at Tour Championship [VIDEO]

No one is going to mistake Henrik Stenson for someone else -- at least for a while.

The 2013 FedEx Cup champion, however, was mistaken for another tall boomer on Sunday ahead of the final round of the Tour Championship.

Stenson was accidentally announced on the first tee at East Lake as his playing partner, Dustin Johnson.

The Swede took the slight in-stride, however, before going out and winning the Tour Championship, the FedEx Cup and $11.44 million for taking both first-place prizes on the line on Sunday.

Stenson moved up to fourth in the Official World Golf Ranking, as well, close to an all-time high ranking and furthering the comeback from a 2012 low of 230th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Dustin Johnson also should not be mistaken for anyone else. He's the happiest man in the world, engaged to Paulina Gretzky.
