    This is pretty big news -- deserves its own thread (and yes, I know there's a running thread; not everybody reads those):

    When's the last time a top player like this was disqualified after making the cut in a major?

    Wow. That sucks for him.

    Boo planned it all!

    I'm shocked he made a five with the club wrapped around his neck.

    Boo Weekley. It's not just a golfer's name. It's what fans should do to Garcia at every tournament.

    Of course, the guy who made the mistake on the scorecard doesn't get punished.

    Would it be so hard for the PGA to have official scorers with each group instead of counting on guys to keep track of each other's scores as well as their own?

    Mrs. Editude follows golf and didn't know competitors keep each others' scores. Let me know when Pudge calls out balls and strikes for A-Rod.

    In-freakin'-excusable. It takes 30 seconds to check your scores against what the player keeping your official score has. It takes another 30 seconds to check his scores against what you've kept.

    The caddie is also there to help double-check these kinds of things.

    Sounds like the heat fried both their brains.

    And those who blame Boo *** golf has only done it this way for, what, 70-leven billion years? Find me a golfer anywhere who can't recite his or her round. Check your score, which you should also be keeping along with your playing partner's score.

    Had he signed for a score that was higher instead of lower, would he still be disqualified or would he just be given that additional stroke?

    Take the stroke.
    Sign lower and you are T-O-A-S-T
