Compton was disqualified from the John Deere Classic for missing the pro-am. However, Compton only became part of the pro-am field when two others had to drop-out, and when Compton was notified, he was hours from the course. Compton ended up losing his tour card, and may
quit professional golf. The PGA Tour has such rules to maintain the viability of the pro-am, and rightfully so. That shouldn't come at the expense of compassion and common sense.
