By law, golf scribes are required to evoke the name "Roberto De Vicenzo" anytime something like this transpires, so let's get that out of the way. And, going on a limb here, the stakes weren't quite as high during the second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson as they were during the final hours of the 1968 Masters. Still, what happened at Trinity Forest on Friday is a rarity on the PGA Tour.
"What happened" being a disqualification for signing an incorrect scorecard, the guilty party being Ricky Barnes. The 37-year-old put his John Hancock on a card that had Barnes making birdie on the par-4 sixth hole. Problematic, as Barnes made a four.
An issue Barnes, who shot a one-over 73, didn't realize until after he left the course.
"I just heard about this," Barnes said on Twitter. "I signed my card when I was done playing. I guess my hole by hole was not correct."
On the bright side—if such a thing can be said on this issue—it didn't matter. At one over for the week, Barnes is well outside the projected cut line, which sits at three under.
