An accident involving manipulating the scorecard occurred. It is in PGA Tour Canada, which corresponds to the third part of the American Professional Golf (PGA) Tour.
On the 25th (local time), the American golf media Golf Channel said, “Justin Durden (USA), who participated in the Ottawa Open (total prize money of 200,000 dollars) held in Ottawa, Canada last week, falsified the score,” and “Durden admitted and withdrew. ” reported.
After the second round of this tournament, Durden wrote down a score that was two strokes less than the number of strokes actually hit. He double-bogeyed the final 18th hole, but wrote that he had par. When players who played with Durden raised objections, Durden replied to the match committee, “It is true that he played par,” and then withdrew. PGA Tour Canada entered disciplinary proceedings.
If Durden’s trick had worked, he would have missed the cut thanks to two fewer strokes, leaving 16 players unfairly ‘cut off’. Durden bowed his head on his social network service (SNS), saying, “I made the biggest mistake of my life.”
