Scorecard mistake costs UW men's golf team in California
Star golfer Chris Williams signed his score card incorrectly, disqualifying his final round and costing the Huskies one spot in the final standings.
SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — The Husky men's golf team thought it had shot a 1-over 351 in the final round of play to end up third at the 67th Annual Western Intercollegiate on Sunday.
But coach Matt Thurmond and golfer Chris Williams later discovered that Williams had signed his scorecard incorrectly. This led to a final round disqualification for Williams and a drop in the team standings from third to fourth.
Williams mistakenly signed for a par 4 instead of a bogey 5 on the 7th hole. The Huskies were forced to count Trevor Simsby's 77, which changed UW's third round score to 7-over 357.
UW shot a 6-over 294 to finish tied for 11th at the PING/ASU Invitational in Tempe, Ariz. Washington had an 880 (+16) to finish tied with TCU in the 17-team field.
