Pro golfer DISQUALIFIED from DP World Tour Q-school on hole one!

American pro golfer Blake Abercrombie was disqualified from an event in the first stage of the DP World Tour Q-School on the first hole, having travelled from America to Denmark to compete.

According to Monday Q Info, Abercrombie paid a hefty entry fee of 2,000 Euros to play in the First Stage Section E at Lyngbygaard Golf in Braband, Denmark.

However, the 27-year-old used a rangefinder on the first hole in pursuit of qualification for the DP World Tour. Rangefinding devices aren't allowed in Q-School and he was disqualified.

He was one of three players to be taken from the tournament during or after the first round. Jose Gonzalez was disqualified after shooting an 86 in the first round in Denmark which included four 7s on his scorecard.

This was an incredibly brutal way to bow out of a Q-School competition. The DP World Tour Q-School returned in 2022 for the first time in three years and it was first established in 1976.

The first event of the first stage was held at The Players Club in Bristol at the start of September. The first stage will conclude in France at the start of October and the second stage will begin on November 3 in Alicante.

The final stage of Q-School will take place at Infinitum in Tarragona, Spain on November 11. At the sixth event of the first stage of qualifying at Bogogno Golf Resort in Italy last week, 22 players qualified for the next stage.

Abercrombie has previously plied his trade on the PGA Tour Canada and the PGA Tour Latinoamerica, but he is yet to make a top-10 on either circuit.
