Golf professional Luis Gagne was incredibly disqualified from the second stage of Korn Ferry Tour Q-School for failing to sign his scorecard.
Gagne appeared in decent enough shape of earning one of 20 spots to the Q-School Final Stage next month following an opening round of 70, which saw him lie tied 41st with three more rounds remaining.
However, he never got the opportunity to fight for one of lucrative 20 positions as he left the course without signing his scorecard, and he was therefore disqualified from the tournament.
Check out the tweet posted by Ryan French, which revealed all...
The rules of golf can be harsh at times...Luis Gagne who is at 2nd in Plantation forgot to sign his scorecard before leaving the scoring area, the penalty for doing so...Disqualification. He had shot a -1 70 before being DQ'd. Gagne was ranked 24th in WAGR before turning pro— Monday Q Info (@acaseofthegolf1) November 5, 2019
There are five second-stage sites, each with 20 places up for grabs in the Q-School Final Stage from December 12 to 15.
The top 40 players and ties in the final stage will then receive at least some status on the Korn Ferry Tour in 2020.
Some of you may remember Gagne for sharing low-amateur honours with Matt Parziale at the 2018 US Open at Shinnecock Hills.
Gagne completed his eligibility at Louisiana State University, where he posted four top-10 finishes in 2018-19.
He was born in Costa Rica but attended high school in Orlando, and he was the runner-up to Alvaro Ortiz in the 2019 Latin America Amateur Championship in the Dominican Republic.
Gagne also qualified for a pair of US Junior Amateurs and reached the quarter finals of the 2016 US Amateur at Oakland Hills.
