PGA Tour pro disqualified for signing incorrect card at Genesis Invitational

PGA Tour pro Wyndham Clark was sent packing from Tiger Woods' Genesis Invitational at Riviera on Thursday after signing for an incorrect scorecard after his first round. 

Clark, who is winless so far on the PGA Tour, shot a 6-over 77 but was then disqualified after it emerged his scorecard had not been filled in correctly. 

The 28-year-old American started the year brightly with a solo 13th at The American Express last month but he has since finished tied 56th, tied 65th and missed the last two cuts on the PGA Tour. 

PGA Tour Communications Twitter confirmed the DQ after the round:

 

 

 

 

Clark had his best finish of his PGA Tour career at the Honda Classic in March 2019, where he went into the final round with the lead before falling back to seventh place.

Joaquin Niemann tied the record for the lowest opening round in event history with an 8-under 63 on Thursday to take the lead as the Chilean goes in search of his second career title on the PGA Tour. 

Niemann will need to remain on his game though with the likes of Scottie Scheffler, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa and Cameron Smith all hot on his heels after 18 holes.
