You have got to be kidding me! I am 26 and have never made this mistake in my entire golfing existence. I understand people add up their scores incorrectly from time to time, or they are frustrated they played poorly, so they leave in a hurry, but this is the friggin PGA Championship Sergio. Whether you shot 9 over, 8 over, or 100 over…make sure all your shots are counted. This isn’t just a mistake on his part, but his playing partners. But it is also a mistake that will hit him in the checkbook, which honestly probably won’t even make a dent, but it will in World Rankings and maybe in the Fed Ex Cup points.
