Golfer asked to be disqualified from last week's PGA
LOUISVILLE, Ky (WKRC) -- Cameron Tringale has requested that he be disqualified from last week's 2014 PGA Championship.
A week after concluding his finest performance in a major tournament and finishing tied for 33rd place, Cameron fessed up to signing an incorrect scorecard.
On the 11th hole of Sunday's round, Tringale claims to have missed a stroke when attempting to tap in.
Reporting the error will cost Tringale $53,000.
Tringale himself claims he is unsure whether he actually addressed the ball, and it is unclear weather the PGA would have counted the stroke.
"Realizing that there could be the slightest doubt that the swing over the ball should have been recorded as a stroke, I spoke with the PGA of America and shared with them my conclusion that the stroke should have been recorded," Tringale said in a statement.
Tringale is ranked 107th in the world.
