Spieth DQ'd after signing an incorrect scorecard at the Genesis Invitational

Spieth DQ'd after signing an incorrect scorecard at the Genesis Invitational

PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. – Jordan Spieth was disqualified from the Genesis Invitational on Friday after signing an incorrect scorecard.

The mistake came on the par-3 fourth hole, where Spieth fell under par but actually made bogey. He missed the left of the green and went 4 feet but missed the putt.

After a first-round 66, Spieth was in the top 10 as he played his final hole Friday at Riviera. But he pushed his drive right on 18 and clipped a tree as he approached, recording double bogey to shoot 73. Then, he walked up the stairs to the clubhouse.

About an hour after the tour announced his disqualification, Spieth provided an explanation, saying that he had gone outside the scoring area before he was notified of the error. He played the first two rounds with tournament leaders Patrick Cantlay and Tom Kim.

With Spieth out for the weekend, the 51 players have reached the halfway mark. Cantlay leads by five at 13-under 129.
