Luiten disqualified

DUBLIN, Ohio -- Joost Luiten, a 25-year-old golfer from The Netherlands, was disqualified Thursday for signing an incorrect scorecard.

In a post-round discussion with a PGA TOUR rules official, Luiten was found to be in violation of Rule 18-2b (ball at rest moves after address) on the 11th hole. The Dutchman was then assessed an additional penalty for violation of Rule 20-7b (playing from a wrong place).

His correct score should have been a 78 but Luiten, who ranks 85th on the European Tour money list, signed for a 76.

Luiten was unaware he had addressed the ball since he had not grounded his club. In a lateral water hazard, though, the player is considered to have addressed the ball after taking a stance.
