HOUSTON – Now, this is something you definitely don’t see every day.
Mark Hubbard was disqualified after finishing his second round of the 2022 Cadence Bank Houston Open at Memorial Park Golf Course on Friday after violating Rule 4.1c.
What did Hubbard do, exactly?
“Hubbard knowingly added a 15th club at the turn and used the club several times without declaring it out of play,” per the PGA Tour.
The rules of golf state there can be only 14 clubs in a player’s bag during a round.
It is unclear what club Hubbard added to his bag. Hubbard, who shot 75-74 (9 over) in the first two rounds, was going to miss the cut, his third straight.
