It’s been an odd week for Danny King at the Gosling’s Invitational at Belmont Hills Golf Course in Bermuda.
King opened the tournament with a tournament and course record 58 on Monday, but put up an eight-over 78 in the second round that left him tied for second.
Then, King withdrew from the event after realizing he had signed an incorrect scorecard. Tournament officials say King brought the mistake to their attention.
“I had two rulings after the round that were very difficult to swallow,” wrote King in an e-mail.
“The first was my ball came to rest one inch out of bounds after rolling down a cart path. The second was my tee shot came to rest on an uprooted tree that wasn’t marked as ground under repair,” wrote King, who was unsure whether to play it as ground under repair, an unplayable or as it lies.
“After 15 minutes playing two balls I counted the wrong score of the original ball and performed an illegal drop. After the round, I was very flustered and upset, not focused, and made the call to the office that evening,” he added.
