Matthew Wolff was officially disqualified from the 2021 Masters after signing an incorrect scorecard, the tournament announced Friday:

The Masters @TheMasters

Statement from Tournament Headquarters: <br>Following his second round, Matthew Wolff returned a scorecard with a hole score lower than he actually made on hole 17. He was subsequently disqualified under Rule 3.3b(3).

Wolff was already set to miss the cut after sitting 11 strokes over par through the first two rounds.

The 21-year-old shot 76 in Round 1 and followed it up with a brutal 79 in Round 2, starting with an eight on the first hole.

While a snowman on the scorecard at a major is embarrassing enough, things got even worse for Wolff after a disputed 17th hole. He posted a bogey on the par-four hole but allegedly put a lower number on his card.

Wolff's statistics from the first two rounds are now stricken from the record, a disappointing result after missing the cut in his first appearance last year.
