Tough way to go out

The Mid-Continent Conference held its golf tournament at StoneBridge on Monday and Tuesday and the Western Illinois Leathernecks won for the third time in four seasons.

Centenary finished last at the tournament, more than 125 shots off Western Illinois' pace. You couldn't help but offer some sympathy for the Gents, particularly after learning their best golfer was disqualified in his final collegiate round.

Senior David Viviano signed an incorrect scorecard and thereby was DQ'd. That's not the worse of it.

He aced No. 17.

So what happened then? Instead of penciling in Viviano's 5 on No. 6, his playing partner scribbled a 4. Vivano missed it and signed the card. So long, hole-in-one.

It's reminiscent of Roberto DeVincenzo's classic mistake which cost him the 1968 Masters. DeVincenzo signed an incorrect scorecard, and it cost him a green jacket.
