Swedish pro Peter Hanson was disqualified from the U.S. Open on Friday evening after signing an incorrect scorecard. 

The error occurred after he shot a 75 in the second round. On the 11th hole, Hanson made a 5 but signed for a 4. Hanson was at 12 over par for the tournament, so he would not have made the cut even without the disqualification.

This was Hanson’s eighth start at the U.S. Open, with his best finish coming in 2011 at Congressional where he finished T-7. He has played in 27 career majors with three top-10 finishes. Hanson earned a spot in the field after competing in a sectional qualifier in England.
