SANTA CRUZ, Calif. — The Husky men's golf team thought it had shot a 1-over 351 in the final round of play to end up third at the 67th Annual Western Intercollegiate on Sunday.

But coach Matt Thurmond and golfer Chris Williams later discovered that Williams had signed his scorecard incorrectly. This led to a final round disqualification for Williams and a drop in the team standings from third to fourth.

Williams mistakenly signed for a par 4 instead of a bogey 5 on the 7th hole. The Huskies were forced to count Trevor Simsby's 77, which changed UW's third round score to 7-over 357.
