Defending Champ Crane Disqualified

US Bank Championship in MilwaukeeMILWAUKEE -- Defending champion Ben Crane was disqualified from the U.S. Bank Championship on Friday for signing an incorrect scorecard.
Crane signed for a 3 on the par-5 sixth hole when he made a 5 on the Brown Deer Park Golf Course.
Crane, who had to finish 36 holes on Friday after inclement weather forced him off the course the day before, had just shot a 2-over 72 to end his second round and was standing at 1 under for the tournament.
The second round will not be finished until Saturday, but the current projected cut line is 2 under, meaning Crane would not have made it into the third round if his scorecard had been accurate.
Crane became only the second ever wire-to-wire winner in Milwaukee last year after winning by four strokes and posting a 20-under 260, tying the best 72-hole score in the tournament's history.
