Shugo Imahira was disqualified from the WGC-HSBC Champions, but still took home a nice paycheck.

Imahira missed his 10:35 a.m. tee time for Saturday’s third round in Shanghai, China – mistaking his starting time – and was subsequently DQ’d.

Imahira opened in 72-79 at the no-cut event and collected $43,000 for last-place money.
