2012 Masters: Luke Donald Has No Issue With Scorecard, Will Not Be Disqualified

It looks like there isn't much of a controversy in August yet after all. The competition committee at the Masters had been reviewing Luke Donald's scorecard following his first round, where he shot a +3 75.

SI's Damon Hack originally tweeted that Donald shot 73 in the first round, which would have put him at +1. Hack then quickly corrected himself, saying that Donald shot a 75, before breaking the news that the competition committee was reviewing Donald's scorecard.

It's all much ado about nothing, though. Golf Channel's Jason Sobel tweeted that it was merely a problem with the fax -- and not Donald's scorecard.

This is, of course, great news, as you never want to see a golfer disqualified -- especially for fudging a scorecard.
