Sergio Garcia was disqualified from the 89th PGA Championship on Saturday when he signed an incorrect scorecard following his third round at Southern Hills Country Club. It was the first time Garcia had ever been DQ'd from a major championship.

TULSA, Okla. -- Sergio Garcia was disqualified Saturday at the 89th PGA Championship when he signed an incorrect scorecard after completing the third round.

Garcia, who had just three-putted the 18th hole, signed for a par 4 on No. 17 when he actually made a bogey and left the scoring area at Southern Hills Country Club. Garcia's score should have been 4-over-par 74, which would have left him at 9 over for the championship, but he instead turned in a 73.

Prior to Saturday, Garcia had never been disqualified in a major championship.

The blunder made for a disappointing end to the 2007 major season for the Spaniard. He missed the cut at both the Masters and U.S. Open before losing in a playoff at the Open Championship to Ireland's Padraig Harrington after taking a three-shot lead into the final round.
