This is ridiculous. I get that golf is a game where honesty and sportsmanship are valued, certainly more than our other major sports where cheating is ok as long as you don't get caught. But this scorecard thing isn't about honesty, it's just red tape. Clearly, the PGA is big enough that they can have someone else keep score. Obviously, they have someone else check the scorecard. They could just correct these mistakes and notify the player. Intent and circmstances should count for more than crossing some imaginary "scoring area perimeter".
