AUGUSTA, Ga. – Matthew Wolff was disqualified from the Masters following the second round after it was discovered he signed for a score lower than what he actually made on No. 17.

Wolff opened with a 76 and continued those struggles on Friday. He made a quintuple-bogey 8 at the first hole and was 6 over for the day, and well outside the cut, when he made the turn. He finished with a second-round 79, officially making bogey on the 17th.
