PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. —

Cameron Tringale is out of the PGA Championship and out more than $50,000, all due to a mistake on his scorecard. 

The Associated Press reported he said he may have whiffed on a tap-in putt and signed for an incorrect score.

Tringale said, according to a Bleacher Report article, that he is not sure if he addressed the ball.  

Tringale spoke to PGA officials because he thought the stroke should have been recorded, and that he signed an inaccurate scorecard, so he should be disqualified.

The miss would have added one stroke to his round, tying him for 36th instead of 33rd place according to Bleacher Report.

Not only will he lose the $53,000 in prize money earned, The Associated Press reported that he will also lose 37 FedEx Cup points.

Many are citing his integrity on Twitter for reporting the error which could have given him his best year in his pro career.
