On Saturday, Michael Barbosa nearly ended his 2011 U.S. Mid-Amateur experience before it started by showing up four minutes late to the first tee at The Houstonian Golf and Country Club. The St. Petersburg, Fla., resident was penalized two strokes for his tardiness and shot an 81.
Brian Corcoran of Dallas, Texas, was not so fortunate on Sunday. He showed up for round two at Shadow Hawk Golf Club eight minutes late and was disqualified from the competition under Rule 6-3. Corcoran had opened the championship with an 8-over 80 at The Houstonian.
