Pro’s strong start at Korn Ferry Tour Q-School erased after devastating disqualification
Luis Gagne committed one of golf’s ultimate sins, and doing so cost him dearly.
Gagne opened the second stage of Korn Ferry Tour Q-School with a one-under 70 and would have been in a tie for 41st with three rounds to play at the Plantation Preserve in Plantation, Fla., but we’ll never get to see how those rounds would have played out. Gagne was disqualified for forgetting to sign his scorecard before leaving the scoring area, and that results in a, yep, you guessed it — disqualification. Monday Q Info first reported the news.
The rules of golf can be harsh at times…Luis Gagne who is at 2nd in Plantation forgot to sign his scorecard before leaving the scoring area, the penalty for doing so…Disqualification. He had shot a -1 70 before being DQ'd. Gagne was ranked 24th in WAGR before turning pro

It was a tough break for Gagne, an LSU product. There are five second-stage sites for Korn Ferry Q-School, and the top 20 from each advance to the Korn Ferry Tour Q-School Final Stage, which will be held Dec. 12-15 at Orange County National in Winter Garden, Fla. (the top 40 plus ties there get Korn Ferry status next season).
