A pro was disqualified after just one hole of DP World Tour Q-school – having travelled from America and paid €2,000 to compete.

Blake Abercrombie reportedly teed it up at Lynbygaard Golf in Denmark in pursuit of a card for next season.

However, his quest came to an end on the first hole after he used a rangefinder and was removed from the event.

Under Q-school rules, players are not permitted to use rangefinders during competitive rounds.

According to Monday Q Info, Abercrombie’s total bill for the week including travel and entry fees was $5,000, making it a very expensive mistake.

The 27-year-old has previously played on the PGA Tour Canada and PGA Tour Latinoamerica without much success.

Q-school returned to the DP World Tour schedule this year after a three-year absence due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
