    I think that's a pretty rediculous rule. In most sports, once the next play starts, whatever happened in the previous is no longer questionable (imagine if referees reviewed and overturned a touchdown from the first half of a football game after watching the replay over halftime!). In golf, you sign your scorecard after every round, but rulings can be reviewed all the way up until the end of the tournament. So the scorecard was correct when she signed it, but the rules infraction was added the next day, making the card incorrect, and causing the automatic disqualificaiton for signing an incorrect scorecard.
