Three-time champion Tim Fisher has been disqualified from this year's West Virginia Amateur.
West Virginia Golf Association Executive Director Ken Tackett said Fisher played the wrong ball on the 12th hole of the Old White TPC Course in Monday's first round.
Fisher hit his tee shot toward some trees and finished the hole using a provisional ball, even though the first one was eventually found. Tackett said Fisher was disqualified because the error wasn't corrected before he teed off on the next hole.
Fisher was coming off a three-year suspension in WVGA events. He was suspended one year for failing to give proper notification when he pulled out of a 2010 tournament in North Carolina. He got a two-year suspension in 2011 for an undisclosed code of conduct violation.
