that's barely noticeable. seems to me, someone was looking for something and cameras were rolling today just after she finished her 12th hole. >> from a wrong place. and two for an incorrect score on the 17th hole. >> is this a joke? >> no, it's not. it's not at all. >> all right. you can hear her ask is this a joke? in between tears, she goes out and makes a long birdie anyway on 13. her first hole after hearing the news. staying in the hunt. she still had a chance to win the championship with this eagle putt on 18. comes up a little short. you had to believe she was just out of her mind. settle for birdie in a play-off with so yeon ryu. right back to 18 for the first play-off hole. thompson with a birdie chance from the other side. also leaves it short. and then ryu had this birdie putt for the win.

it's inexcusable that the lpga didn't tell x than halfway through her round. >> it's unfortunate what happened. i did not mean that at all. i didn't realize i did that i learned a lot about myself and how much fight i do have in me. and i don't know. every day is a learning process. i wasn't expecting what happened today. but it is what it is. it happens. i'll learn from it and hopefully do better. >> golf is the only sport that allows tv viewers to become officials. the pga tour eliminated this for the 2017 season except in majors. you would never finish a game in any other sport if tv viewers were calling constantly. i understand the two-stroke penalty for ball placement. but you can't penalize her for signing incorrect scorecard when she didn't realize it until the next day. lexi handled it like the pro and
