Signed his scorecard for the 17th hole at the 1968 Masters Tournament with a score of four, instead of his correct score of three (one under par). Rule 38-3 kicked in, which reads, "A score higher than actually played must stand as returned." Had this unfortunate error not occurred, De Vicenzo would have tied for first and entered a playoff with Bob Goalby to determine the victor.
