(AP) Charles Howell III has been disqualified from the Wyndham Championship because the weight port cover on his driver came off before his second round.


The disqualification for using a non-conforming driver was announced Saturday before the start of Howell's third round.


Howell shot a 68 on Friday to move to 6 under, five strokes behind leader Patrick Reed.


PGA Tour rules official Tony Wallin says another official told him about Howell's driver early Saturday morning.


He says the weight port cover came off Howell's TaylorMade driver while he was on the driving range before his second round.


Had the cover come off during the round, Wallin says Howell would have been OK to play with it as long as he fixed it before his next round.
