(AP) Simon Dyson has been disqualified from the BMW Masters for a rules violation that was discovered Saturday morning. Dyson was in a tie for second, four shots behind Luke Guthrie.


In the second round Friday, he marked his ball just beyond the cup on No. 8. As he marked it, Dyson made a quick move to tamp down a spot on the green directly in his line. That violates Rule 16-1a.


The infraction was pointed out to European Tour rules officials, who spoke to Dyson. Because he did not add the two-shot penalty, he was disqualified for signing an incorrect scorecard.


The disqualification was a big blow to the Englishman. He was No. 66 on the money list. Only the top 60 are eligible for the final event in Dubai.
