The European Tour has assessed an 18-month probation to Simon Dyson as punishment for his infraction at the BMW Masters on Oct. 25.
After marking his ball on the eighth hole of the second round, Dyson infamously used the ball to tap down a spike mark on the line between his mark and the hole. He didn't assess what should have been a two-stroke penalty and ultimately signed for an incorrect scorecard leading to a disqualification. Today, his home circuit announced that Dyson was "involved a momentary aberration on his part, not a premeditated act of cheating." This allows him to continue to play under probation, but he owes £37,500 in fines and fees. And if he's cited for another breach of the Rules of Golf, he will be subject to a two-month suspension.

Simon Dyson was disqualified from the BMW Masters before the third round due to signing an incorrect scorecard following his second round.

Dyson failed to assess himself a penalty on the par-4 eighth hole. In a statement, European Tour Chief Referee John Paramor said: "Simon Dyson has been disqualified ... under the rules of golf (6-6d), which states that a player must not touch his line of putt. Simon was found to have breached rule 16-1a, which states that a player must not touch his line of putt. Television viewers alerted the European Tour to the incident, ... and when the footage was reviewed Simon was seen to touch the line of his second putt after marking and lifting his ball on the green. He subsequently failed to add a two-shot penalty to his score when signing his card, and as a result has now been disqualified." It's a crushing decision given that the Brit sat 4-under 140 at the midpoint, good for a share of second place four strokes off the pace of leader Luke Guthrie. Dyson entered the week ranked 66th in the Race to Dubai. Only the top 60 qualify for the DP World Tour Championship.

Simon Dyson carded a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

The Brit landed only 11 greens in regulation at Firestone Country Club today, but he limited the damage to two bogeys and still converted six birdies. Three of them disappeared from beyond 10 feet, including respective rolls from 19'8" and 39'1" at the 12th and fourth holes.

Simon Dyson posted a respectable 1-over-par 71 in the final round of the U.S. Open to finish the week at 13-over 293.

After a rocky start, Dyson circled birdies on three of his last seven holes to post his best round at Olympic Club. For the week his ball-striking was lacking, finding less than half of his fairways and greens in regulation. He will not compete in the Travelers Championship.

Simon Dyson signed for a 4-over-par 74 following his opening round of the U.S. Open.

Out with a strained pelvis since withdrawing from THE PLAYERS, the Englishman hit eight greens at Olympic Club today and helped offset seven bogeys with three birdies. At the time he signed his card, he was just inside the top 60 on the leaderboard.

Simon Dyson updated his Twitter followers on the weekend that he's ready to return to competition at this week's U.S. Open.

The Brit wrote: "Really excited to be getting ready for the US Open..pelvis has healed great..just want to start playing again now..san fran here i come!!" Gamers must still reserve an ounce of caution if considering Dyson as an investment this week. He hasn't competed since a month ago today when he withdrew from THE PLAYERS after one round.

Simon Dyson is grouped with Charlie Wi and Nicolas Colsaerts at next week's U.S. Open.

The trio is scheduled to go off the first tee on Thursday at 1:07 p.m. PT. Their second-round tee time places them on the ninth hole at 7:22 a.m. on Friday. Dyson has been sidelined with a stressed pelvis since withdrawing after one round of THE PLAYERS. It also prevented him from competing in the BMW PGA Championship. Consider him on the short list of potential withdrawals for the second major of the year.

Simon Dyson alerted his followers on Twitter today that he will be sidelined for a while with a stressed pelvis.

Dyson wrote: "Really (gutted) to find out i [sic] have a stressed pelvis..close to fracturing.. a few weeks off for me now..this season just wont [sic] get going..:(" Two weeks ago, he withdrew after 18 holes at TPC Sawgrass due to a back injury. The revelation of this latest, perhaps related, malady forced him to withdrew from this week's BMW PGA Championship. He's eligible for both the U.S. and British Opens, as well as the WGC-Bridgestone, and he'll have no problem qualifying for the PGA Championship, but tread cautiously if you're looking to snipe the Brit.

Simon Dyson withdrew following his opening round of THE PLAYERS due to a back injury.

Simon Dyson's trips to the United States are rare, but he's in the field at THE PLAYERS on the strength of his world ranking.

Possibly explaining why he sticks mainly to Europe, the 38th ranked player in the world missed the cut at the Masters, failed to make it out of the first round of the WGC-Accenture Match Play and finished 72nd at the WGC-Cadillac Championship which did not have a cut. He does not have a competitive round at TPC Sawgrass under his belt.

Simon Dyson takes a streak of seven consecutive cuts made into this weeks World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

In those seven starts, Dyson has one top five and two more top 10s. Dyson made a big jump in the world rankings in 2011 after winning the Irish Open in July and the KLM Open in September.

Simon Dyson eked out a one-stroke victory at the KLM Open at 12-under-par 65-66-71-66=268.

This is old hat for the Englishman, who won this event in 2006 and 2009, both times in playoffs. "It's something special, a dream come true really," Dyson said afterwards. "To win any title once is tough, but to win it three times is a fantastic feeling. I started a bit shakily - my timing was just a little bit off -- but after my bogey on 11, I played pretty flawless golf." Indeed. He played his last seven holes at Hilversumsche Golf Club in the Netherlands today in bogey-free 4-under, including a birdie-4 at the last. Fellow countryman, David Lynn, posted a Sunday 68 to finish one stroke back. Rory McIlroy placed alone in third place at 10-under 270. This is Dyson's second victory on the European Tour this season (Irish Open) and sixth of his career. He's triumphed twice in 2006, 2009 and 2011.

Simon Dyson carded a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in his final round of the Irish Open at Killarney Golf & Fishing Club, defeating Richard Green by one stroke.

Dyson, Green and David Howell shared the 54-hole lead, but Dyson played in the penultimate pairing. He birdied the 16th and 17th holes to post 15-under 269. With Howell already faded (to an eventual closing 73), Green three-putted from a considerable distance from the hole at the par-4 18th. His first putt blew past the hole to about 10 feet. He missed the comebacker on the left side; it never had a chance. This is Dyson's fifth career victory on the European Tour. It also exempts him into this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Simon Dyson carded a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the British Open, finishing three strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead.

The 33-year-old Brit isn't a stranger to this event as this is his eighth start, but he didn't crack the field until a week ago and did so as an alternate when David Toms withdrew. Dyson hit 12 greens and took 27 putts. He was bogey-free 3-under until penciling in a 5 at the par-4 18th hole.

On Thursday morning, Simon Dyson was added to the field of The British Open.

Dyson gained entry into the field after David Toms withdrew from the John Deere Classic and The British Open due to a hip injury. The first alternate is now Thomas Bjorn.
