Dumbest rule in sports

So Sergio Garcia got DQ'd from the PGA Championship because he signed an incorrect scorecard at the end of the third round of Saturday.

The rule about requiring pro golfers to keep their own score has got to be the dumbest rule in sports, bar none. What the hell is the point in making them keep their own score if you have official scorekeepers and TV cameras following the action?

I understand why small-time and recreational golfers keep score, but you wouldn't expect NBA players to keep their own score and call their own fouls just because that's what they do on the playground, right?
