The 63-year-old from Florida, who won the 2004 title at Royal Portrush, was penalized for `undue delay’ when playing the 13th hole.
His wife became confused when a ball from a group on the 10th tee landed nearby.
European Tour Senior Referee Andy McFee said: He stood by the bunker where his ball had landed for two or three minutes, then there was a couple of minutes wandering up to the tee, then a couple of minutes for the rules official to go and get the caddie from the 10th and bring her back.”
