supposedly there was a smudge on the fax that was sent to the scorers and they thought a 5 was a 3.
but that raises 2 questions, first, why the heck is the masters faxing scorecards?? IBM is a title sponsor for crying out loud. they can't scan to email? or walk the card to where it needs to be? augusta national isn't that big.
second, this sounds fishy to me. it's probably on the level, but it sounds fishy that everything is pointing to a DQ and then all of a sudden it's a fax error. just a little odd.
