Thanks everyone! And sorry for the confusion fourputt, the second situation is stroke play, not match play. If it was match play I wouldn't have asked the question.
Then in stroke play the player is disqualified for returning an incorrect hole score. Read Rule 6-6. The player is responsible for the score for each hole. If he returns a card with any hole score lower than what he actually took for that hole, he has returned an incorrect score and is subject to disqualification. If he returns a card with a hole score higher than what he actually received, the score stands. The committee is responsible for adding the scores, but the player has to attest to the right scores for each hole.
