The Masters: Zach Johnson's practice swing doesn't miss the ball

The Masters: Zach Johnson's practice swing doesn't miss the ball

AUGUSTA, Ga. - It was a practice swing unlike any other. On one of his practice swings Friday, he accidentally knocked his ball off the tee.

Johnson had fun with the incident, giving people on the tee box permission to laugh because, as he said, "That's embarrassing". It was so bad that it richocheted off the tee marker then popped in the air right in front of him.

"Shoot, they got that?"

After the initial shock the Englishman said Johnson saw the amusing side. "Yeah, that was a good one there".

Only his pride was hurt, since he was able to re-tee without a penalty because he did not intend to move the ball.

The 43-year old was not assessed a penalty and the shot did not count as a stroke as Johnson had no intention to hit the ball.

"Zach's eyes were as big as I've ever seen them".

Johnson made the most of his second chance, hitting a 285-yard drive onto the fairway and eventually netting a birdie on the hole.

Despite the mishap, Johnson is positive that it was one-off, adding: "I don't think I could do it again if I even tried".

His playing partners, Ian Poulter and Matt Kuchar, were also shocked, although the former admitted that he did not see what had happened as he was getting a drink out of his bag.
