Zach Johnson had the most embarrassing Masters moment

Zach Johnson of the U.S. hits from the rough on the 2nd hole during second round play of the 2019 Masters golf tournament at Augusta Nationa

Zach Johnson hits on the 18th hole on Thursday during the first round for the Masters golf tournament in Augusta, Ga.

Former champion Zach Johnson's lackluster Masters campaign got downright embarrassing at the 13th hole on Friday, where the American knocked his ball off the tee with a practice swing.

Johnson, giving his club a forceful swing through the air, clunked the ball into the marker, proving that even major champions can make silly mistakes.

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

And that's why you don't stand too close to a golf course.


Because the PGA allows for intention to be factored in - and it's quite clear Johnson didn't mean to shank his drive 5 yards - he then teed up the ball and smoked his shot down the fairway.

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". "That's a first. I thought I'd done it all, but now I know I've done it all".

Johnson carded a two-over, 74, putting him in serious danger of missing the cut.

Johnson then awkwardly stepped up to pick up his ball, looked around at his playing partners to see their reaction, and then took another whack at it. The 2007 Masters champ bounced back in the early going on his second round, moving to one-over par on several occasions.
