Johnson left red faced after practice swing gaffe

Johnson left red faced after practice swing gaffe”

Kevin Kisner and Zach Johnson!

Former champion Zach Johnson has been involved in a weird incident during the second round of the Masters, accidentally hitting his ball while taking 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.

"Y'all can laugh", Johnson said as he prepared to hit again.

A frustrated Johnson, unsure of the rules, was told by fellow golfers Matt Kuchar and Ian Poulter the swing didn't count, as the shot wasn't intentional - the ball could be re-teed.

The biggest surprise is that the world No. 1 is not among them.

Johnson's actual drive went 285 yards down the middle of the fairway, and he knocked his approach shot on the green and two-putted for an easy birdie on the par-5.

Johnson ended his second round with a 73, a slight improvement over his day-one score of 74, as he aims for a repeat of his Masters-winning performance 12 years ago.

"Yeah, that was a good one there", Johnson said.

Playing in consecutive groups during the second round Friday, Kisner and Johnson had some, let's just say, interesting moments. "I know there's supposedly footage of every shot hit here at Augusta this year, and I'm hoping to see that footage at some point".
