19th Hole

Zach Johnson hits ball on practice swing; Twitter has a field day

Published

on

Former Masters champion, Zach Johnson, suffered an embarrassing mishap during his second round of play on Friday while he was preparing to play his tee shot on the par-5 13th hole.

On the final hole of Amen corner, Johnson while taking a practice swing, accidentally hit his ball producing stunned reactions from both himself and his playing partners. Johnson let out an audible “oh sh_t” before adding “well, that’s embarrassing.”

Check out the incident below.

Thankfully for Johnson, he was allowed to re-tee his ball without suffering a penalty as there was no intent to play the shot.

As always, the bizarre moment provoked some witty comments from users on social media.

    I know He is a pro but that was a pretty hard practice swing. Case in point his practice wings after that we are much slower
