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.

Ian Poulter live streams Formula One during final round of RBC Heritage

Published

on

Ian Poulter isn’t afraid to do things his way on tour, and he exhibited that characteristic once again on Sunday at the RBC Heritage, as he live-streamed Formula One during his front nine.

We (or more accurately I) initially believed the Englishman was tuning in on the course to watch his beloved football side, Arsenal, who were in action at the same time, but on our Instagram, Poulter made it clear that it was, in fact, the F1.

Following his round, the 45-year-old described his front nine as “the most relaxed ever”, and the multi-tasking appeared to work nicely, with Poulter going bogey-free over his opening nine holes on the final day.

Later in the day, on his Instagram stories, Poulter addressed the odd critic of this Sunday juggling act, telling his followers: “I was just doing what every other normal person does while they’re at work – and that’s watch live sport on their phones. So, I joined you.”

By all accounts, the race was a thriller too.

Si-Woo Kim’s ‘birdie’ results in par and why he loses $100k if he breaks another club

Published

on

Saturday at the RBC Heritage threw up one of the most unusual moments you’re likely to see on the PGA Tour after a successful birdie putt for Si-Woo Kim resulted in a par.

On the second hole, Kim hit his birdie effort to within a breath of the cup. With the ball appearing to be still moving, the South Korean and playing partner, Matt Kuchar, watched intently for just under a minute before the ball finally dropped in the hole.

However, Kim’s joy was short-lived, as the wait exceeded the 10-second rule, meaning the ‘birdie’ resulted in a par.

Playing partner Matt Kuchar pleaded the case for Kim’s birdie effort to stand with a rules official, Stephen Cox, arguing that the ball was still moving.

In Cox’ response, he told Kuchar: “in this situation, the rules are modified because you could argue that there comes a point in time that we’ve got to play that golf ball. And that’s why you put that time limit on it.”

“Absolute BS,” wrote Emiliano Grillo on the PGA Tour’s Instagram feed and the tour pro wasn’t alone in venting his frustration, with many golf fans left feeling that Si-Woo had been hard done by.

On the GolfWRX Instagram account, a user @thefern16 jokingly posted that: “After the putt dropped on, @siwookim_official snapped his putter out of principal.” in reference to the South Korean breaking his flat-stick in frustration during the Masters.

In response, Si-Woo said, “@thefern16 no more snapped club. I’m retired that”.

Kim then let GolfWRX into a potentially expensive agreement he has with Pat Perez, posting that he has agreed to pay his friend $100k if he breaks another piece of equipment in anger on the course!
