The Masters 2019: Zach Johnson hilariously hits ball on a warm-up swing

Masters Zach Johnson accidentally smacks ball with practice swing... still birdies

-Accidentally strikes the ball when making a practice swing or while preparing to make a stroke.

Johnson, 42, won the green jacket in 2007, but it was a shade of red the USA golfer went when he mistakenly made contact with his ball on the 13th hole.

The ball appeared to ricochet off the tee marker on the right, before coming to rest a couple of metres away.

Only his pride was hurt, since he was able to re-tee without a penalty because he did not intend to move the ball. Under USGA rules, Johnson was allowed to re-tee without penalty because it was not intentional.

"That's something we're going to laugh about for a long time", said Matt Kuchar, who was playing with Johnson and Ian Poulter.

The Premier League trophy is at Anfield for Liverpool's game against Chelsea
The Basaksehir striker referred to the team that day as reserves adding, "I would say he put the reserve team out". I'm not a Man City supporter or happy that they won the league. "They have some of the best players in the world".

After teeing up his ball and preparing for his tee shot on Augusta National's famous dogleg-left par-five, Johnson accidentally struck his ball with his driver (see below).

Johnson finished with a one-over par 73 in the second round and is at 3-over for the tournament. "That's a first. I thought I'd done it all, but now I know I've done it all".

"Okay, there's a first for everything there boys", Johnson said, relieved.

"I don't think I could do it again if I even tried".

"He doesn't let me forget many things", Johnson said, "But, hey, you get what you deserve".
