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

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

Johnson took a few practice swings, but accidentally knocked the ball off of the tee.

After 13 holes of play, Johnson now sits at one-under for the day and one-over for the tournament. Under USGA rules, Johnson was allowed to re-tee without penalty because it was not intentional.

The 43-year old was not assessed a penalty and the shot did not count as a stroke as Johnson had no intention to hit the ball. I thought I had done it all but now I know I've done it all.

Zach Johnson accidentally hit his ball at the 13th tee at the Masters on Friday in a hilarious scene.

Johnson was able to put the drama behind him, making birdie at the hole, although bogeys at the 17 and 18 hole left him at +1 for the day and +3 for the tournament.

The 13th tee is the quietest corner of Augusta National's course with no spectator close enough to see Johnson's mishap but it didn't go unnoticed by his playing partners Matt Kuchar and Ian Poulter and millions of fans watching at home.

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". "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. His jaw dropped and we had a good chuckle knowing that wasn't a penalty, but a not-so-top-10 moment".

"Only if I've been drinking", Kisner said.
