Zach Johnson knocks ball off tee with practice swing at the Masters

Zach Johnson knocks ball off tee with practice swing at the Masters

Here's Zach Johnson hitting a tee shot correctly.

Being a Masters champion is something most recreational golfers can't relate to, but 2007 champion Zach Johnson looked like a weekend hacker when he accidentally hit his ball during a practice swing on the 13th tee at Augusta National.

As Johnson's group informed him, there was no penalty for the freakish gaffe because it clearly happened while he was taking a practice swing. Johnson said after the round when told video of the swing existed.

"Zach's eyes were as big as I've ever seen them". He was able to re-tee the ball and then striped his tee shot-his actual tee shot-right down the center.

You guessed it, four shots and 510 yards later, Johnson sunk a birdie putt to take him to within one of level par.

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.

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

After the initial shock the Englishman said Johnson saw the amusing side.

"That's something we're going to laugh about for a long time", said Matt Kuchar, who was playing with Johnson and Ian Poulter. "His jaw dropped and we had a good chuckle knowing that wasn't a penalty, but a not-so-top-10 moment".
