Johnson left red faced after practice swing gaffe

15 April 2019

Zach Johnson was taking practice swings on the 13th tee box Friday at the Masters when the unthinkable happened.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - It was a practice swing unlike any other. Under USGA rules, Johnson was allowed to re-tee without penalty because it was not intentional. "I actually hit a really good tee shot after that, so I think I recovered nicely".

However, he got far too close to the ball itself, and brushed it off the tee with his driver.

The 510 yard par 5, however, can offer players the ideal opportuinty for relief on the final hole of the famed Amen Corner, and so the 43-year-old would have been pretty confident of his chances of making up for his bogey at the par-3 12th.

Greg Craig Pleads Not Guilty to Lying About Foreign Lobbying
Craig worked in 2012 for Ukraine's Ministry of Justice while he was a partner at the prestigious law firm Skadden Arps. The document sought to legitimize the prosecution of former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko .

Johnson's actual drive went 285 yards down the middle of the fairway, and he knocked his approach shot on the green and two-putted for an easy birdie on the par-5.

Johnson reacted by looking in the direction of his group, comprised of Matt Kuchar and Ian Poulter, who appeared to confirm they were happy the shot was unintentional. "Maybe I've tried to do it, but I don't think I could do it again even if I 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".

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