Zach Johnson Takes Biggest Mulligan Of All-Time At The Masters

Zach Johnson had a moment at the Masters on Friday that every casual golfer can relate to, but fortunately it did not cost him anything.

AUGUSTA, Ga. - It was a practice swing unlike any other.

As he was getting ready to hit his tee shot at the 13th, Johnson accidentally hit his ball while taking a practice swing.

Had Johnson already teed off and been hitting from the fairway, accidental contact with the ball would have counted as a stroke regardless of his intent, as the ball would have already been in play. His ball then ricocheted off the right tee marker and landed about 10 yards in front of Johnson, who casually walked up and grabbed his ball.

"Oh s--!" Johnson said immediately.

Pentagon says India debris expected to burn up in atmosphere
On Thursday, Bridenstine had reportedly promised to continue its cooperation with the Indian Space Research Organisation. Reddy said extensive simulations were conducted and there was no threat to the International Space Station (ISS).

Luckily, tournament officials did let him replay the shot without assessing him a one-stroke penalty, as the actions as deemed unintentional. "I don't think I could do it again if I tried".

And then there was a stand-up comedy routine - two, actually - after Kisner and Johnson completed their rounds, Kisner finishing off a 1-over-par 73 to sit at 2 under entering the weekend, and Johnson also shooting a 73 and sitting at 3 over after two rounds.

"That's a first. I thought I had done it all but now I know I've done it all", Johnson said after his round.

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

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