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

Zach Johnson accidentally hits ball during practice swingMore

It was a lucky escape for the former Masters champion, as the rules take into account intention to make a legitimate 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.

Stars from the HBO fantasy epic congregated in Belfast on Friday, to fete the show's eighth series, which will air from April 14. What got the fan favourite killed was his inability and disinterest in playing the game of thrones in Kings Landing.


Zach Johnson, the 2007 Masters champion, stepped to the tee box on the 13th hole at the tail end of Amen Corner during Friday's second round.

The most impressive part of the sequence is that Johnson then stepped up and bombed a flawless drive down the middle of the fairway.

Soaking rains could snarl Monday morning's commute on the East Coast before the storm moves off to sea. The roof of a hotel in New Albany, Mississippi, was damaged, although the cause was unclear.


Despite his pride being hurt, Johnson did not incur a penalty and he ended up making a birdie. "I actually hit a really good tee shot after that, so I think I recovered nicely".

Johnson then awkwardly stepped up to pick up his ball, looked around at his playing partners to see their reaction, and then took another whack at it. However, because the rules state a ball is not in play until after the tee shot, Johnson was able to re-tee it and hit away. "I thought I'd done it all, but now I know I have", said the 43-year-old, who added Kuchar would not let him forget the gaffe.
