Zach Johnson accidentally hits ball during practice swingMore

Zach Johnson has been grinding through Round 2 at the 2019 Masters.

The key reason that Johnson's mishit didn't count as a stroke comes down to two things - the contact was unintentional, and the ball was not yet in play.

On Friday, Zach Johnson provided what may be the greatest "pros, they're just like us!" moment in recent memory, and it came at one of the sport's most recognizable stages: the 13th hole at Augusta National.

Ultimately, Johnson did not need to take a penalty stroke because he had not meant to hit the ball and it was not yet in play.

Fortunately for Johnson, who won the 2007 edition of the tournament, he did not incur a penalty as it was a clear accident.

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




Johnson clipped his ball on one of the swings.

Luckily, the 43-year-old emerged unscathed - pride not withstanding - as no penalty was applied and he went on to birdie the 13th hole.

And the odd incident didn't shake Johnson's concentration; he birdied the hole to move to 1 over for the tournament. "I don't think I could do it again if I tried".

"I can't think of a time I've done it - not on goal", Johnson said of hitting the ball during a practice swing.

Kevin Kisner, who was playing in the group in front of Johnson, said he'd never done it in a competitive round.
