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

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

Zach Johnson of the United States plays his shot from the eighth tee during the second round of the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club on April 12, 2019 in Augusta, Georgia.

The extraordinary incident became even more weird once the ball had richocheted off the tee marker and come to rest only a couple of metres away, still on the teeing ground. Under USGA rules, Johnson was allowed to re-tee without penalty because it was not intentional. On one of his practice swings Friday, he accidentally knocked his ball off the tee.

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. "That's a first. I thought I'd done it all, but now I know I've done it all".

"There's a first for everything boys", Johnson added.

And that's why you don't stand too close to a golf course.

Johnson carded a two-over, 74, putting him in serious danger of missing the cut.

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

Johnson was able to put the drama behind him, making birdie at the hole, although bogeys at the 17 and 18 hole left him at +1 for the day and +3 for the tournament.

The 43-year old was not assessed a penalty and the shot did not count as a stroke as Johnson had no intention to hit the ball.
