Zach Johnson looks at the green on the seventh hole during a practice round for the Masters golf tournament

Zach Johnson of the U.S. hits from the rough on the 2nd hole during second round play of the 2019 Masters golf tournament at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, U.S., April 12, 2019.

Only Johnson's pride was hurt because he was allowed to re-tee the ball without penalty because he had not meant to move it.

Johnson was going through his practice routine on the par-5 13th on Saturday (NZ time) when the tip of his driver hit the golf ball. "Maybe I've tried to do it, but I don't think I could do it again even if I tried".

In these instances, infants who were not in restraints rolled over in the Rock 'n Play. The recall will impact about 4.7 million sleepers, the commission said.


Unfortunately for Johnson, his weekend prospects look slim after two consecutive bogeys on the final two holes of his round have left him looking very vulnerable at +3, with current leaders Francesco Molinari and Jason Day sharing the clubhouse lead at -7. Matt Kuchar, Ian Poulter and the caddies replied in unison that the shot wasn't intentional and there was no penalty.

"He backed off and said, "it's OK you can laugh". "But now I know I've done it all".

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.

"I was caught off guard", Johnson said.
