Zach Johnson had the most embarrassing Masters moment

Zach Johnson hits ball on practice swing but it's not a penalty	
				Rob Schumacher  USA TODAY Network

Johnson teed up his ball, squared up his stance and took a practice swing.

But here's the thing: it was a practice swing, so the shot doesn't count.

"I was caught off guard", Johnson said.

Johnson had fun with the incident, giving people on the tee box permission to laugh because, as he said, "That's embarrassing". "Yeah, that was a good one there".

Luckily, tournament officials did let him replay the shot without assessing him a one-stroke penalty, as the actions as deemed unintentional. I thought I had done it all but now I know I've done it all. Because his ball was still not "in play" and on the teeing ground, he is allowed to simply replace it as long as he had no intent to hit the ball.

"Zach's eyes were as big as I've ever seen them".

3 killed, 4 injured in Nepal plane crash near Mount Everest
The airport, built in 1964, is rated as one of the most risky airports in the world due to strong tailwinds and a short runway. The dead included two security guards who were near the helicopter. "We are not sure about the cause of the accident".

The rule in question is Rule 6.2b 5.

Johnson's actual drive went 285 yards down the middle of the fairway, and he knocked his approach shot on the green and two-putted for an easy birdie on the par-5.

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 even tried", Johnson said. "I know there's supposedly footage of every shot hit here at Augusta this year, and I'm hoping to see that footage at some point".

Playing in consecutive groups during the second round Friday, Kisner and Johnson had some, let's just say, interesting moments.

"Only if I've been drinking", Kisner said.
