Johnson left red faced after practice swing gaffe

Johnson was standing on the 13 tee at even par for the day after a bogey on 12, when he took a practice swing with his driver, and accidentally made contact with his ball that was on the tee.

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.

The 2007 Masters champion was in the middle of the pack as he wound his way through the back nine, after scoring a 74 in the opening round.

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", Johnson said. "I don't think I could do it again if I tried".

Tiger Woods Wins His Fifth Masters Title
Tennis giant Serena Williams led the tributes, saying she was "literally in tears" watching his comeback performance. Unsurprisingly, the triumph also renewed talks of Woods making a run at Jack Nicklaus's record of 18 majors.

"I thought I had done it all, but now I have done it all", he said after his round.

He was able to re-tee the ball and then striped his tee shot-his actual tee shot-right down the center.

The 510 yard par 5, however, can offer players the flawless opportuinty for relief on the final hole of the famed Amen Corner, and so the 43-year-old would have been pretty confident of his chances of making up for his bogey at the par-3 12th.

"I didn't see it, but I heard it. Zach's eyes were as big as I've ever seen them".

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