Former champion Zach Johnson's lackluster Masters campaign got downright embarrassing at the 13th hole on Friday, where the American knocked his ball off the tee with a practice swing.

The FCC is taking very bold action, bolder than theyve ever taken before, to make wireless spectrum available. Pai said consideration is "ongoing" without offering a deadline for a decision.


As Johnson steps forward to take his practice swing, he accidentally connects with the ball, sending it straight into the adjacent tee marker.

He was then informed that because the contact he made was unintentional, it did not count as a penalty stroke.

"That's a first. I thought I had done it all but now I know I've done it all", Johnson said after his round. "I mean, y'all can laugh". Because Johnson didn't have the intention of hitting the ball, he was allowed to re-tee and hit again.

When he took the tee box on No. 13, Johnson sat two shots above the cut line.

Johnson, who need to make up some ground if he wants to keep pace with the rest of the field, can't keep sending wild shots into the stands and accidentally hitting the ball ten feet if he wants to stay in the hunt.

Further, if anyone doubted the intent of his swing, his immediate exclamation of "Oh s--!" made it pretty clear that it was an accident.
