Mics Caught Zach Johnson Cursing at Masters Patrons After Triple-Bogey

The 2007 Masters champion also tossed his ball into the water.

Zach Johnson was right on the 2024 Masters Tournament cutline as he stepped onto the tee box at the 12th hole during his second round Friday.

The par-3 hole, as it has to so many players before, proved to be a nightmare as the 2007 Masters champion sailed his tee shot into the woods. His third attempt flew wide right and his pitch back to the green rolled out well past the flag. Johnson could not stop the bleeding by sinking his double-bogey put and had to tap in for a triple-bogey 6.

The patrons seated some 175 yards away politely clapped for him finally finding the hole, but Johnson didn't much care for that. He told them to, well, quiet down with the help of some profanity.

His ball didn't fare much better as it was quickly flung aside into Rae's Creek.

Johnson bogeyed the 13th hole as well and likely won't be playing the weekend barring some miraculous run over the final stretch of holes. That might be good news for fans who simply want to come out to the most iconic course in golf, eat reasonably priced sandwiches and not be berated by controversial Ryder Cup captains.
