Zach Johnson appears to tell Masters patrons to ‘f— off;’ Paige Spiranac calls him ‘softer than baby poop’

After a rough hole, 2007 Masters winner Zach Johnson vented his frustration.

The Team USA Ryder Cup captain had a nightmare on the 12th hole at Augusta National Friday, making a triple bogey on the par-3 hole.

His tee shot went wide, and his third shot returned to the tee box, but he fell just short. He chipped on and then two putts for a triple.

After he finally holed out, sarcastic cheers could be heard from several spectators.

At that point, Johnson appeared to turn to them and yell, “Oh, no more!”

Asked about the incident afterwards, Mr Johnson said it was “absolutely laughable” that he had “sweared at patrons”.

“I can’t hear the patrons, I hit a triple bogey on the 1st, 2nd, and 12th holes, so I’m obviously going to miss the cut. At the time, I realized that this hole is quite sensitive. “I knew I needed to keep making pars,” Johnson said. That’s what he said after the second round. He missed the cut.

“If I said something, especially if it was in front of a camera, I’m not going to deny it, but number one, I apologize. Number two, because you can’t hear anything in the background. It was completely directed at myself. Is that true?” Makes sense? “

Paige Spiranac, one of golf’s most famous influencers, wasn’t happy.

“Augusta patrons are incredibly supportive and calm,” she says. X I wrote this on Friday night.. “There’s no more comfortable environment to play golf in. The fact that ZJ said this proves he’s softer than baby poop. That’s a really bad look.”

In fact, if he has interacted with a gallery, it is not the first time this year. At the Waste Management Open, he had to be stopped by security while he was talking to fans.

It is unclear what prompted Johnson to make the comment, but there were rumors that it was a negative comment made as Ryder Cup captain. Late last year, Team USA lost to Team Europe in Rome.

Johnson told some fans: “Stop it. Someone told me to stop. I’m tired of it.” “Shut up.”
