Brooks Koepka has asserted himself as one of the best golfers on the planet over the past few years thanks to his success in major championships.
The four-time major champion is always near the top of the leaderboard in the biggest events. In the near future, though, he’s be taking on a new, unique challenge.
Earlier this summer, Koepka confirmed he’ll be playing a charity golfing match against Barstool Sports president Dave Portnoy on September 7. There’s one interesting caveat, though.
Koepka will be playing left handed. That’s right, the natural righty will be swinging from the other side of the ball when the charity tournament kicks off in just over a month.
In anticipation of the match, Koepka has been working on his lefty swing.

That’s a better left-handed swing than most natural lefties have in their bag. It seems like Dave Portnoy might be in a little bit of trouble if Koepka is swinging this freely already.
Of course, this isn’t the first time Koepka has highlighted his ability to strike the ball left handed. Just over a year ago, his swing coach Claude Harmon posted a video of Koepka hitting an 8-iron nearly 200 yards while swinging left handed.

Koepka was clearly born to swing a golf club.
