Rickie Fowler Could Probably Beat You At Golf Left-Handed

Rickie Fowler is good at golf. He might be better than any of us even when he’s playing left-handed.

In a practice round at TPC Sawgrass on Tuesday before the Players Championship, Fowler’s ball landed near the water and he wasn’t able to take a right-handed swing. Luckily, he borrowed one of playing-partner Phil Mickelson’s left-handed irons and took a cut. Not bad!

About a year ago, Fowler played an entire round lefty and posted his swing and scorecard on Instagram. The swing wasn’t too great, but he finished with a round of 110. Not too shabby. 

So for all of those Tour pros who voted him the most overrated player on Tour (along with Ian Poulter): Take that!

But it’s not quite as good as hitting the island green at TPC Sawgrass left-handed like he did last year.
