Brooks Koepka to play left-handed vs. Barstool Sports' Dave Portnoy in charity match for $250,000

0

What started with a little trash talk on Twitter has turned into a $250,000 charity golf match.

Four-time major champion Brooks Koepka will tee it up against Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy after the two traded some friendly banter back and forth on Thursday evening. Koepka, who will play left-handed, is playing for his charity foundation, while Portnoy will play for the Barstool Fund.

The time and date are to be determined, but we do know that Koepka will have Pardon My Take hosts Big Cat and PFT Commenter on the bag, while Portnoy will have Frankie Borelli, a member of the Fore Play podcast, as his caddie.

While you might think advantage El Pres, you might want to think again. Koepka has some serious game from the other side of the ball.

Koepka missed the cut earlier this month at the Masters, his first start after six weeks off due to neck and knee injuries. The eight-time PGA Tour winner had surgery March 16 that reattached a ligament and cleaned up damage caused by a dislocated kneecap in his right knee.
