Spend any amount of time on social media and you usually won’t go more than a day seeing a professional golfer that does something that makes us mere mortals say “wow”. Most of the time it’s staged trick shots, but from time to time we get something that happens in a tournament that blows our mind.
This week’s video that made us go “wow” comes from Nelly Korda. While it technically didn’t happen during a tournament round, it did happen during a tournament.
During Wednesday’s practice round at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, Nelly found her ball near a water hazard. Unable to set up for her regular right-handed shot, Nelly flipped over the club and hit the ball lefty.

I’m just going to go ahead and say it, Nelly Korda could probably beat your average weekend golfer playing as a lefty.
