With no competitive golf to talk about, more and more videos have been circulating showing what some of the best goflers in the world have been getting up to during their forced time off.

Before golf courses recently announced they were closing in order to follow the governments latest rules in the battle against the coronavirus, we saw Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas go head-to-head in a left-handed match, followed by Brooks Koepka showing off his lefty power, but now Dustin Johnson has stepped up to the plate...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Sensing a trend, so we’re sending our best lefty to the plate.

It's quite possibly an old video given the current health crisis, as it would be surprising to see DJ and his other TaylorMade colleagues socialising, but it still makes Johnson the king of the lefty competition (no Phil, you're not allowed to take part in this).

Koepka's drive of 293 yards with his weaker hand was the benchmark and an impressive one at that, but DJ managed to crush his left-handed drive a total of 311 yards.

In the PGA Tour driving distance stats, Johnson is currently T28 after playing 16 events and averaging 308 yards, three yards shorter than what he pulled off with his 'weaker' hand.

Who will be next to take on the challenge? It might be a while before we see another given the circumstances, but is there anyone out there who can beat DJ's drive?
