After some trash talk on social media, it has been confirmed that Brooks Koepka will take on Dave Portnoy, the founder of Barstool Sports, in a charity golf match.

But there is a twist: the 4-time major champion will be playing left-handed in order to make the match a level playing field.

If Koepka wins the match, Portnoy will donate the huge sum of $250,000 to the Brooks Koepka Charity Foundation and the eight-time PGA Tour winner will donate the same figure to the Barstool Fund if he was to lose. 



Koepka may be at a further disadvantage as Barstool Sports personalities Big Cat and PFT, who co-host the "Pardon My Take" podcast, will caddie for him during the day.

Frankie Borelli, who is a member of the "Fore Play" podcast, will caddie for Portnoy in a match where the venue and date are yet to be confirmed. 

It has been fun to watch the banter that's gone back and forth between Koepka and Portnoy and it is great to see that such a large sum of money will be donated to charity.



Koepka has had an erratic season on the PGA Tour which has not been helped by injury. The 30-year-old had surgery on his right knee in March and faced a race against time to play at The Masters.

Koepka missed the cut at Augusta National which was a frustrating result considering the American worked so hard to make it to the event.

Although he has missed four cuts this season, Koepka showed his competitive mentality when he won the Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale in February.
