The pros, they’re just like us!
The most beautiful part of this game is that just like Brooks Koepka, any hacker can pull off a towering iron shot into a green every once in a while. The humbling part of this game, however, is that Koepka can find the hosel of his 6-iron just as well as any 20 handicap. Case in point: his second shot into the 12th hole during the morning foursomes matches.

While seeing a shot like that may warm your cold, cold golfer’s heart, you typically get reminded pretty quickly why these guys are pros and you’re watching from your couch. Brandt Snedeker, Koepka’s partner, hit the pair’s next shot onto the green where Koepka holed the putt for par.
And that next shot after a shank? Koepka didn’t show any residual effects. 253 yards. 4-iron.
