Currently, Brooks Koepka is preparing for the Northern Trust as the FedExCup playoffs begin. The PGA Tour season came to an end with the Wyndham Championship, the top 125 golfers ready for the playoffs. However, Koepka has another interesting event lined up – the Champ vs. Chump match between Koepka and Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy.

In his new video, we see Koepka blindfold himself and putt, tagging Portnoy in his tweet. Even his caption “One Putt Everyone Knows the Rules” refers to Portnoy, who he tagged soon after. The video has over 440 thousand views, fans sharing and liking the same. Koepka mentioned that he saw Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Tom Brady do this, and decided to up one up for him.

Naturally, people were impressed with Koepka’s shot, complimenting him on the same. Others called it clean, while many mentioned that Koepka was so used to his routine that he ended up looking at the hole before making it blindfolded. “Interesting how he looks down the line before pulling the trigger, even though he’s blindfolded!” one fan wrote.

The game is scheduled for September 7. As per pe the announcement, it will be worth $250,000. Details about how one can support the Foundation are apparently going to be shared later.
