You vs Koepka in a handicapped match

Recommended Posts

Not sure about clubs, but before we would tee off, I would say to the press "**Handicapped Matches** are the easiest to win, you figure

there are two in the field, and half of them won't kiss their girlfriend if they win, and you have one left, so I plan to kiss my wife. I'm not thinking about the next club. I'm just using lots of chapstick and eating plenty of tictacs from then and there. And I kind of dummy it down, and make it very simple, that's what helps me. "

Not sure what your handicap is, but I bet if you gave Brooks a 7 iron and told him to go play he could shoot around even par or better on a lot of courses.

My short game is horrid currently. But I'd happily play Koepka off the back tees with both of us using 9 iron through to putter. Think it would be very close as I hit it further than him and 9 through to putter are my best clubs. If I putted well I'd have a chance. If he had 7 iron through to putter he'd beat me every time probably assuming he would be hitting a 7 iron 200 on average off the tee cranking it right up? Guessing he would be scratch /close to scratch with just a 7 iron through to putter at most golf clubs. With a 9 iron through to putter I'm assuming around +15? This is just speculation and pure guess work.

I think even if I made Brooks pull his putter along with Driver, 3W, hybrid, 3, and 4 iron he'd still beat me.

To put it another way if Brooks could only use putter and 4 iron I think he would beat me.

My son and I watched Brooks Koepka hit balls on the range at the Deutsch Bank Tournament in 2013 or 2014. He was incredibly long and straight hitting driver off the range. It was an awesome show. My son asked me if I new who he was and although I had heard of him, I didn’t know much about him. His caddie overheard our conversation, walked over to us and said, “you’re looking at the next super star on The Tour”. That caddie was a prophet, no doubt. Back to your question, you’d have to start by taking his putter away, then all of his straight faced irons. Of course his woods would have to go. Let’s leave him with an 8-iron, 9-iron, and pitching wedge. I’m a 4-handicap and that might level the playing field. These guys are that good!

Well since I'm a 18 HC and it's a documented fact I wouldn't break 200!! I guess he could get around with just an 8 iron and beat me ?

if he played the blues, and I played the yellows, and he gave me a stroke a hole....and I didn't choke just knowing I was playing with a pro...

Maybe I could keep it close...maybe not. If he wants to give me a go, tell him I'll pay for his green fees and his cart. And I'll buy him lunch. But he should keep his girlfriend home. No, he can bring his girlfriend. I'll buy her lunch too. Why not?

I'll go a $2 nassau....

FORE RIGHT!!!!

If he was allowed to pick which club....i think the answer is 1. He'd probably shoot close to par with a 6 or 7 iron but i usually do that too. I think it could be a good match

 

If i got to pick with clubs he could use it would be easier, because if you just gave him 52-56-60 or something it would be tough to shoot around par, so the answer might be 3 or 4

I would use his +15 handicap from the first round of the PGA. I would say I'm a "15". Take my 30 pops and he can keep all his clubs.

 

In all seriousness. These guys can hit sand shots with 4 irons. As long as he is if he's on I'm not sure straight up I could beat him with anything more than one club. A putter. He would bend that thing on the first or second smack has hard as he swings.

It would be interesting though.

I remember reading something about Bubba four or five years ago where he played a casual round with some buddies. Brought two golf balls and a hybrid with which he shot 77 I believe. I’m usually pretty happy with that score.

I think my chances would be better starting at the other end. Give him just his driver and I reckon I could beat him. I’ll give him a 3 wood too...

He can keep all 14 clubs. Match play. Stroke play is for wussies.

 

I get gimmies inside 8 feet. I get to break one of his fingers--OF MY CHOOSING--per side, and as a compromise his gf can walk with us wearing something OF MY CHOOSING while heckling me about being fat.

 

Pretty sure it'll come down to me losing 7&5 or something but it will be a round neither of us will ever forget.

This is either one of the most inspired or disturbed posts of all time, I just can't figure out which.

well then i'm in your head. Match play gamesmanship good sir. you're losing already. Brooks doesn't seem to respond to mental torture so we must do something to level the playing field. my back is shot so I'm down physically, he's a health icon of the tour so we must find equal footing. fingers heal quickly and by the end of the front 9 he will have managed to first aid to mitigate the negative effects, hence the second breakage at the turn.
