Trick-shot artistry comes in all forms, but the art of switch-hitting falls into a category all its own.
Often, a player swinging with his non-dominant side looks a little clunky, no matter how talented he or she is (re: Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas playing a spring-quarantine golf match as lefties at Michael Jordan’s golf course, The Grove XXIII in Hobe Sound, Florida – neither broke 90).
Enter Australian Cameron Davis. The 25-year-old showed up with something less than his A-game at the Country Club of Jackson on Sunday, thus sliding down the leaderboard in the final round. But the switch-hitting footage that emerged from 2014 makes Davis a winner regardless.
The below YouTube video of a teenage Davis smoothly striking an iron right-handed (which is how he normally plays) then dropping the club to hit a ball left-handed is downright mesmerizing. If you didn’t know better, you might question which way he actually plays this game (he is, in fact, righty).
