Rickie Fowler has been hanging out with Phil Mickelson a lot. But I didn't think Lefty would rub off on him this much. Fowler revealed recently that he sometimes plays golf left-handed for the sake of symmetry.

"I have a lefty set at home," Fowler told the Associated Press recently. "I played once in a while. I'll mess around with them. I think it's great to have symmetry."

Fowler went on to say he played Jupiter Country Club from the tips left-handed once. 

"I shot 110. And that was counting everything."

Impressive stuff to be sure. But maybe not the most impressive thing I've heard about Fowler all week. That award goes to him for hitting the island green at TPC Sawgrass while blindfolded. Or maybe for his epic Snapchat adventure with Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Smylie Kaufman.

But still. A 110 from the tips with your wrong hand is pretty legit.
