The PGA Tour's longtime slogan, "These guys are good," took new meaning ahead of the Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass on Tuesday.

Rickie Fowler joined Phil Mickelson and Dustin Johnson for a practice round and when the trio reached the world-famous, par-3, island green 17th hole, Fowler took to Instagram to show us just exactly how good these guys are.

Fowler and Johnson each hit a tee shot left handed, while Mickelson turned around and hit one right handed. You can see the video Fowler posted here:

While the video doesn't show the end result, rumor out of Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla., has it that Fowler's left-handed effort settled a mere 12 feet from the hole.

And how about those swings from the opposite side of the ball from where they typically play?

To die for, for most.
