Hitting a golf ball with from your dominant side can be hard enough. But how about hitting it opposite handed?

The creative folks at the European Tour did some research ahead of the Scottish Open with their new Left Handed Challenge to see how the world's best golfers could fare hitting as a lefty.

Simple goal: Get the ball closest to the pin.

Not so simple execution. Patrick Reed found himself yelling "fore" as his attempt sailed into the stands. Rickie Fowler had a great line but came up short. Ian Poulter? His attempts went frustratingly bad. Ultimately, Henrik Stenson -- who tried telling the camera that his shot wouldn't go well -- striped a shot to 2 feet and won the closest to the pin challenge. 

Take a look at all the impressive -- and impressively bad -- attempts in the video below.
