Lexi's brother is a switch-hitting long driver

Last year Lexi Thompson was second on the LPGA tour in driving distance, averaging nearly 270 yards per poke.

Seems her 22-year-old brother Curtis, a former standout at LSU, has an affinity for the long ball, as well.

During an exhibition Tuesday at the PGA Show Outdoor Demo Day, Curtis bashed away on five drives, his longest topping out at 316 yards. Lexi’s best was 285. 

That was impressive and all, but where Curtis really starred was when he spun around in the batter’s box and crushed drives left-handed. On-course spies said he whacked one 278 yards. 

Boom baby!! @bombsquad_lsu being creative with his lefty swings
