Golfer Brooks Koepka made sure he’ll be popular at Bethpage with his beer triumph.

In an event set up by his sponsor Michelob Ultra, Koepka was on a hill on Governor’s Island and had the goal to hit th green set up on a barge floating in the Hudson.

He hit the target about 130 yards away, according to Golf Digest.
