Gents,

appreciate the advice.  I guess being told your left handed and we don’t have a very big selection for you to demo so many times.  I guess you get the “numb no’s”. I seriously doubt they would swap out shafts of a club for sale.  Or demo shafts tipped for TE.  Either way worth a shot.  Hit a F8+ with Hzrdus 5.5 (Yellow).  Long club.  Happy Range, course time if you get it.  Texas went from drought to flooding creeks, reservoirs, lakes and Dams near peak stage levels in 2 months.  Courses look great with no one on them to ruin fairways or greens.

I have been casually watching the current Driver vs Driver on TGC.   I say casually because I DVR it and fast forward through much of it.   On the last episode, they had attendees at the PGA show demo the drivers.  While I understand it, never the less, there was not one lefty that demoed.  None of the prototypes were made in a left handed model.  But that's life in golf for a lefty.  Make and distribute right handed equipment then accommodate the lefties, we have no need for their development input.  Again, I understand why, but it shows us lefties our position in the golf equipment world.

Although I don’t watch cable TV. MGS is one of major golf world sources.  It won’t be in our time but somewhere down the line a true left handed or more hopefully will change OEMs need to produce full range of golf equipment.  Yes we love Phil. But he is right handed playing lefty in the back end of his career.  Jordan Spieth is lefty playing right handed. No need to change for him.  Mike Wier was a short stint in lime light.  Enough of a rant.  I sent a similar comment, article request to MGS writer JB.  He has since forwarded it to MGS editor and owners for further research.  Let’s hope we get included in further testing somewhere down the road.

OEM’s will always cater to the right handed golfer, demos, mostly right handed, there are very few that give Lefty equipment in all the ranges of their equipment. Right handed golf era will not ever understand, because everything they may want, they can get. Like oooh, that’s a nice putter, where do I find it, everywhere. As a Lefty, oooh that’s a nice putter, sorry, RH only. It’s the same with many clubs not just putters. We just have to figure out who makes equipment for us and who doesn’t, I try not to purchase clubs where an OEM only makes few LH clubs, if a company makes and offers a wide variety in Lefty selection, that’s who I want to support, the more we buy from them, the more they will continue to make it.

Spot on - let's also add buying from the retailers that support lefties as well. Guess that'll leave out some of the big box stores.

I am not a big box store advocate.  Sure I test, or look for off season sales.  But when it comes to upgrading or trading in.  I go with smaller shops that remember who I am, left handed and loyal buyer.

How about a lefty classifieds section? The amount of times I've got excited about something in the classifieds only to see it being right handed but not in the ad other then pictures is way too many to count.

I seem to recall someone else suggested that as well. Wonder if we can get the mods to do a little bit of programming to appease those of us in our right minds.

I have to agree with most everybody here when it comes to buying equipment. I'm searching to replace my outdated irons and no one within 50 miles of has any lefty demo clubs. I've resorted to buying models (Ping primarily, 7 irons)  that may interest me thru Ebay. On the plus side, I get a much better trial period than just at the range. and lefty clubs, if you are patient can be easy on the wallet.

This one line should be the post of the week.
