It amazes me when I get paired up with a group at a course get up to the first tee box and there is always that one guy who says “o you're swinging from the wrong side”, I don't get upset but I think to myself does he see me as a unicorn do people not often play with lefties

New flat stick! Sent from my SM-G950W using Tapatalk

If I do everything right handed except swing clubs, bats and sticks, do I still get to join the left handed thread?  

Calling all Lefties - how about a thread that's dedicated to us. Some thoughts: sources for video Instruction where we don't have to translate it from right hand to left hand. Perhaps best vendors for

Yes, they do a good job of LH equipment as well. I just have never gotten along with either one of them. I am intrigued about the G400, but not sure when I will get a chance to try one.

G400 LH drivers are hard to find.

I was told when I first started golfing that lefties have a tendacy to slice the ball more.

All I know is that it's 100% true for this lefty.

I'm of course LH. One daughter is strictly RH; second daughter catches R&L, bats L only and writes R&L.

Ok, question time: How do you fellow lefties that are right eye dominant deal with putting?

 

I've found I can compensate for it a bit on full swings with a small head tilt but I really struggle when I get to the green. The only solution I've found is to pre-line up my putt standing behind it (with a line on the ball) then almost never look at the hole when I'm actually standing over the putt. If I do, I find I instantly lose confidence in that previously chosen line.

I basically do what you do. I've considered getting a right handed putter in the past, just to see what would happen. There are enough people putting cross handed that I wouldn't feel like I had to change my grip, just look at the line differently and let it roll.

 

I might still try it at some point.

WHAT UP MY FELLOW LEFTIES?! 

 

 

 

One major thing I've noticed is that I see very few lefties who are hardcore brand loyal. We have a large % of lefties in the Detroit area for whatever reason and rarely do I see any sporting just one or two brands in their bag. 

 

 

  

 

Well I'll join the fray. I've only got two brands of sticks in my bag.

 

It amazes me when I get paired up with a group at a course get up to the first tee box and there is always that one guy who says “o you're swinging from the wrong side”, I don't get upset but I think to myself does he see me as a unicorn do people not often play with lefties

It never fails. You would thing "righties" would become a little more creative.

I just close my eyes. I honestly never thought being right eye dominant would affect my putting. Does it make a difference?

I've tried it from time to time using my wife's putter, but I just can't get a good control on speed from the right side. Maybe if I was a teenager again I'd put the time & effort into making the switch to putt from that side but found it's just not worth the struggle for me now. 

 

I've considered getting a right handed putter in the past, just to see what would happen.

My issue (i think) is that I wear progressive glasses - so I have a prominent line on my ball - line it up behind the ball like you normally would - and try not to over think what I'm seeing when standing over the ball. I believe the progressive glasses somewhat distort the directional line. 

 

FYI I also putt with my right hand - left hand has very very slight grip on the putter. If I grip too tightly with my left hand or if the left hand hand is prominent in the putting stroke - I'll end up with a strong arc to the swing. 

 

FYI I did try a right hand putter  - terrible results.

That's seems crazy to me. I've heard the large hockey following in Great Lakes states and Canada cited as a reason for a higher percentage of lefty golfers in our land of cold and snow. Makes sense, but I've never seen specific numbers to back that up.

It's true. I'm the only lefty in my family. Friends and work colleagues are all righties. I don't even know of another lefty at my home course. Kor.a.door is the closest one to me, one of these days I'm going to make it over his way and join him for a round.
