It's normal not to find LH stuff at most places. It's about money. Which is sad, but that's what it is. I don't think that GG or any box store needs to keep a huge inventory of LH putters, but if they were to have 1 maybe 2 of certain OEM's they would sell, and probably very quickly. I mean they have 42 different models from titleist, 20 from Ping, 35 from Odyssey, and then in the Lefty section they 3 putters 1 TM, 1 used Odyssey, and 1 Wilson. How about you take some of the dollars from the plethora of RH putters and put a few LH models. They will sell, probably pretty quick to.

Well said! GG doesn't cater to us - but Dicks (their parent co) is even worse for us.

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

It's strange, but I have had more success finding left handed clubs at a local store here in Metro-Detroit.

 

Granted, it is a huge golf specific shop, (can feel like GG) but there are only two locations and both are in Metro-Detroit.

 

Huge left handed only section with new and used selections across multiple price ranges. I am fortunate, because GG and other “national” shops are pretty crappy to lefties.

I hear there. I don't usually buy without at least touching the items, but in LH stuff, sometimes you just have to guess.

Do you lefties prefer dog legs right or dog legs left?

 

 

Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

When I began playing, I preferred the dog leg left. Lately though it's been the dog leg right as I've gone from a fade/slice to a draw/hook.

Utility iron; not the driver irons!!!! Looking at improvement on 5 iron. I know (or am sure it's ego) vice proper swing and club selection. Looking to see if any lefty has had success with any of the new utility irons. #5(24-26) degree mainly. My bag:

Titleist Driver-Wedge. 915h1 2hy set 18*. 3hy set 21*. 5 iron consistent. 165-180. But was thinking the Srixon U45/U65 irons; among others, MP MMC flu hi, ping crossover. Being lefty and a traditionalist. Makes it hard to find them all to demo at Golf Galaxy, Dicks, or Golf courses here In Austin Texas. Thank you in advance. Apologies for War and Peace thread.

It's funny how it doesn't bother some guys at all, BUT others drives them Bat Crap. We have one guy who turns his back when a LH is teeing off.

Maybe swinging lefty sticks subconsciously drives me crazy...that explains why I can't hit a golf ball!

I had another opportunity last weekend to hit a RH shot from next to a tree. I had 130ish yards, I flipped over my 8 iron, hit it a bit heavy, on line just came up about 10 yards short, chipped to about 8 feet and made the putt for par. I love making par that way.

Robertana, I used to struggle with the exact same issue and still tend to see it pop up again ESPECIALLY early in the round or if I am getting tired(unfocused).  I tried going the YouTube route and figuring it out in the beginning (I was too arrogant to take lessons)----which worked for a while and then my swing got worse but I didn't understand why. 

 

The best advice I can give comes from personal experience all within the past year.  Please, do yourself a favor and go see a professional instructor, preferably with video/recording capabilities.   Everyone swings a club differently and there are multiple causes for a slice.  A swing flaw cannot accurately be diagnosed without seeing the swing and then there are different methods (opinions) for "fixing" what is wrong. Professional instruction has been the best for my game, and being able to see what I am doing on a video monitor while being corrected has helped me learn why the swing corrections are working.  

 

 

If you must rely on YouTube start off with this one series:  Rick is not left handed so we make due with what we have available.

I say this again because it is the BEST way to fix a swing and that is go find an instructor and take lessons.

Agree with with this post. As soon as I feel I'm going “sideways” I go to a Teaching Pro. Saves me a great deal of angst. I know I'll never be really good but I do want to play as well as I can. See your local PGA Professional.

It seems as though a slice off the tee is the price you have to pay for playing from the right side of the ball. It's a real common ailment for lefties, as far as I can tell.

 

On a different note, I went into the pro shop at the course I was going to play today, and there were a bunch of left handed clubs. I commented on them to my buddy, the member, and he told me the pro is a lefty. Looks like I've found someplace to try to get some lessons.

Funny enough, I was on a cruise ship and they had a golf simulator with a PGA pro on board. Guess what... He was a lefty! So I took two lessons while onboard (short game chopping and iron swings). Kind of hard to practice chipping when the boat was a rockin', lol. I forgot his name but he's the only pro I've come across who was a lefty. Maybe we should start our own YouTube channel... LGC. Lefty Golf Channel 😁.
