Any Crosshanded players out there??

Hello fellow spies! I’m a 4 handicap, crosshanded golfer throughout the bag, from putter all the way up to driver. Curious to see if anyone else plays that way and who, if anyone, they’ve received instruction from.

One of our better golfers at our course who has won numerous club championships, as well as other events, chips cross handed, but the rest of his game is traditional.

Just tried a "full" swing in the living room like this. Feels like I'm going to break my wrist or hand or quite possibly I might just disintegrate?

@amarc17 Never tried anything cross handed. I would like to know how you got started playing this way? I have seen a few do it but not to the low single digits like you.

Seems like I remember VJ chipping that way several years ago.

Yep, he did (not sure, but I think he still is chipping that way)

Saw a guy do this the other night playing softball.  First thought was WTF??  Could only imagine seeing that on the golf course. How does one even do that?

I played with a young Hawaiian guy who nothing short of crushed the ball hitting cross handed. It was pretty amazing to see. He used a crossed handed grip on every club in the bag. He was a really big dude too.

Yes he does.

 

I've experimented with chipping crosshanded since I putt that way, and it works fairly well, it's not something I'd use in every shot, but if you struggle to make consistent contact on chips, it could work.

I’m cross handed just in putting. I’m left handed but play right handed. Putting cross handed feels better to me.

I’ve tried cross handed pitches and chips. Seems like every shot was a short flop shot. Maybe I probably should put it into my game.

I can't shoot my age, but I can shoot my temperature...

I basically picked up a club as a kid and taught myself. Took a few lessons growing up but it was ingrained in me.... by that point the instructors just went with it. I’ve since learned from a few other instructors a lot of kids may pick up the club that way but typically either switch or are told to switch to conventional. I will say though, from what I’ve also heard, including below in this thread, seems like crosshanded hitters can hit it out there. Its not the first time I’ve heard from others that fact.

I’ve never met anyone else thats like me in this regard though, would love to one day just to pick their brain!
