Re: Left handed playing right hand golf

Very few people talk about the trailing WRIST - it's almost all about the left wrist for righties, which is your "dominant" hand. In other words, left wrist position is the subject of far more instruction articles than right wrist position (for righties). So you may in fact have a small advantage.
More likely your handicap has to do with other flaws that have become exposed because you play less than you did when you were a junior. I suggest you get a series of lessons. Being "wristy" in the golf swing involves both wrists, so placing the blame on playing from one side or the other strikes me as nothing more than an excuse.
Also, I don't know if it's been mentioned, but Phil Mickelson is a natural righty who plays left-handed.
