Re: Lefties get no respect...The bigger of our two Edwin Watts stores has a respectable lefty selection for most things. Putters are a notable exception. Local GG is pretty pitiful by comparison -- The demo iron bag is notably laughable... With about 30 six irons to have a whack with, only 3 are lefties.
Re: Lefties get no respect...How's this?
Last month we played our final pennant game of the season. (It was our last game because we lost and didn't make the final)
We play in groups of 4, 2 matches per group, and ALL FOUR in our group were lefties. My mate thought he'd come check out the action and carried my bag for me (nice guy), and he too, is Lefty....

Re: Lefties get no respect...Keep it down............all theses righties havent figured it out that it is easier from the other side of the ball!!!!!!!!
My best advice is to find a filthy rich business owner that loves golf and tell him to go out and buy the latest and greatest stuff and when he cant hit em just purchase his stuff......thats what i do. hahaha
I am right-handed in general, nevertheless I can live with left hand only decently (tested due injuries). Yet, I play all games which require bats, rackets, clubs or cues by holding it from the end of the butt with right hand (it means I play tennis and snooker from right side, ice hockey, baseball and golf from left side.)
My friends told I should start playing golf from right side, even it felt completely unnatural when I tried it. So, I chose to be a lefty. I feel my shots from left are significantly harder and more natural to me.
How can I tell in my profile I am "lefty?" I could not find the switch from the settings.
Here in Northern Finland it´s rather easy to be lefty. I would say the ratio of lefties to righties is 1:4 or 1:5 whenever I visit either range or course. I use Mizuno MP59 irons and Titleist 910 woods, both of them available for lefties also.
I'm left handed and I'm also part of the problem. I took up the game of golf at age 7 playing right handed and never even saw a left handed club until I was 12. I think there are a lot of natural left handers that play right handed and that cuts the demand for left handed clubs even further.
My wife is also left handed. When she took up golf, I suggested that she start right handed because of available equipment and it seems golf instructions are referenced from a right-handed golfer's point of view.
I wonder if those numbers will come up in time. I think 50 +/- years ago, it seemed almost taboo to be left-handed.
I can relate to some frustrations because I've lived it.......but this is much less applicable in todays age. As someone who has played 20+ years, I clearly remember the days when manufactures simply didn't make some models for lefties as recent as the 1990s. They were usually the good clubs I wanted to buy!! We had to settle for something else...........
Today, it's much less of an issue. Now days...we can get anything in left hand. I do admit that some stores still neglect the lefty in some respects with their selection. I suppose I am lucky to live in a city where there are many retail choices to buy clubs. IE....I generally avoid places like Dicks because their lefty selection always underwhelms. Of course they say...."Hey, we can order it" but this is the incorrect answer. I know of at least a couple places that carry a nice selection of lefty gear and this is where I go to buy my clubs... if I can do club testing in front of pro-style launch monitors and they stock the clubs I want....I don't even care if I'm getting the lowest price. It's all about service and selection.......imo
