I was born left handed, and forced to use right in the name of "tradition". When I broke my right wrist, I had no choice.
My kids are both left handed, but learned everything right handed. I tried to encourage them to use their natural hands, but they decide on their own to use their right hands.
Me and my son still golf lefty, though.
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
I saw that you are a lefty almost 2 years ago, and immediately went out to look for Mizuno MX-25 and found some JPX-825 Pro (forged) so it can be made flatter. Mizuno does not make them for lefties. So, I ended up getting lots of lefty clubs, some new and some used.
Still a little challenging to get lefty stuff if you don't fit a standard size.
Wow, are we all the lefties in this forum?
