Left handed person that plays right with a right eye dominate - Page 2

post #19 of 23
Eye dominance isn't something we can change. It's involuntary
However you can get a bit better control of your nondominant hand and arm.
Right handed and left handedness had nothing to do with the type of clubs
Mike Weir and Phil Mickelson write with their right hand and use lefty clubs
Tiger and Nicklaus write with their right hand and use righty clubs
There are lots of players I know are left handed and use righty clubs and play to scratch

Nicklaus was Left eye dominant.

Write, Throw, Punch, Flip People Off with my right hand
Golf Swing, Hockey Swing, Baseball bat swing lefty
Right eye dominant

I'm possibly the second best golfer named Phil with these characteristics (probably not a3_biggrin.gif)

I am also "cross-dominant", of sorts.   I am ambidextrous, but mostly biased to being a righty.  I went through elementary schoool as a lefty, but was switched over to righty because I kept dragging my hand through my writing, smudging the pencil all of the time.  I am still left eye dominant, but play golf as a righty.  I can, and do play hockey and baseball either way, and actually have more power as a lefty in baseball, but batting righty lets me choose to hit off-field at will because my dominant eye is closer to the ball when it comes to the plate and I can get a better bead on it.  That's my theory, anyway.  I switched over to left hand low for putting last season, and I have seen a remarkable improvement.  In my mind, I think it helped to get my dominant eye over the ball more....or maybe not, but it works for me.

that's interesting, I play tennis and I felt that when I turn my chin a bit to the right on the return of serve I can read the serve better when its coming towards me. Im left eye dom so that would position my dom eye slightly in front.  

In hockey I would be a left hand shot but didnt like to play from the left wing, as i could see the play develop from right side of the rink better for some reason, your reasoning makes sense
