My son really likes to "golf" with me in the yard. He's turning three this year and I'd like to get him a juniors' wedge to play with. Right now, he hits his little plastic clubs and balls, and I think he'd really enjoy hitting a real club.
Problem is, he hasn't really exhibited any real signs of hand dominance, yet. One meal he will use his fork with his right hand; the next meal he will use his left. Same thing happens when he draws. Since his plastic clubs are double sided, he can hit them both ways, but I have noticed that he hits it better swinging left handed than right handed.
Should I buy him a left handed club because his natural swing is better from that side? I'm not sure that hand dominance matters in golf as much as say, hockey, but I think it will matter in terms of his enjoyment. I remember reading that Phil Mickelson swings left handed because he mirrored what his father did when he was a child, which is what I think my son is doing.
I know there are a few threads regarding junior golf clubs, but I haven't really found anything that answers my question, so how do you know what handed clubs to buy for your children? I'd really like to avoid buying two clubs if I can, so any help would be appreciated.
