is it normal (more so than other sports) for people to play opposite of their natural hand dominance?
this question is based on an episode of Entourage, in which Ari is playing against someone in a high stakes game, and his coach (phil mickelson) in which the guy plays right handed the whole time until the stakes are upped and he switches to lefty (phil makes a comment about him being better as a lefty, like him) and a post in the club throwing thread, where a member mentions being a natural lefty, except when playing golf.
does anybody else play opposite of their natural hand dominance?
and more importantly what are the reasons for people doing this? right handed clubs being more readily available? some kind of strategic advantage?
mainly curious, b/c i come from a baseball background where the advantages are obvious (switch sides based on handedness of pitcher)
