Opposite Handed Players 3-Wood vs Driver?

If you are right handed in swinging the club but naturally left handed in writing, throwing, etc. and vice versa for left handed swingers, how hard is it for you to hit the driver vs the 3-wood off the tee?

I play golf, bowl, throw, bat left handed. I write, throw frisbee, play tennis right handed. 3W vs Driver? I have no idea what you're asking.

My closest golf buddy is righty in all things but golf.  He plays off a 6 hcp and has no real problems with either club.

I don’t understand why the question either...

I can think of a guy who is right handed in all things except golf and is excellent with the driver;  hits it a long way, sometimes has to send out a search party for it, but his driver helps him a lot more than it hurts him.

This question brings to mind a word problem from a Tom Robbins novel.

"If a chicken and a half can lay an egg and a half in a day and a half...how long would it take a monkey with a wooden leg to kick the seeds out of a dill pickle?"

Wow! Which hand do you perform surgery with? Asking for a friend.😉

Hey have you ever done the dominant eye test, if not just put one finger up in the air and align it with something a couple of metres away with both eyes open, then close your left eye and then open your left eye and close your right eye, if the finger moves more away from the thing you lined up with when only your left eye is open then you are naturally right handed and if it moves away more when only your right eye is open you are naturally left handed. I'd say if you learned to play golf with the wrong handedness especially if you are strongly one handed like me and the finger moves a long way for one eye and nothing for the dominant one then you may have a problem with playing well in general IMHO.

Not necessarily.

Almost 1/3 of people are cross dominant.  Meaning that while they are right-handed, they are left eye dominant, or vice versa.
