Fowler, D Johnson, Mickelson - opposite side swings

9 posts in this topic

Can't embed in mobile version I think, so here's the link. Wish the angle was better but still cool to see. To quote from the movie Signs, "Swing away!"

I would say Phil is cheating because he's a right handed person playing left handed!!

From the article I read, Ricky was the only one to make it on the green. I bet there was money on the line if Phil was in that group. :-P

I'm a right-handed person who plays lefty, and I can barely swing a club from the right side. (Granted, I can barely swing from the left side, either, but still...) DJ left-handed looks like a fader.

This was fun to watch. Nice swing Ricky!

I did this the other day because I'm still not sure which side to swing, equally bad at both.

It looks like right handed gives you a better follow through.

Yeah I've been playing right handed for a full year and just started trying left so righty is more comfortable right now. Time will tell, but it looks like I'll probably stay right handed.

Are you left handed? I am for pretty much everything. The only reason why I am ambidextrous is because my parents and teachers made me use right hand. So, I fumbled through life till I broke my wrist at 13 only to discover that I am actually left handed.

When I started playing almost 4 years ago, I played right handed. I switched about 2 years ago, and immediately felt more power. Now, I can't even swing right handed. My entire sequence is all messed up when I try.

Good luck figuring it out. Use the side that feels more natural. We need more lefties, anyway. ;-)

I'm right handed, but I play hockey and baseball left handed. So naturally I can putt just fine left handed, the only thing really holding me back is chipping/pitching. Right handed is wayyyyyy better than left in that regard.
