Here at OnlineGolf we also cater for the golfers of the opposite dexterity - the aspiring Phil Mickelsons and Bubba Watsons of this world. The increasing number of left handed golfers in the modern game has prompted the majority of leading brands to expand their ranges and produce their latest equipment in both right and left handed formats. Although some left handed models are only available to custom order, depending on the stock available we provide a collection of various types of left handed golf clubs including, left handed drivers, fairway woods, hybrids, sets of irons, wedges, putters and package sets from all the leading brands including Ping, Wilson, TaylorMade and Titleist.
Left handed golf clubs only differ in terms of the components used in the club’s head apart from the putter. Although they are built in the opposite setup to those of a right handed player, the shaft and grip dynamics remain completely the same. This means that for the majority of clubs you can use a shaft from either a right handed or left handed golf club as this would make completely no difference, presuming these shafts were of adjustable clubs. The only exception of this would be that the adjustable Ping drivers, fairway woods and hybrids do possess a slightly different adjustable adapter for the distinct dexterities. These are therefore advisable to not combine one with the other. The difference therefore within the specifics of the club’s head is the contrasting hosel position of the club that will be angled to the left for the left handed player and so forth the opposite for the right handed player. The putter is the only exception as depending on the make and model, these may distinctively differ to a parallel setup of a right handed putter as the left handed versions are mostly bent on slightly different angle to cater for the natural putting approach that the majority of left handed golfers occupy.
Identical to the process for all right handed golf clubs, choosing the correct shaft is critical in order to ensure the golfer receives the full benefit of using these excellent pieces of modern day golfing equipment. Depending on whether these are required to be custom ordered, left handed golf clubs include an array of shaft options situated across various different flexes. Such as Extra Stiff, Stiff, Regular, Soft Regular, Lady Flex and Junior Flex. The most suitable flex option is dependent on a golfer’s club head speed, the two should correspond with each other in order to match the club’s ability to bend parallel to the speed of the golfer’s swing. This allows the golfer to feel in complete control of the club head’s path and thus prompting a more confident delivery towards impact.
The main difference between a right handed and left handed golf club, design wise, is the club head. The grips and handles aren’t usually specifically designed for which hand they go in, instead it’s the club head that changes. With left handed golf clubs, the hosel (the part of the head that is attached to the club) is angled to the left, and the player must stand on the right side of the ball.
Left handed people, unite! We’re going to teach you how to hold your left handed golf clubs. Hold the top of the grip with your right hand and place your left hand against the grip from the side with your fingers pointing down. Then, move your right hand to cup over your left slightly, and wrap your fingers around. Make sure the golf club passes across your left palm, through your index finger base to above your little finger. Keep it placed here, so you don’t complete a swooping swing. When the club is in your palm, it controls the swing much more and leads to greater accuracy. When you follow through with your swing, make sure you’re rotating at the hips.
