Left Handed Golf Club Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need right or left handed golf clubs?
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.
How to grip a golf club left handed
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.
