Deciding to go with left or right handed clubs has been a difficult decision for new golfers both young and old. For those who are not sure and can’t find a real advantage in technique or ball striking on either side of the club, consider the following… being able to square the clubface at impact is the critical factor whether you feel more powerful on one side or the other. Some people are able to do this with their dominant hand on top in a pulling fashion while others are certainly more capable of squaring the face with the hand that would throw a ball or sign their name. You should also consider how well you are able to swing in balance, and find a balanced finish position standing on either side of the golf ball during a swing. You will find that it will be easier to pivot onto one leg more than the other. The fact of the matter is that there have been great players throughout the years with their dominant hand in both leading and following positions in there golf swings. The bottom line is that if you are not sure you need to try swinging from both sides and see what side of the ball you can better ‘square the clubface’ at impact on, making sure that you can swing and finish in balance. If you are still not sure, seek out the services of your local CPGA Golf Professional to help you through the process.
