No easy, but not much selection if I insist on lefty iron. Still managing, hope to hit straight more.... Swing

Fluffystuff, your MX200 is lefty?

Same as me. Everything left except an occassional right putt !!! I did try right as my instructor was RH and wanted me to try it out...but was clearly in the 'hopeless' level. My left game is much better and is currnetly at 'barely OK' level.

I usually visist the Toa Payoh range (near my home) but can wear out the mat together, somtimes...

I think leftys are fortunate as most you guys are ambidextrous and a strong left arm always helps in golf

i think our only advantage is some golf courses are designed specifically more difficult for right handers, who make up the bulk of the golfing world, my guess is a good lefty wouldnt have these problems

having said that....this lefty (me) can't even hit a ball straight, so such theories will never be put to practice anytime soon Sad

i used to play a bit at toa payoh, but that was before they came up with that electronic scoring thing and started charging more. Didnt appreciate that hard feeling on those balls as well, felt like smacking a rock with your clubs
