it's easier to play right in the sense tht u can get the equip much much much easier......
and if u wana try new equip, i bet u can do it easier playing right..

but if u want to play left, i got 2 spare sets if u interested. (1 regular flex, 1 stiff) good enough for learning. Smile

Why you should play using your right hand....
(extracted from http://www.golflink.com/how_6210_play-golf-course-left-handed.html)

Step 1
Realize that when you play a round of golf that the course is built for a right-handed golfer. It is much easier for most right-handed golfers to hit a ball from left to right than it is from right to left. There may 6 dog leg holes on the course, and 5 of them will bend left to right while only one will go right to left.

Step 2
If you are playing in a tournament or an important match, the placement of the holes will have a tendency to to be in the upper left portion of the green. This works in favor of the right-handed approach which will normally go high and roll toward the left when it comes down.

Step 3

Take a positive attitude when you play. These may be small advantages for the right-handed golfer but they can easily be overcome by a left-handed golfer who hits the ball solidly and can think as they play the game. Don't get defeated by the circumstances of the game or the layout of the course.

Step 4
Learn how to hit a controlled hook shot. As most golfers learn to play the game, they learn how to hit a shot with right-to-left action as well as a shot with left-to-right action. You should understand that your need a square stance as you address the ball and that your must have an even weight transfer as well as a strong snap of the left wrist to get your ball to go left to right on those dog leg right holes.

Step 5
Read the greens carefully when you get ready to putt. Your playing partners may be all right-handed and they may have putted before you. You can read their putts and get information from watching them strike the ball, but you will have to reverse the information when you are standing over the ball. You may be better off forgetting what they have done and standing behind the ball and reading it yourself before taking one practice swing and hitting it.

I am also a left handed but decided to switch to righ handed due to limited left handed equipment choices. The price also don't come cheap. Till now, i have no regret changing to right handed since i am starting from fresh. It is a matter of getting use to it and practice.

Hi Hi
Saints and new to golf most importantly I'm a lefty! Reporting here as indicated to me in the intro thread.

My clubs (Cobra Fairway Woods 3 & 5, Kasco Rescue , Callaway iron 3-9,AW,SW,PW, Gel Mallet Putter (don't remember what model)
Sorry to mention, all the clubs above (except putter) are second hand!

Oh yes, I don't have a proper driver. Only an old-school Callaway Biggest Bertha S2H2 11* to practice) So I am wondering if the Cobra ZL is still available for test drives? Embarassed

I am sure the mentioned driver will be available. Come down tomorrow to SSN (Starry starry night at MBGC rooftop) to try it out.

Btw, I bought the Lady Cobra S91 after the trial and I am loving it!!
