Everything a lefty golfer needs to succeed in a right-handed world

Golf instruction for lefties

Right-handers might think that golf instruction for lefties is the same as for them; just switch all references of the word “right” for “left” and vice versa. This is true for the most part according to Bob Charles the original legendary lefty pro golfer, however, many left hand golfers will tell you that it isn’t all that simple.

First off, the pictures in golf instruction are almost always righty. Something gets lost in the lefty mind’s translation when looking at a right-hander swing a golf club and trying to “picture” yourself (as a lefty) in that position. Obviously if you have no other choice, then then changing the words and pictures in your mind is what you must do when looking at any instruction for lefties.
