I would like to address this question to those who are left handed and who plays golf right handed:

Just wondering, do you switch for putting? If not, have you ever tried it?

What specific weaknesses do you think may be caused in your golf by playing 'the wrong way around'?

I am left handed and I golf right handed, and putt right handed. I have never tried putting opposite. Maybe I should, although putting is one of the strengths of my game.

I'm right handed, and play golf left handed, including putting. Any other lefties who are right handed? The only other person I know who swings lefty is also right handed.

Wow, thanks for your replies, I have always wondered if that would be possible but it really is :) Very informative and makes me realize, almost nothing is impossible to those who are determined. Thanks for sharing...

Haha, I've been thinking about your post alot and today I was on the course and golfing with a lefty golfer, I decided to try putting lefty! It wasn't too awkward, and I did ok. I might stick with it! =)

I am right-handed and I play right-handed, but when putting I go left-handed because for some reason I feel more comfortable over the ball and I dont Push the ball, like I do when I putt right-handed.

I write left handed but my right arm is more powerful. When I first started playing, I noticed that I could drive much further left handed, but I had no control. I also messed up my back at the driving range. I think it was because I was using my back muscles too much in my swing. I now swing right handed. My drive is still lousy, but at least I don't have the back problems anymore.
