Where To Find New And Used Left Handed Golf Clubs

Are you looking to buy left-handed clubs? These resources will point you toward all the best choices in drives, wedges, putters and other clubs you need.

General consensus by those that have written the history of the left-handed golfer agree that the first organized left-handed golf tournament occurred in New England in 1925. But unbelievably, it was not until 1960 that the First Flight Company of Chattanooga, Tennessee, manufactured the first left-handed golf club (It seems First Company is now out of business).

Some 45 years on, lefties now have a wide selection of golf clubs to choose from and can find them relatively easily. Several online shops can fulfill your order, or you can walk into several retail outlets and come out with clubs as good as any right-handed set. Brands that are available for lefties include Callaway, Cleveland, Cobra, Mizuno, Ping, Srixon, Taylor, and Wilson. The U.S. Professional Golfers Association (PGA) has fewer than five professional members who are left-handed, perhaps attesting to the fact that the layouts of courses still favor the right-handed player. But with top-notch equipment now available, only duffers will try to use equipment as an excuse for that high handicap!
