started hacking with a 5 iron 1 month ago, read books, magazines, tips..... practised in my backyard with plastic balls often during weekend. and during weekdays I just go to a baseball field nearby and practise with plastic balls... hit the driving range once a week. because of the athleticism from tennis and a half dozen other sports I play, my swing is already better than 70% of the people I see on the driving range. (haven't hit the course yet). somethings I want to discuss with those who transformed tennis skills to golf, mainly on which side should I hit from. I am a tennis rightie, and seems most right handed people golf right handed. I am currently golfing right handed, but I feel lot more natural when I tried my lefty friend's iron club for a few balls... I gave it some thoughts and here it is: 1. dominant eye.. my right eye is the dominant one. golfing left handed let the right eye stay dominant, hence seeing better. when golf rightie however, sometimes my head turn too much and the right eye is blocked by the nose (I know I shouldn't move my head anyway, but when can you expect from a 1-month beginner). 2. arm position and flexibility.... I feel the golf swing take back is so IDENTICAL to the tennis one handed backhand slice, which is my signature tennis shot. and after these tennis years, my flexibility turning to the left is far better than the other way.... in tennis the body turn is less significant on forehands. 3. leg stability... again the left leg provides the drive in a tennis back hand slice, this is very similar to the leftie golf downswing. personally my left leg is so dominant even when I hit tennis forehand my footwork is somewhat crossed and the left leg provides more drive than the right leg. Anyway, I am gonna hit some more with leftie clubs and it the above is confirmed, will be a leftie golfer for good. Guys if you have some experience on this, or any subject on the relationship between tennis/golf, please chime in.
