I would appreciate your related feedback if there are others going through a similar painful process.
I seem to be having a different outcome from trying to be a hitter than some others here. I am a lefty playing right-handed and this has had more negative consequences than I could have possibly thought possible.
Forgetting the backswing, I have always started my downswing by turning my left shoulder socket hard around and pulling my left arm downwards. I have a very good minds eye picture of where my left hand is in space.
Like most people, the hand you DON’T write with is not aware in your mind. It is for this reason I am having great difficulty becoming a hitter where the right side is dominant.
I have swung a club left handed and I can feel the left hand moving around the right hand as it moves through P3 and I can feel the hit well with it. Of course the contact is terrible as I have never played this way.
I don’t have the same feeling when doing the same thing right handed. Maybe there’s some drills about awakening the feel in the right hand.
The point is that for some reason I can’t translate the left arm/handed dominance very well into the hitting protocol.
