Well then, this is quite impressive. Michelle Wie posted an Instagram video of her using a left-handed club to take a shot. Although there are switch hitters in baseball (Guys who hit both left and right), you definitely don’t see anybody hitting a golf club from both sides because for one, that would mean you’d have to have two separate set of clubs (Sets for each side) and two, you’d have to make sure you have the proper technique and grip on the left side as to where baseball’s switch hitters, all they have to do is use the same batting stance. In golf, there’s so many things you have to make sure of and you also have to learn the famous Harry Vardon grip on the other side as well which is no easy task (Tried it and it feels so weird. WEIRD DUDE!). Now, we’ve seen golfer hit a shot left-handed before but only because they’re ball was stuck right next to a tree to the point where they couldn’t hit from the right side but it didn’t look nowhere near as pretty as Michelle’s swing and it’s impressive to see. See, putting left-handed shouldn’t be a big deal (Just hit it baby!) but a full swing is tough especially if you’re trying to get some distance on the ball. Way to go Michelle! Keep doing you girl and get some wins too!
